People here are using the game to lure people for robbery. A nice quiet parking lot with bad guys waiting for them. So fat once a shift at work, I have to shoo customers trying to pretend catch an imaginary thingamajig from employee only areas, like the kitchen or by the registers. It's a nice thought. Anything that encourages powwow to be more active isn't an inherently bad thing. But please, everyone, pay attention to your surroundings as you play.

I'll stop eating beef lamb and pork the same day they start letting me eat vegetarians.

The game has been published in Finland too now. My wife's phone wasn't able to run it though (The OS is too old) so she has been running around with a tablet and considering updating to a newer phone.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

These servers seem to crash once a day or so... It's like, making my way down town, walking fast, eggs just hatched, and the game's down :-/

That's not much. My wife said the game crashes like 50% of the time when she is about to catch a Pokemon and it crashed when I tried to turn it on.

There was a recent DDoS attack, and the servers are wildly unstable with such high volume, as well.

I haven't played yet. I kinda want to, but then it means going outside in this painful heat. It is funny to see loads more people playing outside, though.
Guys, this is getting creepy. Can we talk about cannibalism instead?

To be fair, they recently suffered a DDoS.

Someone told a story (I think on tumblr) about how their dad's colleague, a park ranger, was using lures to attract people into the park after hours so he could write up tickets.

That should be a meme.

What a dick.

Huh, that guy sounds pretty liberal but that's the kind of angry "stupid newfangled technology" type of rhetoric I'd expect from a grouchy old conservative.

Just got back from a pokemon go walk and had a morning of epic proportions.

1. Hatched a 550 CP Drowzee, which gave me enough candies to evolve it into an 1100 CP Hypno
2. Caught my first Meowth
3. Took over 8 gyms, held onto 6 long enough to cash in for 60 pokecoin and 3000 stardust
4. Caught a 500 CP Eevee that will evolve into a nice Flareon, Jolteon, or Vaporeon
5. Encountered and caught a Charmander
6. Hatched two slowpoke, one was 675 CP. They gave me enough candies to evolve the 675 CP Slowpoke into a 1500 CP Slowbro
7. Caught a 670 CP Growlithe, currently 13 candies away from it becoming an Arcanine

So, right now on my quest, I am level 21. I have a 1500 CP Slowbrow, a 1125 CP Vaporeon, an 1100 CP Hypno, an 1050 CP Flareon, a 1040 CP Lapras, a 1020 CP Jolteon, a 975 CP Pidgeot, and two 925 CP Jolteon. Behind that are two 825 CP Venomoth, an 825 CP Butterfree, and a 650 CP Beedrill

A couple days ago, I caught a 1500 CP exeggutor with Zen Headbutt and Solarbeam and evolved a 1520 CP Vaporeon.

Read "Zen Headbutt" as "Zen Halibut" and thought you'd caught TotalBiscuit.
