Why does everyone start in the bathroom?
Over the weekend the world officially turned upside down when Nintendo released their new Pokemon Go smartphone app — a game that places virtual Pokemon characters into real life, motivating the players get out of their sunken-in couches and head to the great outdoors to catch 'em all.
And though there are tons of worries about the lengths people will go to find and catch these (fake) characters, admittedly plenty of the population — including senior citizens, parents and 8-year-olds — have already downloaded the game to see what all the hype is about.
With the oodles of people suddenly walking around with their faces buried into their phones (OK, maybe that's nothing new), some have started posting their adventures on social media. And they are ridiculously hilarious.
Here are 20 of our favorite places people have found their Pokemon characters, ranging from funny to CRAZY dangerous.
