For the past week, fully grown humans have been chasing fictional creatures in pursuit of I Don't Know What on a game called Pokémon GO. Quite frankly, it's madness.

Though millions are playing the game, there is a large, but silent, majority that have not. In that group, profound questions are being asked: have people gone mad? Is this the end of the world as we know it? What the f*ck is a Pokémon gym?  

So we are less alone, this post is in honour of all those that don't have a clue what's going on. Stay strong, comrades, it will all be over soon.

 

1. Literally, what the eff is happening?
