          BECAUSE LAWYERS TASTE TERRIBLE.

  • http://chrisconrey.com/ Chris Conrey

    I love these stretch goals like a bad startup founder loves conference t-shirts. Anxiously awaiting the chance to buy my salvation from FG when this launches

    also for the record – I’ll bet on the 200k goal to get hit.

    • FAKE GRIMLOCK

      ME BET ALL OF THEM HIT!

      BECAUSE AWESOME!

  • http://gawk.it/ falicon

        If there was paypal equiv. where I could send bacon and beer…would do….actually if you give *any* option other than paypal I’m sure I’ll do something (I have personal protest against shitty paypal) ;-)

        p.s. I am looking forward to the book too…

        • FAKE GRIMLOCK

    I’d recommend one of the Kickstarter rewards being FakeGrimlock visiting a startup for $xxxx donation

    • FAKE GRIMLOCK

      THAT GOING TO BE A REWARD LEVEL. ME PUBLISH THEM LATER.

      QUESTION IS WHAT PRICE?

  • Guest

    Why hardcover? Better to hit people on head?

  • http://twitter.com/herringunderfur anne weiler

    Why hardcover? Better to hit puny humans on head?

    • FAKE GRIMLOCK

      HIGHER VALUE, COST NOT THAT MUCH MORE.

      ALSO, BETTER FOR HAND DOWN TO CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN AS SACRED ARTIFACT OF AWESOMENESS.

      • http://lauriekalmanson.blogspot.com/ laurie kalmanson

        seth calls hardcover books, “souvenirs”

  • http://twitter.com/jose_ibanez Jose Ibanez

    There should be a level where you go on a rampage and eat a bunch of people who are not the NO EAT FRIDAY list.

    • FAKE GRIMLOCK

      KICKSTARTER SURPRISINGLY RESTRICTIVE ABOUT OFFERING MASS SLAUGHTER.

      STUPID #TOS.

  • http://twitter.com/wesleybliss Wesley Bliss

    what about $5,000 epub? need to be able to bring grimthoughts on the subway easily.

    • FAKE GRIMLOCK

      EVERY DONOR LEVEL GET DIGITAL COPY OF EVERYTHING.

      STILL DEBATING OFFICIAL EBUB ON AMAZON OR APPLE.

  • http://www.facebook.com/dede.taylor.73 Dede Taylor

    First.. why facebook no change my profile pic since christmas. but you don’t care… I’ll donate what I can.. for no other reason that I super double extra triple heart you.

    • FAKE GRIMLOCK

      ME NOT ON FACEBOOK, NOT KNOW ABOUT THAT.

      ME LIKE SUPER DOUBLE EXTRA TRIPLE HEARTS.

      THEM DELICIOUS.

  • http://twitter.com/nlsanders nate sanders

    What if your 80,000 level was a personalized poster for several startups you choose?

    • FAKE GRIMLOCK

      THERE ALREADY A LOT OF POSTERS.

      SOME DONOR LEVELS COME WITH POSTERS FOR EVERYONE.

  • http://twitter.com/playvue Playvue Games

    Absolutely love the existence of a $1M stretch goal. Let alone how freaking amazingly awesome either the $500K or $1M rewards would be. Also, FTR, I like t-shirts. “If you don’t shoot for the stars, you’ll end up somewhere around Fresno.”

    • FAKE GRIMLOCK

      ME, GRIMLOCK, NO DO ANYTHING SMALL.

  • http://twitter.com/John_PeakApps John Windsor

    Love the stretch goals! But Kickstarter rewards aren’t usually set up for “EVERYONE GET EVERYTHING”, otherwise, what’s the incentive to sign up at higher levels? What if you had things like “$5 ME NO EAT YOU” on up to “$500 ME EAT WORST ENEMY” and “$1 million WE BFF” . . . ?

    • FAKE GRIMLOCK

      ME DO EVERYONE GET EVERYTHING ON ORIGINAL POSTER PROJECT, IT WORK GREAT.

      ME POST DONOR LEVELS NEXT WEEK. THEM INCLUDE INDIVIDUAL BONUSES.

  • Jonny Schnittger

    You need to add signed/stamped/mauled editions, special “Friend of FAKEGRIMLOCK” social badges and a list of early supporters to be included in the book…

    • FAKE GRIMLOCK

      THAT GOOD IDEA. ME DO.

      • Jonny Schnittger

        Yay! There should be a packet of free bacon/jerky with each book too :) #Nom

  • http://lauriekalmanson.blogspot.com/ laurie kalmanson

    #becauseawesome

    • FAKE GRIMLOCK

      ALWAYS.

  • http://engag.io/ William Mougayar

    What an awesome list! Where is the Kickstarter link so I can signup?

    • FAKE GRIMLOCK

      NOT LIVE YET.

  • Jonny Schnittger

    Really like the updates, especially the coder dojo ones :) Great idea

  • http://chrisconrey.com/ Chris Conrey

    Love the new stretch goals – why limit the locations to CodoDojo (although more kids coding = winning at life) and HackerDojo – why not FAKEGRIMLOCK’S TOUR OF AWESOMENESS AND DESTRUCTION and hit the hotspots around the US that aren’t SF and NY. Boulder, Phoenix, SD, Austin etc

    • FAKE GRIMLOCK

      BECAUSE THEM ONES ME HAVE RELATIONSHIP WITH.

      REST OBVIOUSLY SLACKERS.

      • http://chrisconrey.com/ Chris Conrey

        So what we had was not a relationship? I feel so used. Still kinda liked it.

        • FAKE GRIMLOCK

          YOU A DOJO NOW? WHEN THAT HAPPEN?

  • http://twitter.com/traceyklein Tracey Klein

    $2M – FG TAKE OFF FAKE DINO HEAD AND REVEAL HE BRAD PITT’S TWIN BROTHER

    • FAKE GRIMLOCK
