100% sure when I go back to school this year I'll be both that "old guy" and the "doesn't like Pokemon guy"

Majority of the hype is due to the game having only the first generation of Pokemon available. That's nostalgia for many twenty-somethings. There's literally nothing else to the game besides chasing these nostalgic creatures around and some button bashing to take over so-called Gyms.

The hype will die... unless MAJOR updates.

What's with all these lounges anyhow? People lounge around cycling, for heaven's sake. Lollygagging on sofas smoking cigars and making their little pedal thingies go round and round. Complaint lounge I can see, though.

Oh don't the days seem lank and long
when all goes right and nothing goes wrong?
And isn't your life extremely flat
with nothing whatever to grumble at?

here's the ticket - just find someone even OLDER than you and hang out with him/her to make yourself look younger - oh, and maybe dress like a skater. Better yet, carry a long board everywhere you go while saying "GAAP the shit out of that concave" and "carve it with accelerated depreciation man"

You want to complain? Look at these shoes! I've only had them three weeks, and the heels are worn right through. If you complain, nothing happens, so you might as well not bother.

I'm aware of that but I meant feature-wise. :P

The twenty-somethings mostly don't care about the newer Pokemon and those who do care will eventually get bored by the repetitiveness of the "game", it's hardly even a game at this point... there's nothing to do!

If only there were features like raising your monster Tamagotchi-style or having battles that involve actual strategic thinking or stuff like that. Anything, really! A trillion new Pokemon won't make up for the lack of features.

Like a car game with 1000 cars but only 1 circuit to race them on.

I still don't like 32 degrees though :P and someone we know is in London at the moment and was complaining yesterday about 32/33 degree weather. I explained to my friends that over there 32 degrees may as well be 50. I remember just dying over there during the 'heatwave'. I assume it's probably similar in other European countries coz everything is designed to keep heat in.

Anyway, I was bored last night and straightened my hair for the first time in like 10 months. I just got up and it's pouring down outside :'( I don't have a raincoat or umbrella so bye hair

Well, isn't that too damn hot. B)
