Let Your English Professor Know You Like to Get Trippy

If you thought today's current rappers loved to get "trippy," it's pale in comparison to the life and exploits that Hunter S. Thompson pursued. It was best displayed in his 1971 novel, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas: A Savage Journey to the Heart of the American Dream. Thompson and his lawyer, Dr. Gonzo, marauded the streets of Sin City, guzzling LSD, ether, cocaine, and the extract of a human adrenaline gland—all while lamenting on the destruction of the hippy movement and a downfall in American politics. Thompson was also as great of a writer as he was an addict, and his "Gonzo journalism" has inspired much of what we do today.
