An interesting blurb in TIME magazine last week:
It stated that only 61% of millennials could correctly identify who VP Joe Biden is, but 98% could correctly identify Pikachu from Pokemon.
I’m sure Pikachu will soon be running for office somewhere!
Early July 18th in Baltimore, a Pokémon Go player drove his car into a parked police car while playing the game on his phone. Luckily the police were not in their car during this time, but one was wearing a body-camera and was able to record the incident. No one was hurt, but this wasn’t the first Pokémon Go accident in Baltimore. Multiple players have had their phones stolen while playing. Baltimore Police spokesman T.J. Smith says, “Way too many people have their heads buried in their phones while trying to catch a Pokémon, and the criminals are catching them.” Baltimore isn’t the only place affected by Pokémon Go Players. A player in Clarksboro, New Jersey had to call 911 when she got stuck in a tree while trying to catch a Pokémon. Firefighters typically rescue cats from trees, not people. A group in Bosnia are worried that players may accidentally stubble upon areas with unexploded landmines from the 1992-1995 war. Pokémon Go is beginning to get dangerous, but that’s not stopping the players from catching them all.
