    Apparently Pokemon are more important than life itself. We have seen people stop in the middle of traffic, step off the side of a cliff, and now waltz through a RADIATION ZONE just to snag a couple of Pokemon. This game is becoming as life altering as Flappy Bird. The Fukushima Radiation Zone is a place where a nuclear meltdown occurred which spilled radio active waste all around the surrounding areas. It seems that enough dummies crossed the fence there that TEPCO had to issue an official warning to Pokemon trainers attempting to hit up pokestops inside the area.

    TEPCO has even requested that this radiation zone be removed from the game which is actually not a bad idea. Some of you have argued here that Pokemon Go could be a good tool for removing idiots from the population. I wouldn't go that far. Is it our responsibility to remain safe while playing a game or should Niantic scour the globe for "unsafe" places and remove them from their global map?

    I work on an army base and there are no pokemon or pokestops anywhere near us or on the surrounding roads owned by the army. The commanding general also issued an order saying no soldiers are to be playing while on duty or at anytime while in uniform whether on or off base. I'm guessing he's not a fan? LOL

    You imply death, but what about the other option? What if instead, these people develop Pokemon like superpowers from walking through the radiation? Then they will be naturally selecting us...with lightning from their hands, or fire pouring out of their mouths.

    I will, it is called gene pool cleansing and we are in dire need of it.
    I'm also in favor of removing all safety labels and letting the problem of stupidity solve itself. Rollingonfloorlaughing.gif
