    Founder of the anti virus giant was a complete maniac.

    Whole article too long to post.

    John McAfee is an enigma.

    He built one of the biggest antivirus companies to date, and yet it's what happened after this chapter of his life that made him a legend.

    McAfee once lived in Belize and allegedly got caught up with drugs and other illegal activities.

    Since then, he's made a bid to run for president, founded his own political party, and was recently named the chairman and CEO of a mysterious new company.

    Here's a look into who the man once was, what he became, and where he is now.

    Trust us — it's a wild ride.

    "By the end of the 1980's the company was making $5M"

    Why do so many people think tiny companies are huge and gross revenues = profits?" It was maybe $10M in today's dollars. A lot of body shop chains and plumbing outfits do more than that. I think a lot of writers don't really understand how different "million" and "billion" are.

    He'd be in prison here if he was still screwing all the underage girls he was down in Belize.

    He was on the run for a while. He would have been apprehended sooner but he kept receiving pop ups warning that he might be at risk.
