fear and loathing in las vegas!!!
    #2343000 - 02/16/04 09:32 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

i've heard from numberous people that fear and loathing was just a made up story and if it wre true he'd be dead :shake:!!! I thought it was true after seeing how burnt out he looked on conan o'brien. im just wondering if the story is true or not. :thumbdown: :thumbup:

he wrote a book about it

I'm sure some of it is exagerrated or whatever through the eyes of someone that totally twisted on drugs.... but I believe it's mostly true

The way I understand it, most of that stuff did happen to HST, just not in the space of a week.

but there are numerous accounts that say HST's drug consumption was rampant.

word has it, that some is true some is fiction. thats HST's style, real events all jumbled around and spiced up with loads of tall tales. He definately did loads of drugs

Hunter S. Thompson was a hell of a writer as well as a brilliant man. We can only hope that more individuals such as Hunter step forward to fight the good fight.

Some of the story is true, some of it isn't. That doesn't change the fact that Fear and Loathing was one hell of a story.

It was originally supposed to be a factual story of his coverage of the Mint 500 but I guess before publishing it he made about 25 revisions to the story, probably to spice it up. So the final product is partially fictional but alot of that stuff you just couldn't make up so it probably did happen to him at one time.

Click Here for a recent Pub post that has links to some question-and-answer lectures featuring HST. In them he says that Fear and Loathing is about 90% true.


--------------------
"...if the mind is actually part of a continuum, a labyrinth that is connected not only to every other mind that exists or has existed, but to every atom, organism, and region in the vastness of space and time itself, the fact that it is able to occasionally make forays into the labyrinth and have transpersonal experiences no longer seems so strange."

But before he answers it's 90% true, he says something to the effect of, "Well, the Statute of Limitations has probably run out on most of the stuff, so..." it's 90% true. I took it as he was only admitting 90% of the things because he couldn't be arrested for them now.
