Your legs are in great shape, ed you found a new road to your house, the servers crashed, you lost all your Gyms and Pokéstops (hang in there, fellow Bangaloreans!) crossed state borders and probably found yourself in the middle of the sea! But that doesn’t matter, you gotta catch ‘em all and be the very best!

Pokémon Go has had people hooked since its launch. The addicting game has made players trek around their neighbourhoods. Some have ventured into local police stations, and there have been some cases of people slamming into poles and windows! But it did not stop there. Here’s a list of some of the craziest things that have happened to Pokémon Go players.  

When things took a ghastly turn!

When you fall into a pool

 

Stay aware of your surroundings? Who has time for that when a Pokémon is around! While live streaming his progress and walking towards a lure, he fell into a pond!

 

 

When a small town turned into a holy site

 

Pokémon Go is not officially out in South Korea, and it is unclear if it will ever be released since the country is technically still at war with North Korea. Google maps, whose data the game makes use of, is restricted in most parts of the country to protect the location data of its military bases. But that hasn’t stopped people from playing the game. The small town of Sokcho barely makes it out from the list of protected areas, and it happens to be the only location the game can be played at. And the sleepy city found itself bombarded with tourists and currently, tickets from Seoul to Sokcho are sold out. The city has braced itself with increased free Wi-Fi hotspots and battery charging stations! Way to go Sokcho!

When your legs don’t feel like they used to before

 

If you’re tired of walking around in circles and cannot possibly walk 5 kilometres, but desperately want to hatch that egg, this man has a solution! He had his phone tied to a ceiling fan, and it did not stop there! He went onto sticking his phone to a bicycle tire and had it spin till his egg hatched!

 

And it wasn't just him.

 

 

When world leaders join in

 

Seems like even the President of Israel couldn't resist the game’s charm!

When Japan practically wins at everything

 

Count on the Japanese to make life easier with their funky inventions. A slouched back, increased accidents and a decreased field of vision has led these guys to invent a quick and easy solution. Behold, the Poké Han.

When you find yourself in the middle of the sea

 

Two women from Wellington, New Zealand kayaked their way to the middle of the ocean to claim a Pokémon gym! They found the unclaimed gym and quickly decided to kayak their way out to the Oriental Bay and claim it! You know things are getting crazy when two women end up in the middle of the ocean staring into their phones!

Proving yourself and getting your picture hung up as the “Employee of The Month” at your new job can be quite a tantalising task. There’s competition at every corner and the seemingly impossible amount of work to be done, stuff yet the heart wants what it wants! The good news is, patient accomplishing that goal of yours is not that difficult if you work smarter and use your computer better. Here’s a list of 5 smart things you could begin with to reach the glorious destination you crave so much.

GRAMMAR OR GRAMMER? THERE’S AN APP FOR THAT

If you know the difference between you’re and your, its and it’s, there and their and so many more words, you, my friend, are doing everything right. There’s nothing that screams “professional” more than a perfectly scripted e-mail or a report that embraces grammar accurately. One way to help you on that is using Grammarly, an add-on that corrects your grammar, typographic errors, punctuation, sentence structure and much more.

SLOW AND STEADY WINS THE RACE? THINK AGAIN

Completing your tasks faster and saving time is a big bonus to achieving that “pro” status. Save time by typing fast, learn shortcut keys and use macros. Macros lets you save time by performing repetitive tasks just by a click, in Word, Excel and other Office files. Use fun websites such as TypeRacer to improve your typing speed and soon enough, you’ll be a ninja typist!

HOCUS FOCUS

That’s the magic spell! Distraction can be a major blow to your efficiency. Use websites such as Noisli for background music that range from a peaceful night in the woods, a train ride on a stormy night to a crowded coffee shop. And if you tend to be easily distracted by social media, Forest is a free Chrome extension (also available on iOS and Android and Windows) that you can use to plant a tree while you work, and watch it grow, but dies when you visit a site that you have blacklisted. What a time to be alive!

STICKY NOTES TO THE RESCUE

Post-It Notes can be very handy to jot down reminders, to-do lists, and the occasional paper planes. But using sticky notes on your desktop screen is even handier as they go wherever you take your laptop. Use them as a tool for visual management and help yourself grasp a pictorial idea on what’s done, what needs to be done, and when it needs to be done.

CUT THAT CLUTTER

A cluttered desk is the sign of a cluttered mind. Same goes for your desktop. Quit the habit of saving everything to the Desktop, and creating  folders called “New Folder 2” each time. An organised desktop screen will save you the embarrassment of having to search for a file while your boss breathes down your neck. But remember, just because your home screen is neat and tidy, it doesn’t make it ‘organised’ by default. ‘Organised’ is knowing where everything is.

And there you go! A few smart hacks with your hard work and you’re all set to win that race!
