    Highly recommend this one. On Netflix. It's a documentary on the life of John McAfee, best known for his McAfee anti-virus software. Without digging too much into the story, I'll say that he is insanely eccentric and his story takes him to Belize where he ends up involved in a murder investigation and on the run from the law.

    Oh, and he was 2nd in the Libertarian nominations behind Gary Johnson in our last election.

    Great and really odd story.

    It took me a minute to realize you weren't talking about our former walk-on starting QB.

    I've been debating whether to watch that. I already know the story and in some detail, so I'm wondering if it would be dull.

    That said, it is about McAfee. And while I set my bar high for entertainment, he has delivered and exceeded expectations in the past...

    (NSFW for language at least)

    If you know the story it will definitely take something away from viewing it. I was wrapped up in the turns and only knew him for the software piece.
