Hunter S. Thompson

Hunter S. Thompson (18/07/1937 - 20/02/2005) was an American journalist and author. He is credited as the creator of “Gonzo Journalism”

He is known also for his lifelong use of alcohol, LSD, mescaline, and cocaine (among other substances); his love of firearms; his inveterate hatred of Richard Nixon; and his iconoclastic contempt for authoritarianism.

While suffering a bout of health problems, Thompson committed suicide in 2005 at the age of 67. His ashes were fired from a cannon to the tune of Norman Greenbaum's “Spirit in the Sky” and Bob Dylan's “Mr. Tambourine Man.” The cannon was placed atop a 153-foot tower of his own design, in the shape of a double-thumbed fist clutching a peyote button

67. That is 17 years past 50.
17 more than I needed or wanted.
I am always bitchy.
No Fun — for anybody.
You are getting Greedy.
Act your (old) age.
Relax —
This won't hurt.
