Pokemon Go (Nooooooooooo)

Are you Pokémon Go or like me Pokémon Nooooooo? Pokémon is worth $56 Billion to Nintendo right now and that will only increase with this latest craze.  Essentially it's an App on your mobile that uses your phones camera and google maps to place 'Real' Pokémon amongst your surroundings.  For example there may be Pokémon type creatures on the North Wootton 3, on the sea front in Hunstanton, by the clock in Downham Market or even in the centre of King's Lynn, who knows possibly in KL.FM Studio 1 (see above).  It's your job to catch them and collect them or something?  To be honest I did download the game yesterday evening, I did chase a strange creature around the front room and garden for about 2 minutes, but after capturing it I promptly deleted the game and went back to my glass of wine

It didn't grab me but I can I see how it can become addictive and also very dangerous.  I for one have already seen people walking in the middle of the road chasing whatever it is you chase causing traffic to brake abruptly.  Then there’s the other risks of anyone paying for these virtual creatures to be at their business or property, who knows what problems this may cause, I think parents should be very wary of this app, as enjoyable to those that use as it may be.

Do I sound like an old man?  (-:
