How does it feel to know that you'll never be as good at Chemistry as Walter?
You found yield based on equilibrium reactions in a lab most likely. Walter was doing that exact thing to find yield most likely in a non lab environment with all the other added pressures to make something that is very high in concentration. Gl doing this irl.
>he was so good
nah, he was fuckin retarded because his resume says he was a co-founder of a multi-billion dollar company and he has a PhD in chemistry and he thought the only job he could get was teaching high school. not to mention the massive network of friends he has. he could have landed another job easy.
thats a factor too. it says "proton radiography" on his diploma in the 1st episode. sounds like pchem to me. still, no excuses with those connections he had. maybe it was the pride that did him in in the end...
wait a second.
>mfw I just realized his pride ruined his career as a chemist earlier in his life, and he was too proud to give up cooking meth in the end which resulted in his death
very well written show.
They even show it in a few episodes where his billionaire buddies offer him a job at Gray Matter. He outright refuses it because he felt that he'd rather cook meth on his own than accept a job as a charity.
no, making meth isn't all high-school shit. maybe the shake and bake methods are, but for potent, quality shit and good yields you're going to at least know some 2nd or 3rd year undergrad chem in the form of birch reductions.
Please don't add me to your watchlist NSA/DEA.
His son has MS, he basically gave up ambition to focus on keeping his family on the right road. That's the entire point, he's catching up on backed-up ambition and validating himself. We all know he's a fucking lame-o given his credentials. That's why he went insane
PhD student in pharmaceutical science here. I'm ok at chemistry, not great, but in industry you don't have to be great, you don't even have to be that good, you have to know how to get a drug on the market. Walter should've just gone into industry, seriously. Even as an independent consultant, industry pays quite well.
