    I was at a local shopping center this morning and had some Pokmon pop up around me while driving through the parking lot. Had to resist the urge to stop where I was, so I got out and walked. Others popped up, so I imagined driving around the [mostly empty] lot picking them up. Since it's a parking lot, it would be busy later when the rest of the stores open, so you definitely need to be aware of your surroundings when searching for and capturing them.

    Also be careful when you go out -- I've read some are available at night, but with that said don't go to a park in the middle of the night by yourself (many are closed at dusk anyway). Just use some common sense and have fun.

    Anyone have any near misses? Other tips for being safe while playing Pokmon Go?

    Sometimes I want to drop a Golem or the Princess on some of my co-workers! Or send a Hog Rider! (Clash of Clans and Clash Royale fans will catch the reference)

    Just about any app will do it though. Facebook, Snapchat, etc. People have walked into traffic before last week

    I'm just not playing. Seems silly and dangerous.

    My daughter tried to run outside in a thunderstorm last night to go to a Pokestop. SMH.

    Can I wax nostalgic again? Remember when we used to do it with our BlackBerry?

    Maybe we need a pokemon go helmet?

    One of my friends just posted on FB that she saw a kid get out of his car - staring at his phone - trip over a curb and fall on his face ... All to catch a Pokemon.

    And that's mild compared to some reports I've heard.
