    Oh, and get a used Winnebago !!

    Methlymine smells like dead fish wrapped in Gym socks so you'll need to move out to a remote location to conduct your " experiments."

    Maybe I've been watching too much TV...
    Breaking Bad is the best reality TV show ever.

    I'm making about three times as much today but, that's because I'm young and I was really young in '08.

    I went on a late night marathon a few months ago, and have watched every episode except for the last few. Love it!

    Personally? I graduated high school, so I guess that counts for something.

    But, as for my family, no, we're not doing better. The great recession really ****ed over my dad's line of work. Life is still pretty comfortable though since my dad was an avid saver and really frugal when possible. It will get better.
