Pokemon Go – The New Devil In Town
Right when you thought driving and texting wasn’t bad enough, along comes the king of distractions, Pokemon Go. Now I can talk about this because I have done it and realized the extreme distraction that it can cause. I literally almost took out someone while driving and realized, “crap, now I’m that guy!” But I did get Pikachu!
I am old enough and wise enough to realize what a bad idea this was so I made sure to put the phone away while driving. Yes, they warn you on the game every time you log on, but common, like people read……uh hum…..:-)
I have a few friends that rave over this game (which is why I tried it to begin with) and I just don’t see the point honestly. I’m not making money because of it, if I’m not careful I could kill someone or be killed, I mean, what is the draw? Will this better your life? Will you achieve your goals in life while playing this game? If you do, then I don’t want to know your goals!
Now if you are in jail and have nothing to do and happen to have a phone and a charger then have at it. Actually, maybe you should consider breaking you phone and getting a book from the library, it would do you more good. Harsh I know, but maybe I just have different goals in life. I suppose if it makes you happy then by all means go collect some Pokemon. Just please don’t be stupid and drive while playing this or please don’t be like the kids in California who walked off a 60 foot ledge of a cliff collecting Pokemon. Is a game worth your life? Let me help you….NO!!!!!!!!
Ok, my rant is over. All this talk makes me want to go play some Pokemon 😉
On a serious note, please be responsible when you play. Your life is one thing, but to take another’s life because of a game is just dumb so don’t drink and drive, do drugs and drive, or play Pokemon and drive. Ok, or masterbate and drive…..Maybe have sex and drive as well, I did that once and it was a good but bad idea. I could have killed someone while cumming! How would those headlines read? Man kills couple while cumming…..lol.
