      Should have kept the clips where Walt teaches chemistry to Jesse, who is lowkey enjoying himself and is always amazed by the results of science. Even if it is about meth, Walt still manages to always turn it back to his passion in chemistry.

      True but I think he paused at 2:18 specifically because he was going to name off an example from the top of his head but then remembered methamphetamine is a chiral molecule so he staggered.

      @hotelmario510 being troubled and bitter doesn't make him not a nice man. You can tell by the first season that he meant well, loved his family, and wanted his chemistry students to succeed. And he definitely wouldn't be comfortable with the idea of doing bad things. This whole show was about him transforming and becoming desensitized to evil things around him, hence that's how he "breaks bad."

      This is a misinterpretation of Walt's character, I feel. We later find out in the show that Walt was never really a nice man. He's a deeply troubled and bitter man who is upset that he missed out on the wealth and power his colleagues at the chemical company ended up achieving. Becoming a drug lord was his way of getting that power he desperately craved. Walt didn't become Heisenberg, he always was Heisenberg. Entering the drug trade just gave him the balls to be as ruthless as he always wanted to be.

    Lesson 1: “the study of change”-growth, decay, transformation. The story of Walter White, summarized and prefaced in its first episode.
    Lesson 2: “chirality”-how two things that look the same do not always behave the same. Walter White and Heisenberg: reflections of each other, but very different. One is a mild mannered school teacher and the other is a ruthless drug lord.
    Lesson 3: “rapid chemical reactions”-how even the most unassuming of elements (like a 50-year old school teacher), when under the right conditions (like a terminal cancer diagnosis), can trigger an explosion of energy (Heisenberg’s two-year reign of terror).
    Lesson 4: “carbon”-how a scientific genius was shunned and left penniless by his employers: exactly how Walt perceives his relationship with Elliot and Gretchen, and the root of all his simmering bitterness and pride.
    It’s…fascinating, really.

      Wiseass Skeleton 2 күн бұрын

      It gets even more insane when you extrapolate the lessons to the show's 5 seasons.
      Lesson 1: 'Chemistry: the study of change.'
      Season 1: From the first few minutes of the first episode, Walt's life changes when he gets his cancer diagnosis. Then Hank shows him a meth lab. Then he has to kill 2 guys in self-defense. The first season is a documentation process of the start of his life drastically changing. In chemistry, a lot of changes are gradual, but once triggered it's very hard to stop them.
      Lesson 2: 'Chirality.'
      Season 2: In a lot of ways, the second season mirrors the first season. Walter White's motivation hasn't changed, Jesse is still a dumbass junkie, Skyler is still pregnant, and nobody suspects anything yet. The big difference is that, by later on in the season, Walt's 'boss' has been replaced; Tuco is gone, and Gus is now selling Walt's meth. In many ways, Gus is a mirror of Walt: a seemingly meek, bald old man with glasses that is always planning something and trying to stay a step ahead of everybody around him. The example Walt gave of chirality is thalidomide; like the thalidomide in his example, the differences between Walt and Gus haven't really manifested... yet.
      Lesson 3: 'Rapid chemical reactions.'
      Season 3: This is when the whole train starts to really go off the rails. Skyler learns about Walt's meth cooking and it fractures their relationship, which never recovers. Walt makes a few half-hearted attempts to quit cooking, but he ultimately just bumbles around and makes everything worse in his paranoia and insecurity, ultimately leading to Hank getting shot nearly to death, a civil war erupting between Fring's and Eladio's sides of the cartel, and Walt running over Gus's 2 dealers and then having his other chemist (and friend) Gale shot, which lands him firmly and irrevocably in shit creek.
      Lesson 4: 'Carbon.'
      Season 4: Walt wasn't teaching anymore by Season 4; that could be argued for the 4th lesson as well. He spent a significant portion of it discreetly bitching about his failings in life and pining for what could have been, which is exactly how Season 4 plays out: the slipping mask falls off, and we see start to see Walt for who he truly is: a petty little man, desperately trying to take control of his life by destroying everything around him. He bitches at Gus when the latter comes to see him about Gale, he buys a gun, he gets his shit kicked in by Mike for trying to get him to betray Gus, he takes Bogdan's framed first dollar bill and buys a soda with it, he contemplates having Jesse killed at least once, he memes at his wife so hard that she flees the state, he poisons a little kid, he has a screaming temper tantrum when he finds Skyler gave away his money, and he sets off a bomb in an old folks' home.
      Lesson 5: Silence.
      Season 5: In the last lesson, Walt has stopped caring about anything but himself. He doesn't do anything he's supposed to, and shortly after he gets fired, then burns the last bridge he has by trying to seduce the principal like an idiot. In Season 5, Walt feels like he can do whatever he wants now that Gus is dead. He could quit here and now; instead he proceeds to rob a train, have a gang of skinheads kill every remaining witness to his crimes, shoot Mike for insulting him, and proudly embrace his 'Heisenberg' persona... right up until it gets him robbed of $70 million and his brother-in-law's brains blown out. Then he has another temper tantrum, sells Jesse into torture and slavery, nearly stabs his wife, and flees across the country to escape the cops. His last act of defiance gets him shot before he can be arrested, and he dies a penniless pariah that nobody - not even his wife and son - mourn over.
      Okay maybe a few of those are reaching but there's definitely parallels in at least the first and last lessons.

