My Name is Jesse Pinkman.

I took this vo-tech class in high school, woodworking. I took a lot of vo-tech classes, because it was just big jerk-off, but this one time I had this teacher by the name of… Mr… Mr. Pike. I guess he was like a Marine or something before he got old. He was hard hearing. My project for his class was to make this wooden box. You know, like a small, just like a… like a box, you know, to put stuff in. So I wanted to get the thing done as fast as possible.

Who are you talking to right now? Who is it you think you see? Do you know how much I make a year? I mean, even if I told you, you wouldn’t believe it. Do you know what would happen if I suddenly decided to stop going into work?

Two-Thirds. Damn Right.

Has your condition worsened? Your medical condition, has it grown worse? Is there a ringing in your ears? Are you seeing bright lights or hearing voices? No, clearly you are not. No rational person would do as you have done. Explain yourself. Are you asking me if I ordered the murder of a child? Where is Pinkman now.

Quote MarkWe are a military family living overseas and struggling to provide Jewish education to our two children. We have tried to use the meager resources here and to provide Jewish lessons and culture in our home. It was not enough. ShalomLearning has been a fabulous asset in our quest to keep our children’s Jewish identity intact in a non-­Jewish environment and to strengthen their understanding of Jewish values and history. The cost, while reasonable, was a stretch for our budget. We cannot thank you enough for helping us to provide this valuable resource to our children. Please know how incredibly grateful we are for your donation.

Hank Says

So things are quiet, y’know? Not a lot of crystal on the streets right now. Well, we keep hearing a name. Heisenberg. Lately pretty much every dimebagger we come across. Yeah, I know. Maybe it’s a tweaker urban legend. Still, somebody somewhere is cooking that big blue we keep finding. Come here… closer… Asshole.

Skyler Says

Where did that come from? And why was it so damn good? His color is better, you know his energy and uh… he’s even more… physical. Well…sexual. Umm… frisky, actually? I mean that’s gotta be a good sign right? Could that mean that the chemo is working?

Frequently Asked Questions

How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

A so-called ‘woodchuck’ (correctly speaking, a groundhog) would chuck — that is, throw — as much as the woodchuck in question was physically able to chuck (ibid.) if woodchucks in general had the capability (and, presumably, the motivation) to chuck wood.

What is zero divided by zero?

Imagine that you have zero cookies and you split them evenly among zero friends. How many cookies does each person get? See? It doesn’t make sense. And Cookie Monster is sad that there are no cookies, and you are sad that you have no friends.

What came first: the chicken or the egg?

Well, you can set an egg timer, but you can’t set a chicken timer. I don’t know if that helps.
