While it's hilarious to read, and I can appreciate the enthusiasm, I don't really understand the waiting in line bit, or trying to "beat the system" with a Target/Radio Shack/Best Buy pre-order that you know won't actually work. Hitting refresh on your email over and over just waiting for that email confirmation from these large retailers that have proven time after time they can't be trusted to pre-order anything for release day delivery. Is it worth it? All that stress, order it online, then go to the store anyway, then try to cancel, ordering multiple phones in hopes one of them may arrive as day earlier than the other? On hold with Apple/AT&T/Verizon for hours, dealing with idiots who all give you a different answer, seems pretty stressful to me to obtain a phone that's slightly better than your existing phone a few days earlier than the guy next to you who really doesnt care you got yours today instead of next week. I was awake for a grand total of 92 seconds. Set alarm, roll over, open Apple Store app, click, click, click, I'll have my phone sometime in the next 10 days. It's just a phone people, your time and mental health worrying about getting a phone on release day just doesnt seem worth all the trouble. In 2 weeks, no one will care you got yours today at the expense of hours and hours of extra time. Good luck out there today, I hope the "ooooooohs" and "aaahhhhhs" of your co-workers and friends are worth it when you have the same phone today (maybe) everyone else will have in a week.
