The Freak Power of Hunter S. Thompson

Hunter S. Thompson once said, “If you’re going to be crazy, you have to get paid for it or else you’re going to be locked up.” Thompson made his crazy work for him. His life and writing led him everywhere from riding with the Hells Angels to ingesting copious amounts of illegal drugs in Vegas while sports reporting for Rolling Stone.

If you’ve never heard of Hunter S. Thompson, start with his book Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, then watch the movie starring Johnny Depp.
