    A Hunter Thompson quote I read in the press.

    “I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence or insanity to anyone, but they’ve always worked for me.”

    Or maybe he blamed the typewriter for writer’s block.

    He who lives by the gun will die by the gun.


  4. What it means? It’s Hunter Thompson. He was out of his mind on drugs, and he shot something. This time it was his typewriter. Another time it was his assistant (accidentally, we’re told).

    Great pic. I don’t know what it means either but I just love it.
