The night after their last mission before the wedding, as he watches his fiance sleep, Florida decides he’s going to take Reggie’s name.
When he says this the next morning, as they’re preparing to go home, it’s met with a raised eyebrow and a quite suspicious “Why?”
Being good to each other is so important, guys.
Remember IT IS NOT A WOMAN’S RESPONSIBILITY TO PREVENT RAPE. In the world we live in, however, women should be empowered with any tools in order to protect themselves. Source for more facts follow NowYouKno
This is great
They should make it clear so guys can use it to! :3
I think a clear version of the nail polish is a brilliant idea. I want to clarify now that THE NAIL POLISH IS NOT FOR SALE YET. I read so on Undercover Colors Facebook Page: ”Thank you so much for the positive response and interest in Undercover Colors. We could not be more thrilled with the supportive feedback we’ve received so far! Many people are wondering where they can purchase Undercover Colors, and while we love the enthusiasm, we need to clarify a few items that may have been lost in all the media excitement of the past few days.
First of all, our product is not yet for sale. We are in the early development of our nail polish. One of our main priorities is to ensure that we develop a product that tests for a comprehensive set of drugs before we release it. Our proof-of-concept research has been very promising and we want to continue to build on this early success before we officially release a product in stores. Your continued support as we work through our research phase is not only appreciated, but crucial to our goal of developing the first effective deterrent to drug-facilitated sexual assault.
Secondly, we are definitely considering a crowdsourcing campaign, like Kickstarter. Thank you for this suggestion. Our audience will be the first to know if and when this campaign launches.
Lastly, we have been astounded and uplifted by your feedback. The support has been truly overwhelming! Unfortunately, we are a small company and we are not able to respond to every message individually. Please know that I have personally read each one, and I am blown away by your openness and kindness. We are committed to bringing this product to market in the quickest timeframe we can muster.
If you would like to help us speed up the process, please consider supporting our research and development efforts. Right now our biggest need is in the research and development department. And while we have raised over $10,000 from personal donations which go directly towards R&D, more is needed for adequate and timely development. If you are interested in supporting this cause, please visit http://undercovercolors.com/undercover-colors—support-us.html. We have added a Paypal option here as well.
We look forward to developing this great product as quickly as possible. Thank you again for your support and inspiration.
All the best,
Cofounder and CEO”

wait a minute
actually, no. don’t wait a minute. i will accept this. i would just clear the bullshit-factory from my mind, get sussed out, constantly have my shit together in every situation, and charged my entire being with creativity and awareness.
i am so down with this~
No more depression. No more anxiety. No more losing my temper at stupid shit. No more crippling fear for the future… None of it.
You guys don’t think big enough.
Feeling motivated and pumped 24/7. Conscious access to your pattern-matching faculties and muscle and generic memory. Splinter your hemispheres and delegate different tasks for improved multi-tasking. Whatever it is you’re doing, from rocket science to playing Starcraft for a living, you’d be dominating the field in a decade.
not big enough.
with 100% brain power you can learn anything much faster than anyone on earth and master it at a record pace, you could out program entire companies, out smart geniuses, never sleep as you can rest your brain in phases become the all powerful being.
every post on this site always ends with world domination has anyone noticed that
"Me llamo Groot" or "Mi nombre es Groot" would be grammatically correct, I think???
No but Grif growing up poor and growing up fast watching ancient pirated tv shows and whoops, suddenly he’s got a dependent, better be a responsible stable adult at an age when most people are just figuring out what to do with themselves. Grif working so hard at anything he can just to keep them afloat and together and in a position where sister can goof off and be a kid in a way Grif never got to be at that age. Grif lecturing Kai on safety and safe practices and teaching her how to defend herself as best he can because if she’s gonna fool around with every stranger that shows an interest behind his back he can at least teach her to deal with repercussions. Kai experimenting with drugs and sex in dangerous ways and they can’t afford consistent check ups and Grif wants her to be safe.
