Just curious. Who all here plays Pokemon Go? I'm noticing a disturbingly large number of reports of sheep-like behavior.

I request a "Meh" or "Who f*$#ing cares" option so I can vote accordingly. Thanks!

I was going to add a "Meh, and I like DA-only guns" option, but it won't let me anymore. :P

This thread is an attempt on W's part to gain positive reaffirmation from us to use Pokeman Go.

Go ahead W, use it. It has all the answers in life that you're seeking.

No, because I'm an adult and have seen a vagina.

Oh my god...that labradoodle...

I have tried this. I found one in my bedroom. After that my interest fainted gradually by the program failing to deliver.

Guys, no need to pretend. You all have my permission to use it and not made fun of if you've used it.

That's the funny part, I actually did find one there. I had to stretch my arm over the bed to find it.

...and the app/program is not up to par with my phone at least. I tried it. Did not really like it so far.

I don't have a problem with someone playing the game. But if you're the type that mindlessly walks into the street following your phone, you deserve to be plastered onto the front of a metro bus.

It's mindless fun. Could be used while waiting and your Glock is on repair? And, yes, it requires some intelligence, planning and vigorously so. The need to level up, yo!

1. These things are extremely hard to break.
2. I work on my own guns.

I enjoy reading about idiots maiming themselves or dying while playing, does that count?

You know, I installed it, played about a total of 10 minutes of it, and just uninstalled it. I really don't get it.

You're just jelly you're not John Hanke.

If I can ever surrender my conscience, maybe I'll write the next app addicted by tweens+ types. One thing about fads, they come and they go, but there's always folks who profit heavily. Joke's on us, especially if it's your daughter, Chuck.

That should provide me with enough startup capital for the next end-all-be-all addictive 'social' media hype web site! Both will of course be absorbed by several large corporate giants.

Then I can finally retreat to my island.

For anyone who thinks Pokemon:GO is strange, like me, keep in mind there are websites like Chicken Smoothie along with the addictions of other cultures some have shared here that may seem baffling to the rest of us. Remember the little virtual pet devices sold from Asia that were all the rage before the smartphone era?

GO Pokemon players GO. Go forth and be speed bumps in thy road of life. :twisted:
