• Hunter Thompson’s Last Words: No Fun

    by  • July 27, 2017 • Uncategorized • 0 Comments

    According to the Washington Post, here’s the suicide note Hunter Thompson wrote days before killing himself:

    “No More Games. No More Bombs. No More Walking. No More Fun. No More Swimming. 67. That is 17 years past 50. 17 more than I needed or wanted. Boring. I am always bitchy. No Fun — for anybody. 67. You are getting Greedy. Act your old age. Relax — This won’t hurt.”

    It is sobering to think what a life lived for fun can do for you when it turns “No Fun”. Or is there a way back to the joys of a fun life? Is this just depression?
