Apple Faithful Start Lining Up For iPhone 6

I think the only time I ever knowingly lined up to buy anything was when our daughter was much younger and wanted to get the new Harry Potter book at a midnight release at a local bookstore. It was actually kinda fun, with a bunch of kids staying up too late, eating "every flavor beans" and wearing Hogwarts house colors, etc. I can't say I'd line up now for a digital device that is *probably* going to be announced next week (do these folk take time off work for this?). Still, I guess someone has to be first in line, eh?
Apple has many faithful fans but this latest example might be taking things a bit far. Fans are already lining up at Apple's 5th Avenue store in New York for the unannounced device. 
It's not unusual for Apple fans to do this as it has happened with every launch, starting with the first iPhone. What makes this instance unique is that the phone has not been announced, we don't know the price or more importantly, when it will ship. What if Apple says it won't be out for 3 weeks after it is announced on Tuesday?
Apple is likely to talk about the iWatch at its event too but that device may not ship until 2015 which would means that sitting in line now for the device would defy all logic too...
