So would I, though probably with just a few less guns.

To Belize? Hell, I know the dollar has a great exchange rate there, but this guy has a shiatload of money. I'd rather move to a country in Europe than someplace where the government can come at you on a whim.

I will actually have the chance to visit Belize for two weeks at the end of the year. Plus, I will have a native guide.

I just wanted a place to brag. I will read the article now.

"...and a small armory's worth of firearms: seven pump-action shotguns, one single-action shotgun, two 9-mm. pistols, 270 shotgun cartridges, 30 9-mm. pistol rounds, and twenty .38 rounds"

That is not much of an armory. Looks like for pest control, not enough ammo for serious hunting.

European regulations on teenage prostitutes are slightly stricter than in Belize.

Why else would a wealthy American playboy hole himself up out here, far from the tourist zone on the coast, by a navigable river that happened to connect, twenty miles downstream, with a remote corner of the Mexican border?

I think you had your answer earlier in the article:

You can call him Esteban.
 
2012-11-10 12:03:07 PM
Didn't the original raid story earlier this year indicate that McAfee had failed to properly bribe the local officials, which lead directly to the raid?

I'm off to Google.

It's not me.

It's an interesting approach, but it's not "me."

Well only if she actually LOOKED 12 ....
I had a 12 year old girlfriend once, Well actually she was 20 ,but she had the body of a 12 year old so it still worked out for me

Its like a double barrel shotgun but only one barrel. You have to manually unhinge the barrel, eject the casing and reload after every shot.

FTA "John McAfee is a founding father of the anti-virus software industry, an inveterate self-promoter who built an improbable web security empire on the principles of trust and reliability,"
Clearly someone is using a version of his antivirus I never ran into. The one I run into is bloated, misses most of what it should catch, and gives off false positives. The only way they stay in business is to embed the junk on new computers and hope the new user doesn't know how to get rid of it.

We use McAfee at work (ugh). To be honest, I actually prefer Microsoft Security Essentials, and that's free.

The rumor is he moved all his assets to Belize to avoid any financial judgement from the lawsuit over his nephews death. The nephew was running his flight school but was not licensed as an instructor when he and his student were killed in a crash.

Switzerland's Sixteen-Year-Old Prostitute Problem

Switzerland is the only European country where girls are allowed to work as prostitutes beginning at age 16. That's a reasonable age of sexual consent. But for sex workers, Switzerland lives in sin until it raises the minimum age for prostitution to 18.

If I had that kind of dough I'd move to a classy, cultured place like Vienna or Helsinki or Copenhagen, or buy a villa on a lovely lake in northern Italy. But then, I don't want to make teh sexy with teenage girls.

At least they're post-ops, judging by the crotch-areas of those bikinis.

I've been to interior Belize. There were a lot of very nice people there and there were some angry ones. This was 20 years ago so there was still some anti-colonial feeling. Given that they have a tourism based industry now, that's probably changed.
An old guy from way in the boonies asked me to take a picture of him and his brother because they didn't have one. He was worried that he would pay me and never get the picture. I said I'd do it for free and now watch this. I used a polaroid. Of course he was blown away as the picture came up. It turned out lots of people were eavesdropping, so I won that crowd over big-time.

/I never packed for a trip better than I packed for that one. I took everything I needed and used everything I took.

What we would call a person with a collection like that if he lived in Idaho: "unarmed".

"Success, for me," he has said, "is being able to wake up in the morning and feel like a 12 year old."

But one wasn't available so he had to settle for a 17 year old.

I've been to Switzerland, I couldn't even afford to get drunk there.

"Inside, the cops found $20,000 in cash, a lab stocked with chemistry equipment, and a small armory's worth of firearms: seven pump-action shotguns, one single-action shotgun, two 9-mm. pistols, 270 shotgun cartridges, 30 9-mm. pistol rounds, and twenty .38 rounds. Vexingly for the police, all of this was actually legal. The guns were licensed and the lab appeared not to be manufacturing drugs but an herbal antibacterial compound."

That's nowhere enough ammunition for anything besides target practice. Example: I have four 25-round boxes of shotgun ammo I purchased myself and two 100-round boxes of Walmart ammo that a neighbor gave me, which means I own 300 shotgun rounds. It takes up about 14 inches of room on a single shelf. And why keep .38 rounds if you have nothing to fire them with?

Meh.
