Where Can She Be?

The only old-school computer game that can rival Oregon Trail is Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego. While my family only had the demo version of Oregon Trail--I had to try to kill my wagon-mates really quickly--we had the full Carmen Sandiego, so it holds a special place in my heart. All I know about geography I owe to that sticky-fingered filcher.

Check out this list of fun facts about Carmen. Some favorites:

3. Carmen used to be an ACME agent before defecting to V.I.L.E. (the Villains' International League of Evil).

7. One episode of Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego was never aired because the contestant fell down in the bonus round and broke her arm.
