One of my co-workers here at the office is a very dedicated walker. Her favorite place to walk is a cemetery near her home. She likes walking there, well because there is no traffic and excuse the pun, quiet as a graveyard. A few days ago she came to work concerned that her favorite walking spot was becoming a hot bed for criminal activity. She described an unusual amount of car and foot traffic. Did a dealer just move into the neighborhood? A neighbor decided with all the new night time activity he was going to report it to the local authorities.
Come to find out a couple of days later, they did find out what all the new traffic was about, a new dealer of sorts did move into the cemetery…of the Pikachu kind, that is.
The game is taking its players to new locations, and let’s face it if you're running around at night in a cemetery trying to catch your Pumpkaboo or Haunter “ghost Pokémon” (I hear ghosts are the rarer of Pokémon) there are a lot of low-lying obstacles to get hurt on. Or even worse yet, heavens forbid, you end up an occupant of a cemetery, like the teenager who was shot while playing his Pokémon Go.
Also, now that the game has been around for a couple more weeks, report after report of cars running off the road and/or hitting other vehicles. (Don't forget your designated driver)
I wonder if anyone has made the defense blaming Pikachu yet? Pokémon made me do it... (break into your house, hit your car, etc.) Would something like that stand in court? I’m sure there will be those who try….
Now for Dead Cow News… more news at a later date...
(Squirtle made me forget it.)
