#Fail: Pokemon Go Players Cross Canada/US Border To Catch Them All

I truly don’t get the appeal of Pokemon go. Seeing as people of all ages are playing it, it’s clearly not because I’m in my mid 40’s. What doesn’t help me understand this is a story like this one where two players of the popular game accidentally crossed the US/Canada border in an attempt to capture a Pokemon:

The two, who were not identified, were walking southbound from Alberta into Montana, their attention fixed to their phones as they hunted cartoon characters, when they were found by US border patrol agents on Thursday.

“Both juveniles were so captivated by their Pokémon Go games that they lost track of where they were,” said Michael Rappold, a spokesman for the agency. Agents saw that the teens were not aware they had crossed the border, he said.

“They crossed the international border inadvertently, but agents were able to reunite them with their mother.”

Really? I really think that this is starting to get out of hand when stuff like this happens. Clearly this whole craze needs a rethink in my opinion.
