Thumbs up Gringo: The dangerous life of John McAfee (Netflix)

Quote:
Tech tycoon John McAfee made millions from his anti-virus software. Now, he may be best known for his bizarre and scandalous lifestyle.
Ummm yeah, so that was a weird ride. The whole thing is so frigging outlandish that it actually feels like it's true.

There's a part about McAfee's sexual proclivities involving girls in hammocks that is bound to appeal to some of the Marines here.

Wild ride. 6.5/10

I believe the raid on his Orange Walk home and "lab" was the result of crooked politicians/police who did not get a contribution they wanted.

I don't believe that lab assistant was not sleeping with him.

As to the alleged sexual assault and the murder, no idea.

Was on a United flight with that dude once prior to the election. Him and his...rather large lady...drank the entire stock of booze then started yelling at everyone to vote for him. It was like Napoleon Dynamite got completely shithoused.
