    Not only are people getting run over, crashing their cars, finding dead bodies, getting robbed, falling off cliffs and quitting their jobs to play Pokemon Go, now it's causing stampedes. So why aren't the police stopping stampedes like this from happening? Oh yeah, because they are playing Pokemon Go too. :D

    I guess they figured out how to get people to exercise without realizing it.

    I can't believe someone managed to make Ingress 100 times as dorky, yet 100 times more popular.

    This might have been a Pokemon meetup and they went out to hunt stuff. It's actually really damn cool to get people into something like this. Nintendo has done it again.

    Saw a car stop randomly on a major freeway for a brief time, initially slowed down but completely stopped and didnt even bother to go to the shoulder. I could only think of one thing

    You guys should actually try the game, or at least watch a YouTube video of it. The game start screen shows a big warning to be aware of your surroundings. Stupid people will do stupid things, no matter what's in their hands. People blaming the game for bad behavior are the same people that blame the guns for the shootings.

    I was reluctant, because of the Pokemon aspect, but it's basically geocaching made more modern and fun. It's a bit of exercise too. For me, it gets me out of the house a little more. I was running all over last night and it wore me out. I saw other people playing too. One positive story I read was from a librarian excited to see more people coming to the library.

    If you don't like the Pokemon, I bet there will be another version with scary, bloody monsters to fight instead. Then you can feel safe in your little clique. Doom Go? Fallout Go?

    Don't need a virus for a zombie apocalypse. Pokemon Go seems to have made a ton of zombies anyways.

    All I can think of when I see videos about pokemon go is the south park episode where they are brainwashed to destroy the evil power.
