John McAfee's Death Disappoints John McAfee

[tweet t=https://twitter.com/officialmcafee/status/377115874655612929]​
Anti-virus software pioneer and former fugitive John McAfee is saddened by reports of his death and says he felt fine when he went to bed last night.

Indymedia Ireland reported early this morning that John McAfee, the groundbreaking software engineer who in more recent years has become infamous for his hard-living [http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/125178-John-McAfee-Snorts-Bath-Salts-Uninstalls-McAfee-Anti-Virus] ways and possible connection to a murder in Belize, has passed away.

McAfee was pronounced dead at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, where he was discovered by security personnel in a semi-conscious state following what authorities believe was a "cocaine and alcohol-fueled binge," according to the report. He slipped into unconsciousness shortly after and could not be revived.

The news of John McAfee's death came as both a surprise and a disappointment to John McAfee, who took to Twitter to express his sorrow and regret. "I felt fine when I went to bed last night. I had such great plans," he wrote. "RIP John McAfee."

It's not known what prompted the original story of McAfee's demise, but it's definitely a sad end to the sad end of a man who deserves a better ending - although he'll probably end up ending up very much like the story describes, even if he's not quite there yet.

I wonder if he'll be attending the funeral. I mean if I was informed of my own passing, paying my respects to myself would be the very least I could do.

Wait, I'm confused. What just happened? Why is the article so cryptic with what it's reporting?

So... did he die or didn't he?

I feel the same way. I think he didn't, but then again I also think that Andy wrote the article so cryptic so he has deniability in case McAfee is indeed dead.

Would probably show up waisted. When somebody calls him out on it, he'd be all "Hey man, this is what I'd have wanted!"
He should sing his own Dust In The Wind eulogy. "You're my boy John! You're my boy!"

Please see Samuel Clemens for clarification re: The report of my death was an exaggeration.

Or, the article is a joke. Either someone was pretending to be McAffee or some reporter failed horribly in their research (possibly both), and McAffee responded sarcastically upon hearing that he was apparently dead. Andy likes sarcasm, so he wrote the article about the mixup in a deadpan manner.

It sound like an April Fool prank came way too early or does he really want to died?

Seems it's the media that killed him, and his post was probably sarcastic. Just check his newer tweets.

Possibly a different John McAfee died and the press got the wrong one... man, that's gonna suck for the real John's family... (I have no evidence anything like this happened, just thinking out loud...)

I feel like McAfee has reached the Mike Tyson Zone, in which anything we hear about a celebrity's crazy antics is completely plausible, no matter how insane the rumor is. I believe it is perfectly possible for him to have died of a massive drug overdose, only to get up and walk away like nothing ever happened the next morning. Why? Because he's John McAfee.
