John McAfee Collapses At Guatemala Detention Center 219

An anonymous reader writes with this snippet from ABC News: "Software millionaire John McAfee has been taken to a Guatemala City hospital via ambulance after suffering a possible heart attack at the detention center where he is being held. McAfee, 67 — who may soon be deported back to Belize, where authorities want to question him about the shooting death of his neighbor — was reportedly prostrate on the floor of his cell and unresponsive. He was wheeled into the hospital on a gurney, but when nurses began removing his suit, he became responsive and said, 'Please, not in front of the press.' Earlier today, McAfee had complained of chest pains."

    He was unresponsive until he might get embarrased in public and then becomes responsive.

    Does this make anyone else think he was faking it, or am I just too jaded?

    Why do people always target drugs?

    Honestly, when you're around 67 years old, I'd like to see you spend a full month running from the government; little sleep, always on the move, old worn down body, hiding in trees, mind fucked from all the worrying...

    And *then* try telling me that it's drugs.

    I'm not saying that there are in fact no drugs involved--I don't know, and neither do you--but seriously, quit placing the blame for every single health condition on recreational drugs for a change. If drugs are found to be a cause, then you could add those to the potential causes, but don't fucking forget old age, which you don't need any drugs at all to take a toll on your health.

    And you know what? A lot of people take drugs, er, I mean "medication" that their doctors prescribe them once they get up in age and start having heart problems (who would've guessed, eh?). Ever think that if he is supposed to be taking prescription drugs, that maybe, just maybe, they're not exactly his top priority while trying to save himself from the Belize government? What if the *lack* of drugs combined with stress and old age are doing him in? There are too many factors that could be involved, do us all a favor and shut the fuck up about recreational drugs.
