Bad news, it's bad. But can it be good? Let's go to our panel of experts.

A thread for all Bad News Gone RightTM. News that's weird, wonderful or ironic (Alanis-style).
apologies for the spotlit video

let me know if the thread title is confusing

A Pokémon GO player in Oregon was stabbed and turned down medical treatment so that he could keep playing.
Early Monday morning, Baker was walking near 19th and Filbert in Forest Grove to catch as many Pokémon as possible when he saw another man, possibly playing the same game.

"I saw him go by and asked if he was playing Pokémon Go. He was like 'what?' I guess he wanted to battle because he came up at me with a knife," said Baker.

Baker said he didn't go to the hospital because he still wanted to hunt for Pokémon and other things.

"Right after I was stabbed, I continued my mission to Plaid Pantry for my mission for chips and beer," said Baker.

    Florida Woman turns house into drive-thru with the power of prayer:
    When most of us think about the danger of driving while interacting with invisible beings, we’re most likely to blame Pokemon Go. That’s not the case with this 28-year-old Floridian, who was praying to an invisible being named Jesus with her eyes closed. While driving. She hit a house.

    The wreck happened on the morning of July 7, in the matronly-named city of Mary Esther, Florida. The woman ran a stop sign and kept driving until she hit a house with her Taurus. She tried to back out, but the car was too stuck in the sandy soil.

    Luckily, nobody was hurt, in either the car or the house.

    I do love that this was posted to "Jesus Take The Wheel".

    I have a feeling this thread is going to be about 50% Pokemon Go related stories, because that seems to be an instant unending fountain of hilariously awful things.

    My cousin reminded me today of something, I may be a prophet.

    Way way back in the day, when I was approximately 1-2 hours into pokemon red, I looked up at him and said " This will be the death of us all someday"

    The main bar by work has 2 pokestops , and another 3 that you can get from inside it. 3 other bars within a block or two have a pokestop as well.

    Actually, thinking about this, there could be a massive impact on student's grades because of this. Think of that semester WoW destroyed in college, but now imagine the point was playing it everywhere you went.

    I wonder if there's a way to create pokemon-free areas, like school buildings or especially classrooms.

    Or the random people congregating on the playground during school hours cause it's a pokestop or gym.

    Utah is tired of drones getting in the way of putting out wildfires. They will take them out the humane way of jamming them since actually shooting them down would be a pain.

    I walked to the local Subway last night while pokingmans going and when I got in, some police followed me and said another guy outside just had his phone grabbed out of his hand and were hoping to pull security tapes.

    of course all the cameras were fake and not powered.

    Honestly I would be comfortable with more than a 15 year maximum sentence for a drone pilot who causes a firefighting aircraft to crash during a wildfire.

    yea my wife had a patient that went manic/psychotic , started driving all over Alberta because the lord told him to. Then as he was getting tired "Jesus" said its ok I got this take a nap. So he did. Truck went off road flipped in the ditch total write off, luckily he was sleeping and his body wasn't stiff so he walked away. Stay on your meds don't go off them because you "feel better" it doesn't work that way.

    This is probably bad news in the strictest sense.
    The #1 in the Tour de France (Chris Froome) crashed into a camera motor (that probably stopped because of a fan not getting out of the way)
    His bike was broken.
    This was his solution:



    I rarely laughed so loudly at a live sporting event.

    The jury is still deliberating how to handle it.

    The courses are incredibly long and people line up all along it, it would be sort of impossible to create a buffer along the entire course. The spectators have to take some responsibility for not getting in the way, and occasionally they fail.

    Maybe the tour de france can put up an AR barricade along the race track to keep the spectators out of the way. Hell if you download a tour de france app maybe it could call you if you cross over the line and ask you to step back.

    It's really a sport centered around monumental willpower.

    The navigator has to have the willpower to not look up and 100% trust in the driver and cars ability to handle the course. The driver has to have the willpower to trust that the fans will get out of the way, that the Navigator is correct, and that the car can do what it needs to do.

    The fans... They are just plain ol' crazy.
