I understand why a lot of people hate him and sometimes I want to punch him but I really can’t bring myself to outright hate H.P. Lovecraft I mean

the man was afraid of salad.

this is officially the best lovecraft fact i have ever read in my entire life

even better than the fact that he wrote an entire essay explaining why he thought cats were better than dogs

Howard Phillips Lovecraft was an absolute trainwreck of a human being who among other things:

  • Did extensive colonial era roleplay via the mail with his penpals and even dated regular correspondence as 17– just because he could.
  • WROTE SO MANY LETTERS HE IS SECOND ONLY TO VOLTAIRE IN THE SHEER VOLUME OF CORRESPONDENCE WE HAVE FROM ANY SINGLE PERSON
  • Once sat in the same chair for 9 hours from 10 pm to 7 am because a cat was sitting on his lap and he didn’t want to disturb it.
  • Was terrified of seafood and most plants; as a result of this he lived primarily on a diet of baked beans and candy and (it has been theorized) was therefore constantly hallucinating from malnutrition.

what the fuck Lovecraft.
No wonder he wrote what he did. I knew he was a racist asshole but this is ridiculous.

Don't be the product, buy the product!
