If you had a computer in the 90s or the early 2000s, you probably remember McAfee VirusScan, the program you ran on your computer to make sure you didn’t get a nasty porn virus that was dialing 900 numbers and posting dicks all over your computer. But did you know that John McAfee, the person responsible for the company that made the ubiquitous software, is fucking crazy?

Last January, Johnny-boy said that income tax is illegal and that he hasn’t paid his income taxes in 8 years and told the IRS “Here I am,” daring them to arrest him.

Yesterday, John McAfee was arrested in Spain to be extradited to the US for not paying his taxes because the rules of the Ayn Rand shitshow in McAfee’s head don’t apply to the real world where the US Constitution says in Article 1, Section 8, Clause 1 “The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States.” It doesn’t get clearer than that.

McAfee’s legal problems don’t end there because he’s also being sued by the SEC for the way he used his Twitter account to promote Bitcoin knockoffs.

The SEC lawsuit specifically mentions McAfee promising to “eat his own dick on national TV” if Bitcoin wasn’t worth half a million dollars in three years. Despite being off by a factor of 50 over three years later, he has not yet gobbled down his own choad on Fear Factor.

26. McAfee’s extravagant posts (such as tweeting predictions about BTC price increases and promising to “eat my d**k on national television” if such predictions did not pan out) and interviews about his BTC predictions generated an enormous amount of publicity, especially among the digital asset community. From June 2017—just before McAfee’s first BTC price prediction—to December 2017, McAfee went from roughly 62,000 followers to more than 500,000 on Twitter. His $1,000,000 BTC price prediction garnered more than 12,000 “Likes” and 8,000 “Retweets.”

Really, this is the second-funniest thing I’ve heard all week.
