- In the past, McAfee has posed a number of seemingly ridiculous questions to his Twitter followers.
- Not only that, he has also made various outlandish claims regarding the future of the crypto market — especially the price of Bitcoin.
As things stand today, ‘real knowledge’ is one of the most sought after commodities in the world. In this regard, we can see that when a person is able to accumulate enough data regarding a particular niche’ that he/she might be interested in, they can then determine with quite a large degree of mathematical certainty as to how that event will play out in the future.
For example, if we were successful in procuring a large amount of metadata about something we are truly interested in — say we want to predict the weather of a place that we want to visit in the near future — we can then make a number of accurate assumptions as to how things will pan out as and when we travel to the place in question.
A Closer Look at the Matter
Say a person wanted to find out about people who were unaware of the fact that the global weather patterns reverse when we go to the other side of the Equator. In order to do this, the individual can start off by creating a small poll on twitter and pose the following question to his/her followers:
“Guess the exact temperature in Auckland right now”
So if the month is May for example and people respond by saying it will be summer in Auckland, it shows that they are ignorant of the fact that the seasons in New Zealand work in a reverse manner when compared to the northern hemisphere. Similarly, a number of other questions can also be posed so as to “test different areas of ignorance” related to the masses.
McAfee and Whale F*****g
One of the largest thought experiments of this nature was recently conducted by John McAfee — an antivirus pioneer who is also seeking a Libertarian nomination to run for the US presidency — wherein he claimed that he was an active member of a ‘whale fucking’ club in Hawaii and asked his Twitter followers whether they thought “whale fucking was a consensual activity or not?’.
Enough of the “Whale Fucking is non-consensual” bullshit. A Humpback Whale weighs 70,000 pounds, is fifty feet long, can dive more than a quarter mile and can crush ships with a single swipe of its tail. If a human manages to fuck one, you damn well better believe it’s consensual

As ludacris as all this may sound, the author then ended up posing two more questions to his followers:
- “Do people really fuck whales?”
- “Has John McAfee fucked a whale?”The responses were quite staggering to say the least — with nearly 62 percent of the respondents saying ‘yes’ to the first question, while 41 percent people answering ‘yes’ to the second question.
In closing out this piece, it should be pointed out that as we move into the future, it is extremely important for people to carry out their personal due diligence so as to avoid becoming victims of misinformation. Of course, leave it up to the crypto crusader John McAfee to also add this tidbit, which has nothing to do with bitcoin and everything to do with life in general as an industry leading icon continues his journey into helping spread global crypto asset awareness, adoption and a touch of needful humor.
The most dangerous thing a man can encounter, is a woman with a story.

Now, if that isn’t a ‘happy wife happy life’ parting wisdom for this Mr. McAfee piece we don’t know what is.
