    " The thing to do-when you're running along about a hundred or so and you suddenly find a red-flashing CHP -tracker on your trail-what youi want to do is accelerate. Never pull over with the first siren howl. Mash it down and make the bastard chase you at speeds up to 120 all the way to the next exit. He will follow. But he wont know what to make of your blinker that says you're about to turn right.
    This is to let him know your looking for a proper place to pull off and talk... keep signaling and hope for and offramp....abnd the trick at this point is to suddenly leave the freeway and tam him into the chute at no less than a houndered miles and hour.
    He will lovk his brakes about the same time you lock yours, but it will take him a moment to realize that hes about to make a 180 degree turn a this speed... but you will be ready for it, braced for the G's and fast heel-toe work, and with any luck at al you will have come to a complete stop off the road at the top of the turn and be standing beside your automobile by the time he catches up.
    He will not be reasonable at first... but no matter...Let him unwind; keep smiling. The idea isto show him that you were always in total control of yourself and the vehicle - while he lost control of everything."

    I have. Where the buffalo roam is much better adaptation of Hunter S Thompson and Bill Murray plays a better role than Johnny Depp.

    uh... technically it wasn't any sort of 'first part' but... I got to meet Bill Murray (and Brian Doyle) when he was preparing for the role... I was just a small kid so, when I first saw him I just turned around and said: "LOOK DAD! IT'S MEATBALLS!!!!"

    Anywho, he would follow Hunter around and repeat everything he said, completely nuts... like Hunter had some crazy ass delay hooked to his voice. I believe that time nearly killed Layla (Hunter's girlfriend)... Murray's portrayal is pretty dead on...

    Also, a little known fact, though oft sited by me here, is that Hunter is a pack rat, he saves EVERYTHING, so, part of Johnny Depp's deal was that he got to meet Hunter, which is something Hunter doesn't like to do, but, after talking a bit Hunter actually took a shine to JD and graced him by taking him to a closet and presenting him with the actual outfit he wore over the Fear and Loathing weekend. The clothes Johnny wears are Hunter's ACTUAL clothes... there's another story abuot how JD begged to borrow Hunter's old green (peacock shit covered) Volvo, JD let Hunter drive some rental hot rod (Ferrari or someshit) and Hunter ran his errands... While at the liquor store Hunter realized he'd left his check book in his own car, but found Johnny's in the rental, so he simply forged Johnny Depp's name on the check... of course, the liquor store owner knew Hunter and Johnny didn'twant any beef... still, I wish I had such a luxury...
