    I'm surprised it hasn't happened already.

    Just a bit of chlorine in the gene pool. (Assuming it's someone who is chronologically an adult)

    I haven't played this thing, but a bartender friend of mine said that there are Pokestops at most of the bars she works at, plus a couple of them have something called lure modules, and she is pretty happy about it not because she plays the game but because she has been making fat stacks of ca$h this week from the massive uptick in nerd traffic.

    So... How long until businesses pay to sponsor rare shit in their location? This thing is brilliant (not like "oh woah this is so fun", like holy shit these fuckers are going to rake)

    Yeah, one day of this was enough. Now that I know what's going on inside the virtual world, I'm finding it way too entertaining to watch everyone else playing the game to continue playing it myself. The app has officially been deleted. I'm not sure about anywhere else, but around here I've seen almost as many adults as kids walking around doing this thing - married couples, normal looking contributing members of society, etc.

    As I mentioned, there's a park just a short walk from my house with three PokeStops and a gym. It was a madhouse down there even late into the night last night, so there should be no shortage of entertainment for the time being.

    The men's restroom at our local park is a pokegym. This won't end poorly. Not a chance.

    That was probably going on before the game came out.

    I'm able to hit 20-25 stops each way on my way to/from work pretty much without changing my commute at all. Also, the shuttle bus between my house and the train station, as well as part of the train ride itself, are slow enough to count towards distance towards hatching eggs. On day 2 and still really enjoying it.

    not sure if I am late to the party but if your Pokeball misses just click on it before it disappears and you get it back.
