If you're like me, you've gone out for an unwarranted walk to catch 'em all. Risking body, bone, and paycheck; with all worries to the wind because Dragonite might be cruising in on the next gust.

You dig up an excuse to go catch that impossible Golem, only to find out it's at least 1,000 miles away because the navigation was feeling like glitching out for a hot sec.



Then you head back out, brave the proud lone highway because there was a damn fiesta of Magikarps round the corner...and the only dude that actually has a Gyarados, also owes his mom about 7K in a combined purse of Honey BBQ Fritos, and that unfortunately not-extinct Mountain Dew Code Red.

BUT, then when you made the trek the server crashed, because why not inconvenience?

What are your worst stories when you made the journey, only to realize it was futile all along? 

In less than a month Pokémon GO! has taken this planet by storm. Look around you, and you're apt to see someone with a fixed gaze on their phones, swiping upwards aggressively, scowling at their screens, trying to catch 'em all.

It's insane how big this game is. Pokémon GO! is more popular than Tinder right now, and was more popular than porn for a brief bit of time as well. Plus Pokémon GO! is tracking more than 21 million daily active users, so that's pretty damn chill...

Two things that really got me going here: One, it's almost like he thought by showing the police he was playing Pokémon GO! that he thought it'd be all chill after. Second, I'm pretty sure he was still trying to catch whatever it was that got him in the accident, after being confronted by the cops for CRASHING into a cop car! Sheesh, man. Come on.

A recent data mine of Pokémon GO!'s coding revealed a picture of the iconic, Master Ball.

Before we all get too excited, you've gotta wonder whether there'll be any downsides to the Master Ball in this game? -- will an errant curveball toss end up wasting the Master Ball altogether? I guess we better take a page out this dude's book, and opt for the safest, most surefire way to achieve success, and catch 'em all...
