How 'Pokemon Go' went from prank to phenomenon
#1
The origin of "Pokemon Go" is as peculiar as any of the Voltorbs or Snorlaxes that players track and capture in the surprise hit game.

Its hybrid DNA flows from a digital mapping pioneer's fascination with the world around him, Google's affinity for offbeat ideas, Nintendo's comeback quest and a 20-year-old menagerie of animated monsters so popular that it spawned a company just to be its talent agency.

Then all it took was a prank to hatch a mobile video game that has turned into a cultural phenomenon.

I pinned this earlier because I wanted to hear everyone's opinion about how stupid this game is. 

People are walking and driving all over town with their phones in their faces looking for these things. 
Most of them are not even paying attention to their surroundings. 
Now whenever I go somewhere I have to keep my eye peeled looking for these morons so I don't crash into one of them.  Smileyfud

My brothers wife was playing this NON STOP...I blocked her FB feed, until she chilled, on all the multidude of Pokemon posts, ............finally she tired of it, mainly because her kids kicked her off their team, so I unblocked her........she is 49 !!!!!!  wtf, .......maybe a bit too much spare time???

I read something about this a week or so ago. Have been staying away of the Pokemon stuff. I gave some.vintage cards unopened to my nephew. They came from a vendor my gal worked with who also printed out the cards. The were in box with some of my baseball cards from when I was a kid. (No $$$ value....we traded those around as kids....far from in good shape. Sentimental) Anyway, I put the odds on my boxer and Rhodesian Ridgeback over a Picachu or however it is "spelt" any day of the week.
