  1. Love it^^

  2. That is a lot of cocaine

  3. like a boss :D

  4. Cocaine is one hell of a drug

  5. first check good?

  6. Coke? Hell he was beyond coke coke was like caffeine to him .

    Read Fear (not the movie) and loathing and his stuff He makes Charlie sheen look like Donnie Osmund.

  7. Gut-busting hilarious… Thompson influenced the past few generations with his invention of Gonzo Journalism. His work and antics will live on to influence even more generations to come. I paid tribute to Hunter S Thompson and his work with my portrait and article on my artist’s blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/02/in-memoriam-hunter-s-thompson.html

  8. THAT IS FUCKING AWESOME

  9. In all fairness this was obviously a joke on Thompson’s behalf
    A) First check, what are the chances that this was the first thing he bought with that book of checks.
    B) $2,000,000 would have bought like a warehouse filled to the ceiling with cocaine in 1979 especially if Thompson was buying it!
    C)The check is obviously not voided
    Though I have to say the real story behind this is prolly 2,000,000x cooler than any drug deal!

  10. A warehouse filled to the ceiling? No way. More like a duffel bag. Cocaine is really expensive.
    This is two and a half million worth:

  11. bruce, in 1979 it would have been much cheaper, therefore being in a much larger quantity

  12. How does one know it is the first check of the book? I’m curious. not arguing.

  13. it reads 101 in the upper right hand corner, thats the first check in a check book.

  14. Not necessarily. I had the bank start numbering my checks at 379 just to mess with people who are weird like me :)

  15. Jimmy Buffett also lived at 704 Waddell Ave. New life goal: get an apartment in that building.

    You know that law enforcement calculate the highest price right? It’s because they can frame you for more and lock you away for a even longer time. Prices vary and they estimate from the highest they know of.

  17. Hunter S. Thompson…talented, but what a waste. I see people who thought he was sooo cool…but he wasn’t cool at all.
    I wonder if he understood how people were laughing at him, not with him? Like a poor old sod playing the clown for everybody’s
    amusement. Funny in a very sad way until the end of his life. He was an evil, selfish person. I mean, he shot his brains out
    with his son, daughter in law and grandson in the next room. What a burden to intentionally place on your family. I am not a psychiatrist,
    but my diagnosis for Hunter S. Thompson requires one simple word…’EVIL’.
    “The psychology of evil” explains his actions.” It’s not accepted as a psychiatric diagnosis yet, but many shrinks have written
    books about the concept. It is kind of like a psychiatrist ruling out all mental illnesses…and only evil explains certain horrible actions. I think he had
    big talent , but so what? The way he lived and exited planet earth leaves him with a tarnished epitaph to the nth factor. It is guys like Hunter S. Thompson
    that makes the world a horrible place to live in. Though, with the devil riding shotgun with Hunter and calling the shots, I sure try to be empathetic. Usually,
    Satan comes disguised. In Hunter’s case, Satan manipulated Hunter like a puppet master. At least it was apparent to me from my perspective. Satan is not
    funny or cool, and he certainly destroyed his life.

  18. In response to ‘S.Korek’, your comment is both completely unfounded and highly unintelligent. I struggle to see how people “were laughing at him, not with him”, the whole point with Hunter S. Thompson is that if you read his books and articles you were in on the joke.

    I would say “no offence” to you, but i’d be lying. You’re strange attempt at psychoanalysis seems to have been marred quite heavily by religion. The fact that you even mentioned Satan just makes you sound like a sad loser who gently masturbates over his neighbours children playing outside.

    As far as evil goes, Hunter actually actively tried to make his country a better place for rational people from all backgrounds, he documented watergate and Nixon’s re-election so people of a younger generation would not make the same mistake. Obviously it didn’t make as much of a difference as it should have. As i’m sure you’ll agree, people like you aren’t doing the world any favours, and never will.

    Thank DARWIN for that.

  19. “The fact that you even mentioned Satan just makes you sound like a sad loser who gently masturbates over his neighbours children playing outside. ”

    That might be the funniest thing I’ve ever read. Ever.

  20. S. Korek that has to be the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard I feel dumber having read it thanks