Grif being incapable of expressing gooey emotions like love with words and just telling her not to embarrass the family while simultaneously pulling all the strings and calling in favors he doesn’t have to keep her from harm.
Grif working at a garage and getting desperate but not quite reckless. Kai can’t afford recklessness from him. Grif knowing how to hotwire literally anything. Kai learning how to hotwire literally anything, just from paying more attention than she lets on. Kai’s not smart like Dex is smart but she’s smart in other ways.
Kai being alone while Grif is at work. Grif is always at work unless he’s sleeping. Kai being lonely. Kai doing things she shouldn’t to avoid the loneliness. Grif changing his schedule for his second job with his shitty boss so he makes sure he is home and awake at least two hours while she is. Grif eating even shittier food to make up for it. Arguing against Kai going to work herself.
Grif being so, so tired.
When he gets a one-man draft it’s like the punchline of the shittiest joke in existence.
He fights and he fights and his bosses let him go but they all promise him a place when he comes back. One of the even means it.
And then he’s gone and Kai is alone. Kai dives into her bad habits but levels out because even though some of them are really fun. Okay a lot of them are really fun. She cuts back a little because she’s never really cared about disappointing the family but Dex is her family and now he’s gone and without him shouting at her a lot of the really potentially dangerous stuff doesn’t seem much fun any more, even though she can take care of herself now. She doesn’t need Dex. But she really, really wants Dex.
Grif eating horrible snackfood because it reminds him of home, and basic was bad but Blood Gulch makes him nervous because he is fully aware that something is really, really off. Grif eventually losing the nervousness and trading it for spite against the bastards who put him in a box canyon with another team of saps and told them to kill each other. Grif’s not sure why no one talks about how the war is supposed to be against aliens.
Grif putting as much effort into being lazy as he ever put into work. Command refusing to discharge him, so Grif building up extravagant strategies to be the penultimate useless bastard.
Grif mistrusting anyone in a position of power over him because they are the obstacle between him and going home to the only person in his life that matters.
Grif meeting Simmons and spending every waking and sometimes sleeping moment around Simmons because Simmons is a kiss ass but he’s a decent asshole whenever his daddy issues cool down a little. And he grew up on shitty ancient tv too, so there’s that.
And Grif waits, because being active might make him look useful.
Grif’s had more sleep in his first month at Blood Gulch than he got in his six months back home.
And eventually it becomes a habit, because Grif’s had always been prone to addiction.
Dex had said to let him handle it but it’s not like Kai really has anything of worth left in Honolulu and anyway he had said that when he got the stupid letter and she hadn’t seen him since. She hasn’t even gotten a message from him. (Grif has, actually, sent them, but he hasn’t received any and can only hope no news is good news) She’s not on first name basis with the woman handling all her phone calls about Dex but that’s okay because Kai’s wearing her down and in the meantime Kai calls her Hot Voice McRawr. She doesn’t tell Kai where Dex is and Kai decides to do something drastic. Kai knows her brother is smart and can take care of himself and she knows she can take care of herself but she’s sick of being alone and really, what if he’s out in space, embarrassing her? He’s the coolest most of the time but really, she should check up on him to make sure. Kai’s pretty sure the army doesn’t have anything she can’t handle.
I literally overcame self esteem issues by making ironically over-arrogant claims because even if you’re joking about something a lot you start to believe it and that can totally work in a good way if you let it
okay but a story about an asexual pirate who gets made fun of by the crew until he saves all of them from sirens
A pirate for the adventure, not the booty
oh my gosh i want that on a bumper sticker
Trying to pilot a ship here. Thanks.
IT GOT BETTER
Important, always-relevant comic done by the wonderful Ursa Eyer.
And that anon asshole actually had the nerve to ask me how I knew that someone was being hostile to me on the street, if I didn’t actually hear the words they used. This is how I knew. Years and years and years of street harassment (not always this kind of street harassment, but street harassment is street harassment whether it’s about being female, or ambiguously gendered, or ugly, or disabled). I know the fucking tone by now.
