John McAfee Wanted for Murder

"Antivirus pioneer John McAfee is on the run from murder charges, Belize police say. According to Marco Vidal, head of the national police force's Gang Suppression Unit, McAfee is a prime suspect in the murder of American expatriate Gregory Faull, who was gunned down Saturday night at his home in San Pedro Town on the island of Ambergris Caye."

He is nuts for going on Wired about it. He is saying how he has been avoiding police lately by doing some crazy stuff. He buried himself in the sand and covered his head with a cardboard box etc.

i think the guy is a bit too cookoo for cocoa puffs if you know what I mean.

Check out this article about him going on Wired etc

So this is the guy I have to thank every time McAfee kicks in on my work PC, sucks up all the CPU and RAM and stops whatever productive work I'm doing dead in it's tracks.

Just remember that if you find your burying yourself in sand and putting a cardboard box on your head to hide from the police.....well you've probably been smoking too much wacky backy....

This guy is really bonkers. Today's news takes the cake about sticking a tampon up his nose.
