If you grew up in the 90's, you probably at one time or another played 'Where in the world is Carmen San Diego". if you are like me, you probably havent played that game in 15 years. And most of us probably never got to beat the game because we only played in school and you never got to play long enough to beat it. I am here to change both of these:

Enjoy your nostalgia, friends.

PS. For those of you wondering why I haven't been posting my "synchronicity" story anymore, its because someone recently messaged me a link to this:

http://thefarsideoflife.tumblr.com/

That isn't me, and as you can see, whoever that person is has been posting my story(as well as countless other highdea's from others) and passing it off as their own. To say i'm "pissed" is an understatement. I know, its the internet and whatever you post is no longer your property. I guess I just learned this lesson a little late. I'm sorry for those who were really enjoying the series, I wouldnt have written this far without you. My original plan was to post the entire story from beginning to end on this site, get feedback and adjust whatever parts I need to, then turn it into an actual book and try to publish it. I dont give a fuck about money, and I love all of you and thought nothing bad would come of it. Obviously, there is atleast one person trying to steal the story, so I wont be posting anymore parts. I'm really sorry guys, I was having a lot of fun posting it and discussing it with you guys, but the world proves time and time again that it isnt a great place. There is always one asshole who ruins it for everybody.

Haha I remember going to the computer lab and playing Oregon Trail too haha. We were only in like 3rd grade and I'm pretty sure no one know what the hell to do in that game.

404 Can not find.
I have only ever played this once and it was just a little hand held game thing I played whenever I was with my dad at his work hahah.
Also, inb4fucking 90's kids, people think to be a 90's kid means you were born in the 90's, yet if that was the case you hardly 'grew up' in the 90's at all. My definition of a 90's kid is someone born in the early to mid 80's, because yeah if that was the case you actually did grow up in the 90's but all these fucking '97 kids and shit saying they are '90'S KIDS' is just stupid. HERP DERP I REMEMBER SUCKING ON MY THUMB AND WATCHING HEY ARNOLD I AM 90'S KID. Irritating.

Damnit! People gotta be fuckin shit up for everyone. That story was one of the best thing I've read. Once you finish it I'll buy a copy fersure. Just post on here when itms finished. Officaly published or not I'll buy a copy. XD

Wow man, harsh. Thats like stealing someones child and passing it off as your own. But if theres a silver lining to this, at least he thought your stories were good enough to straight rob. Plus i think he took it down, the link you gave is a dead end.

The worlds full of characters, dont let one fool bring what you've created down. i can only imagine how insulting it must be but it just goes with the territory; you write well you're gonna get robbed. Have nathan to go back in time, kidnap the thief and throw him in hitlers' prison. Boom. problem solved, story lives on.

 
 
Tue, 05/29/2012 - 11:39am

God. Damnit. I can understand how infuriated you must be. Some people can't handle freedom, even if its just a little. I'm really depressed after hearing that man...I was reading this differently than I've ever read anything else. PLEASE KEEP WRITING AND GET IT PUBLISHED. Please inform us on how to get it; I know plenty of people that can't live without reading the rest. Continue writing, we all love it deeply.

yoinkie Says:

alright you guys convinced me, ill post up a couple more chapters, for like a week or less and than delete the highdea. People can go ahead and steal like a bunch of little bitches if they want, they wont have the ending. Seriously, a bunch of assholes ruin the fun for everyone.

 
 
Tue, 05/29/2012 - 6:47pm

Thank you so much, I don't even really read books and I've been dying to hear what happens next. Fuck those faggots who steal it.

Coldfool Says:

3 i beat that Oregon Trail first try, my secret...super damn lucky, but never beat it again
4 we need to be able to punch people in the face over the internet already

 
 
Tue, 05/29/2012 - 2:14pm

Fuuuuck! That bastards an ass!!
Hope you publish the book soon mate! These stories were what got me back into writing on a regular basis!

That is the worst feeling in the world when you know something you worked hard for just gets robbed like that, just remember to post your book title up here when its finished.

 
 
Tue, 05/29/2012 - 2:52pm

you know what screw that kid. I loved your stories so much. looked forward to reading this. ruined my day but I completely understand why u r doing what you are doing

 
 
Tue, 05/29/2012 - 3:08pm

i totally beat carmen san diego multiple times. i was so serious about that game. i wrote down all the abstract clues that the people would give, and when i found out which country they were referring to i would write that down so whenever i came across the same clues again i would automatically know which country to go to.

 
 
Tue, 05/29/2012 - 3:46pm

90's kids aren't 90's kids, they're actually 2010's kids. Lets spread the word!!!!

 
 
Tue, 05/29/2012 - 9:29pm

NOOOOOOO!!!!! I love this story and look on here every day to see if you've posted another part! Please do continue to write, FUUUCK those douche canoes

 
 
Tue, 05/29/2012 - 11:39pm

You should write the whole story on paper and mail it to yourself. Leave it sealed and the postmark proves that it is yours from that time. After doing this you could post it anywhere and everyone could copy it but you would still have proof it's your story.

 
 
Wed, 05/30/2012 - 6:38pm

Dudee, no :(
I need my Synchronicity fix!

But hey man, you do what you need to as to keep your sanity.
People are just bags of douche in human skin..

 
 
Tue, 06/05/2012 - 6:51am

Man, I can't believe someone would go up and just do that shit. That's the biggest kick in the nuts ever. Did he not think you would find out about it? That just pisses me off man. Anyway it's for the best that you don't put anything up about it anymore, I don't want someone taking credit for your awesome story bro.

FUCK YOU DUDE.

How can you just write an amazing story like that, iwth so many facets and open endings than just cut it.
Who gives a fuck about this guy who blogs, and for that matter who cares about anyone else. THIS, is the community that wants to read and support your story. Keep writing man, its fucking solid.
