P.S. No-one at the house, including the staff, know that I am nearby. If the police are reading this, do not randomly round up everyone for harboring a fugitive. Please.

John McAfee is such a master of disguise that even though the most elite police unit in Belize has more or less set up camp at his house solely to find him, he's able to wander around close enough to the house to watch their every move simply by dressing up as a German tourist in a Speedo while hollering "Leck mich um ausch!" at passers-by.

This has to be a hoax.

Apparently he was known for laying the bullshit on pretty thick even before he turned into a full-time paranoid tweaker, so I'm inclined to think this whole thing sits at the intersection of "hoax" and "really is written by John McAfee"

I mean, yes. But at the same time would an elite police unit expect someone on the run to do something quite that ridiculous either?

I think another possible explanation is that it is his blog, but with the element of truth carefully dispensed and the element of hyperbole liberally dispensed.

I'm not sure that's more likely than hoax, but it's a possibility I maybe wouldn't eliminate.

I hope he had the theme music to "Fletch" playing through hidden ear buds as he did all of this.
