Gotta catch 'em all

Talk about your non-consensual PvP…

The new augmented reality Pokémon game has distributed pokemon and gyms across the real world map and kids are suddenly leaving their homes to search for them.

Needless to say children are wandering into strange places, getting attacked, and having their smartphones stolen.

The nearest pokemon to my home is at a location where I've previously seen homeless people having uncovered sex outdoors.

The nearest pokemon "gym" is a liquor store covered in White Fence gang graffiti. Apparently, the devs expect kids to sit on the floor in a liquor store doing pokemon battles on their smartphones to become the gym owner?

What could possibly go wrong?

Perhaps parents who use smartphones to replace childcare will self-educate about why that's a bad idea.

I just hope they figure it out from the media rather than learning from a predator.

+1 Decius. It's deplorably how many of today's parents rely on devices to babysit their children. Or worse yet, allow devices to distract themselves from their own parental responsibilities. We had a case In Florida where a mother 'forgot' to remove her young child from a hot car because she was distracted by her cell phone. Some people shouldn't be allowed to breed.

It's bad enough people walking in front of cars while texting on cell phones.

I have to believe Darwinism will quickly and ruthlessly weed out the people that have issues with those devices and situational awareness.

Natural selection is quick and ruthless and doesn't care whether you think a trait is prosurvival or not. Or even whether it will be prosurvival tomorrow.
