Despite displaying obviously irrational behavior, the dude did pull off some non-trivial documented tricks like founding initially successful hi-tech companies, escaping across several borders into the States, and (possibly) getting away with murder.

Some details like a harem of 8 gfs were reported by others including CNN. Think about the dude's age - 67! Despite all the mocking of his "just cuz I can" motivation, I've known some powerful people that by the time they got to 67 would do random crap just for the hell of it.

So… don't write it off completely as bath salt fiction. Sometimes a combination of rich aging control freak idle hands can produce surprising results. And for the millionth time, it really would make a fun movie.
