Badassery

Until a man is twenty-five, he still thinks, every so often, that under the right circumstances he could be the baddest motherfucker in the world.

If I moved to a martial-arts monastery in China and studied real hard for ten years.

If my family was wiped out by Colombian drug dealers and I swore myself to revenge.

If I got a fatal disease, had one year to live, and devoted it to wiping out street crime.

If I just dropped out and devoted my life to being bad.

Hiro used to feel this way, too, but then he ran into Corey D.

In a way, this was liberating. He no longer has to worry about being the baddest motherfucker in the world.

The position is taken.

We used to think Corey was the world's biggest badass, but new scientific research suggests that Grayson is, in fact, an even bigger badass.

Een slag tussen goden lijkt dreigend!

Wees voorzichtig, want als goden slag te doen, mensen lijden!

Translation: the gods demand a pose down.

Grayson ha il fronte anonimo di un ispettore o di un ragioniere.
