Our almost fearless and definitely unsuspecting hero Theodore Baeringer aka Teddy Baer, has only one thing on his mind. No, not that! he’s only 12!
Teddy was on his way to see his uncle, Jo Kester, at his comic book store, Kommic World, to get the latest issue of his all-time favorite super-hero, Captain Truth, issue #37, “Captain Truth Rescues the World From Dr. Droolz”. Unfortunately, on his way to the store, Teddy finds out that someone stole the very last copy! HIS COPY! The one Uncle Jo saved for him! The one he’s been saving 2 month’s worth of paper route money to get! (It’s a REALLY small and usually quiet town.) Determined to get his comic book, Teddy throws caution to the wind, for the first time, as he patrols the neighborhood, in search of clues (and unpaid paper delivery bills), to foil the culprit who stole his prized comic!
Follow our brave hero as he makes his way through town and parts unknown, avoiding obstacles and danger at every turn (well, almost every turn). Guide Teddy to avoid the local pests and parked cars! And find out who committed such a dastardly deed!
(Yea right, like you don’t have a favorite comic book!)
Prepared to defend himself using his wits and his almost instant reflexes, our hero sets forth on an adventure like no other. Armed only with the bare essentials, a full bag of newspapers, his older brother Dave’s new sling shot, his Captain Truth Scooter as transportation, and his faithful companion Blip, the toy robot (What’d you expect, Plasma Rifles, Particle Cannons, and Rail Guns? ), Teddy will bravely set out to overcome the almost nearly impossible!
Help OUR hero save HIS hero – Captain Truth, and bring the villains who broke into Uncle Jo’s to justice!
(AND hopefully get Dave’s sling shot back in his room before he finds out!)
You’re going to need nerves of steel, almost perfect timing, a healthy sense of humor, and a strong curiosity in the unknown to guide our hero through local neighborhood streets, parks, shopping centers, playgrounds, and to where ever else the trail will lead.
Has anyone else been getting the emails (from major corporations) about Epsilon email service provider being breached, and an undisclosed number of email addresses (the companies affected claim that only email address information was compromised?) getting exposed? Or are the email apologies the actual breach?
Ah, there is nothing like sifting through 50 to 100 emails a day from the date-sites, drug-sites. and watch knock-off sites!
I was curious to see how the results fare today, I remember back when I was about 9, with my friends we swapped 5.25 floppies with games on them. I was even shown how to double the storage on a box of floppies using a whole puncher. Real “state of the art” at the time.
There is a WordPress blog that is up to the minute “literally” on events in Greece. If interested a link is available on the right. An important note, the blog is written in Greek, but any of the translator sites can help with that. As a side note, Google’s translation holds up better in readability and comprehension than Microsoft’s.
