Hi folks, Bob here. Last night I was at Partridge Creek with my wife and some friends and I got a text from another friend who said he was at the Mall and noticed “90%” were playing “Pokemon Go”. I decided to observe people to see for myself and, I have to tell you....it creeped me out. Folks, I'm telling you, it was easily 80-90% of every single person I saw walking Partridge Creek was playing this game. Now logically, I'm sure some people were just reading a text or doing something else other than Pokemon Go, but I must assume the overwhelming majority of them were playing Pokemon Go. Why? Because I've never once seen 90 some percent of people simultaneously staring at their phones in a zombie like trance for such an extended period of time. It just seems to me that something isn't right about this “Pokemon Go” phenomenon.
I guess my spiritual warning flags go up when I see such a hugely disproportionate chunk of society have such an all consuming obsession with something, let alone something like “Pokemon”, which I had spiritual problems with back when the cards came out over 10 years ago. You also have people being recklessly unaware of their surroundings, walking into busy streets, getting into auto accidents.....there was even a news story about how police had to rescue two men who actually walked off a cliff.
Anyway, something is just not right about this Pokemon Go obsession. At least that's my opinion. ... See MoreSee Less
