Now that John McAfee is back stateside, the software company founder has retreated from blogging tales of escaping Belize and begun offering tidbits of life advice.

In an interview with Oregon's Willamette Week earlier this month, McAfee spitballed on a wide range of subjects, including money ("the secret is you have to abandon every preconception about money") and sex.

"[Money] is like sex," he said. "You think sex is hard to get, and yet everyone is wanting sex. They look at ads in the back of your paper."

McAfee continues on to say:

I've found the more ugly the woman, the better the sex. This is the truth. I'm sorry, but it's absolutely true. No, really -- the best sex in the room is the librarian who hasn't had a date in 10 years. But [she's] read all the love books and all the [how-to] books, and is just waiting for someone to recognize them as this luscious sensual being. And if you do, you're in for the weekend of your life.

McAfee's antics are slated to be detailed in an upcoming graphic novel, and according to the Guardian, a potential movie via Warner Brothers.

In the meantime, we welcome the software millionaire's odd bits of advice, though there are hints McAfee is in on the secret, acknowledging his antics are prime for the media spotlight. Commenting on an upcoming Dateline show, in which he's featured in a segment, McAfee writes on his blog, "Should be a winner. I did my best crazy for them."

Then he backpedals a bit, writing "I suspect I do have a bit of crazy. But the story is nonetheless true."

Leans to the left (96 percent to Democrats, 4 percent to Republicans).

Leans to the left (98 percent to Democrats, 2 percent to Republicans). One of the wealthiest people on the planet, Bill Gates takes a key political stand that doesn't reflect his pocketbook interests: He supports <a href="http://thinkprogress.org/economy/2012/01/25/411283/bill-gates-taxes-justice/" target="_hplink">higher taxes on the rich</a>. He also backs <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/07/02/bill-gates-steve-ballmer-microsoft-marriage-washington_n_1644532.html" target="_hplink">marriage equality</a>.

Leans to the left (63 percent to Democrats, 37 percent to Republicans). While the former Google CEO's donations are more evenly distributed between the two parties than those of some other tech titans, Eric Schmidt may be the tech exec who is <a href="http://www.theatlanticwire.com/politics/2011/06/obamas-bromance-googles-eric-schmidt-out-hand/39225/" target="_hplink">coziest with the Obama administration</a>.

Among his sometimes eccentric libertarian views (he's a champion of having very smart kids not attend college), Peter Thiel supported Texas Rep. Ron Paul's run for president. Thiel has given the vast majority of his donations to super PAC <a href="http://www.youtube.com/user/EndorseLiberty/feed" target="_hplink">Endorse Liberty</a>, which runs TV and online spots backing Paul.

Leans to the left (100 percent to Democrats). <a href="http://influenceexplorer.com/search?query=steve+jobs&from_form=1" target="_hplink">According to Influence Explorer</a>, Steve Jobs didn't contribute to political campaigns, but that shouldn't be surprising: The late Apple CEO <a href="http://dealbook.nytimes.com/2011/08/29/the-mystery-of-steve-jobss-public-giving/" target="_hplink">didn't like donating to <em>anybody</em></a>, politician or not. His wife is more generous. In this electoral cycle, Laurene Powell Jobs has given exclusively to Democrats, including President Obama, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York and former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona. In 2010, Jobs began serving on <a href="http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2010/12/14/president-obama-announces-members-white-house-council-community-solution" target="_hplink">Obama's White House Council for Community Solutions</a>.

Leans to the left (100 percent to Democrats). Unlike his predecessor at eBay, onetime Republican California gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman, John Donahoe has donated all blue this election cycle. He gave $5,000 each to President Barack Obama's and New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand's reelection campaigns. He <a href="http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2010/12/14/president-obama-announces-members-white-house-council-community-solution" target="_hplink">currently serves on the president's White House Council for Community Solutions</a>, like Laurene Jobs. This despite having worked with Mitt Romney at Bain & Company and singing his old colleague's praises. "I think it is outstanding that he has been able to switch to the campaign mode as a politician, because it is certainly not an easy transition coming from the executive role in business," Donahoe <a href="http://dartmouthbusinessjournal.com/2012/03/early-values-shape-ebay-ceo%E2%80%99s-success/" target="_hplink">told the <em>Dartmouth Business Journal</em> in March 2012</a>.

Leans to the right (87 percent to Republicans, 13 percent to Democrats). Campaign finance advocates couldn't write a better example of political donations with intent. After AT&T, the largest U.S. mobile carrier, failed to get approval from the Democratic-controlled Federal Communications Commission for a merger with T-Mobile in December, Randall Stephenson up and <a href="http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-05-29/at-t-chief-fills-gop-accounts-after-democrats-hit-his.html" target="_hplink">donated the maximum legal amount to the Republican National Committee</a>. Talk about bitter.