    That intro clip when I saw his smile and excitement I knew then that Walter LOVED chemistry deeply, he could've used that passion to chase an amazing career but he chose the far more noble route of teaching it.
    Yeah not every kid will become a chemist but every heart he does touch can and will become someone great. I love the actor, he really captured that deep love of his topic his character would love too.

      I think by the time he was teaching he already did chase an amazing career; Walt let go of Gray Matter, then life caught up. He could’ve started another company or pursued a college teaching gig, but as we learn in the pilot, the guy is working two jobs, with a baby on the way. So he got stuck somewhere down the line and teaching is just there to pay the bills. We can’t deny how passionate he is about chemistry, but I don’t think he chose this career and I don’t think he’d stick with it if it wasn’t a good cover for his drug dealing.

    This scene is great because it lays out what the show itself is about; a study in how Walter changes and how it affects everyone around him, just like a chemical reaction. It’s also a study of matter, or in society’s terms: morality. We tend to label people as wholly good or bad and those terms define what they are, just like chemical makeup defines matter. The show portrays everyone as having varying amounts of goodness and badness based on the various situations as they change. Very brilliantly done

    Man as a near college grad boy do I miss the high school days where lectures were as fun and exciting as they were. There was always at least 50 fun facts you'd learn either related, partially related, or just totally unrelated to the subject at hand and unlike college professors who just use the same pre-made lessons and power-points it always felt like the best of high school teachers always went the extra mile to make meaningful connections between the class material and the students. Probably my best teacher was my honors Chemistry teacher, he taught the class at a similar level to an introductory college chemistry course, no reference tables, no formula sheets, labs that took days to finish. All I'm saying is if you're in high school still and have a good teacher appreciate all the lessons they give you like serious don't take it for granted a lot of what I learned back in those days helped me to become a much better student for my college years. You'll appreciate it when you get a crappy Ad-junct professor who can't teach and doesn't even make their own notes.

I mean clearly the missing school lab equipment that would be specifically used to make meth around the time Walter the chemistry genius asked to go on a ride along to a meth lab was taken by Hugo, the math just adds up. Can't wait to see the rest of the show to see the conclusion of who is the Heisenberg!

    Unfortunately, my chemistry teacher was a bit boring and not as engaging when it came to teaching like he was a bit bored of it himself, BUT when the paperwork was there and done, you could see that he was a bit like us, finally being allowed to actually see chemistry happen.
    As a last day of class gift for some of his students, he created some faux-gold plated pennies in class using the ventilation chamber in class. I got one, but I think I lost it somewhere.

      @Luke Teaching absolutely needs real world examples, preferably interesting ones, not just basic theories. Even if only for the ever present "why so we even need to know this" question most students have.
      From my experience, students are usually more interested when you go on a tangent as well. Partly this might be because they don't feel like it's stuff they are forced to learn for tests, but I feel like it's mostly because it's just interesting to learn about real life examples and not just dry formulas and theory.

    He showed with a laser how distances are on a DVD disk. The reflections came on the table.
    In an advanced course he smoked a cigarette into a chamber and showed stuff with lasers as well.
    He was so good, without him I wouldn't have graduated from high school.
    Later on I heard he got elected to the best physics teacher in the country I live in.

    I am doing a master's in chemical engineering, and I thought the moment at 2:17 was brilliant. Here, Walt stumbled because he presumably thought of methamphetamine (given the show's context) as an example. Methamphetamine itself is an isomer! The S-methamphetamine isomer is significantly more potent than the R-methamphetamine isomer - an excellent piece of chemical trivia embedded in the show! Also, I believe that in a later episode, Walt says to Gus that his product is enantiomerically pure, and not racemic, hence another reason why his product was so sought after (as it contained only the more potent 'S' isomer). Bravo, Vince!

      @John Smith You use the proper precursor. That's it. A pseudoephedrine-based cook would yield only the dextro isomer whereas a P2P cook would yield half and half so it would have to go through another chemical process if the P2P method was used.

      @RAGE QU1T The rule of thumb whenever taking amphetamine or methamphetamine is to always do the dextrorotatory isomer (pure dextroamphetamine or pure dextro-methamphetamine) if you can. If that's what you mean by "trying something". I have a telehealth prescription for pure dextroamphetamine aka Dexedrine. Adderall is only 75% dextroamphetamine though and 25% levo.

      @mechadoggy Nope. DRA probably meaning 'dopamine releasing agent' in this context because they're both 'releasing agents' and reuptake inhibitors at the same time. Amphetamines are certainly not "antagonists". That would be more so caffeine; which is an adenosine (receptor) antagonist. Most drugs are seemingly agonists though. And they agonize (or antagonize) certain *receptor* sites, not the neurotransmitters themselves, even though it's basically the same idea.
