    Does the game support using your cock as a pool cue?

    I dunno. I'm 35, so maybe that makes me old. Also, it's not just a technology thing. How about when adults went nuts collecting beanie babies, or the new adult coloring book fad? They are stupid wastes of time. Do something to sharpen your mind or skillset if you have so much free time. Learn another language, learn to play an instrument, take a cooking class, learn to homebrew, etc.

    Granted, this is just my stupid opinion. In reality, I think everyone should do what he/she likes, but I get to say it's stupid.

    Praise be to Battery Jesus the Yellow Based God. May his lightning smite down the Red and Blue heretics forever more.

    Honestly my favorite shit about this game is how salty people are who DON'T like this game. Get over yourselves. Let people have fun.

    You don't do anything that waste time ever? Watch tv, look at facebook, etc. You can have more than one hobby or thing going on.

    Evidently Bell's is running a promo on Thursday where employees will be activating lures for both stops at the brewery all night from 6pm to midnight. Genius.

    it's one thing if the average pokemon hater is actually someone who spends all their free time enriching themselves at museums, learning languages, and becoming more educated and worldly. I would say that person might be a bit of a curmudgeon, but they're probably better off for their behavior. taking a break from sharing cat videos on facebook to say my phone game is sooooo immature is a bit eyeroll.

    it's not quite comparable to beanie babies, because that was a stupid frenzy involving lighting money on fire. that was ACTUALLY stupid.

    also

    I was at the cigar bar downtown drinking beer and playing. Old dudes and owner were bitching about everyone being on the square. Literally 50 people down there on a monday afternoon. Mother fucker, there is never that many people down there. Get out there and sell them shit. you should be praising the game for getting people out.

    I swear baby boomers are functionally ridiculous.

    You guys are totally right, old people just hate technology. That's why I'm wasting time on an internet forum, posting from an iPhone.

    I will say there have been at least a dozen businesses in my Twitter feed promoting themselves as stops/gyms in the past day alone.

    Of course I do. I just tend to shy away from watching the Disney Channel, listening to One Direction, and other hobbies aimed at 12 year olds.

    Like I said, I'm actually glad people are enjoying it and going outside. I just reserve the right to hate on it for being ridiculous. I see it the same way as grown men obsessing over My Little Pony. Go for it, though. The world don't move to the beat of just one drum.

    EDIT: Maybe I just don't get the draw of nostalgia since I was about 5 years too old to give a shit about Pokémon when they came out.

    Congratulations on mastering a keyboard and a web browser, gramps.

    Well, swiping and tapping isn't exactly a "mastering of technology". How did "tech savvy" become a phrase applied to people who stare at a screen? Was someone who drooled all day watching TV on a state-of-the-art set "tech savvy" in the 80s?

    Now, has anyone hooked up with this app yet?

    Old people are just mad that when we are old we are going to have augmented reality wifus and legal weed.

    If 3/4 of my life was over in a time where I can stream porno in 4k for free to my 6 inch pocket computer, I'd be pissed too.

    A 6" screen going to provide adequate visual impact @ 4k? Held from what distance?

    I'd recommend using a screen size that will produce the "actress" life size, and sit the recommended distance from that screen for a given resolution.
