He was a self-confessed freak, a maniac, a drug fiend greatly enamored with guns, whiskey, and quantities of hallucinogens that could knock out entire metropolises at a time. Today, we’re speeding into ten lesser known facts about Gonzo himself, Hunter S. Thompson.

Buster Keaton – The Falling House

More on Buster Keaton: The famous shot where the entire side of a house falls on him and he’s saved only by the fortunate placement of a window?
