Idiot.

I'm proudly adding "playing pokemon go" to my list of "dumb pop culture shit I've never taken part in.

No dumber than any other mobile game. At least it's getting kids out of the house and if they walk into traffic, natural selection does it's thing.

But have I played it? Not a fuckin' chance.

Nope. But I see the appeal.

A guy at work told me he knows for sure it's possible to capture a pokemon while driving 45 mph on city streets.

He seemed a little offended when I told him that I hoped he only killed himself eventually, and not some group of playing kids.

A little. I grew up with Pokemon and loved it for a time, but the app wastes a lot of data though and I am not tethered to my phone like every other person my age.

Fine, I'll be the honest one and say I'm playing it. I'm not running around my neighborhood (or anywhere really), but I'm playing. Like SpartyNash, it's something I grew up with. It helps that I work in a 40 acre building and spend most of my day moving from meeting to meeting. I get a couple minutes between meetings, and it's as good a way to use that time as anything else on my phone.

It's not a whole lot of game right now. Flick up, move, flick up again. Since I don't have time (babies) to play at home, I don't know what the rest of the game is supposed to be like.

I don't watch much television. The other sites I read on the Internet are limited to Baseball Reference, MLB, and Fangraphs. And work-related industry sites. Not much of a fan of popular culture.

I hear ya. going back to the early 90's, being able to thumb my nose at the crap other kids were watching/listening to provided more satisfaction to me than I'd get from watching/listening to that same crap & belonging to the herd.

the earliest memory I have of this sort was shunning "New kids on the block."
