    Pokemon. Those cute little monsters who live in handheld balls inside your pants. But enough about poorly-worded innuendos. Did anyone play the Pokemon games when they were younger, like I did? I remember spending a lot of my life trying to "Catch 'em All" -- which, by the way, is gonna be virtually impossible as long as they keep creating 100+ new Pokemon for every new game, but I think that's their plan.

    Anyway, here's a couple of videos to hopefully give you a laugh, as long as we're on the subject. The first is a great parody of the TV show's original theme song, and the second is one of my own videos, as my "Murdoch" character. Yeah, have I mentioned I'm an aspiring actor, and therefore play different characters in a lot of my YouTube videos? Probably important. But I digress.

    Robbers Target Players of Pokemon Go Game
    Jul 11, 2016 -- A new smartphone game takes people out into the real world to collect cute creatures, but sometimes the real world can be a dangerous place. That’s what some players found out after four teens apparently staked out specific spots they knew would draw players of the popular Pokemon Go game, then robbed them, O’Fallon police say.

    People need to get a life...interact.
    Live in a college town...20 years ago students would be out on the lawns and parks all over campus..playing pickup basketball, volleyball, frisbee...or just hanging out under a shade tree.
    Today...the parks are mostly empty, a few people playing pick up games...but the lion share are walking around with a cell phone stuck in their face with earbuds in.
    It is amazing to drive by campus and literally every student you see is looking at a cell phone.
    We have an entire generation of socially retarded people.

    My neighbors on the Neighborhood Watch team have been witnessing strange people at all hours of the night doing this Pokeeman thing. There is a concern from a neighborhood watch perspective. Don't these Pokeeman morons have anything better to do ?!

    What you've described can be observed anywhere these days and not just among college-aged folks. Noses in phones/tablets is a paradigm shift in human behavior, and not a good one IMO.

    Absolutely. Try doing business with millennials.
    No kidding, last year I flew to Colorado, and 1 whole hour of the gathering was dedicated training to deal with millennials.
    VERY hard to deal with.

    That's a good idea!...so if you need to do business with a millennial, you can appear as a character in a video game...and conduct the transaction in virtual reality...that way they don't have to actually talk to you. Much more comfortable, and familiar for them to do business with your avatar.
    You should get a patent.
