    Wish I had more talks with my uncles. I’m busy, they’re busy… that sort of thing.

    How did Max get to swing on that branch?

    We climbed trees growing up. More kids need to do that instead of stupid Pokemongo. And the parents need to stop from stopping kids climbing up trees- within reason of course. And yes, sometimes we fell out of them. No broken bones happened. Lots of fun and good memories.

    Huh, what do you have against pokemon go? I think it’s great. It gets kids (and adults too) outside, gives them something to talk about and something fun to do. They can explore the neighborhood, hunt something without stressing or harming actual animals and get some exercise on top of it. What’s wrong with that?

    I’m really going to miss the “You gotta love August” strips!

    A lot of people are getting hurt because they are too busy play the game and not paying attention. There have been car accidents and people trespassing on private property. One 15 year old boy was shot when he was looking into a woman’s windows at 2 am because she thought he was an intruder breaking into her home.

    Well… walking into traffic comes to mind… not looking at the real world as they wander into dangerous places is never a good thing.

    Not me since August is not a wonderful month to anyone who doesn’t live in the Pacific Northwest. It’s the worst of the the summer months, high heat and humidity, flies and other disagreeable things. Now “You gotta love June” would have made much more sense for 90 % of the country.

    Because they walk into traffic and off of cliffs while staring at their phones.

    Ok, look at it this way. 9.5 million people a day are playing pokemon go in the USA alone. Now think about 9.5 million people a day climbing a tree (as Jen suggested) or just normally playing outside, running around, playing ball etc. Do you honestly think there are any less accidents from those activities? Nope, there sure aren’t. Stray balls cause people to run into the street or trespassing on private property every day. The only difference is A) Pokemon Go is new enough that accident caused by the game are still newsworthy and B) people who normally would stay inside and play games are going outside and do something. That’s a good thing in my book, no matter how you look at it.
