Cabbages are still alive after they’re picked. For a while. They take in CO2 and release oxygen. Not only that, but cabbage (and other plants) have sleep cycles! They produce chemicals at certain times to repel insects at times when insects are more likely.
Hey! I participated in sketch month again. I wrote 30 sketches over the course of one month. At the start of the month I was working at a great pace. My best yet. One a day. The last week it all fell apart and I had to write 4 in the last 2 days. Quality dropped around that time too. Still I had some decent ones.
I keep reading recaps and reviews on the internet this morning about how the ending to Breaking Bad was a happy one because Walt killed his enemies and (probably) got money to his son. And some have criticized the ending for being too neat a triumph.
As Anthony said, SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS
I agree and disagree with Anthony. It did feel like a happy ending! Just not in the traditional sense. I’ve spent about 6 years following Walt, and this was HIS happy ending. He thinks he’s gotten money to his family (I find it hard to believe that will work out). He’s got fame, or at least infamy. He’s finally stopped lying to himself about why he broke bad. He got revenge on his enemies. He confronted his past. He’s not going to jail. His student lived up to his potential and he was able to save Jesse. Everything’s great for Walt!
But, Anthony is still right. The world he is leaving is not a part of that happy ending. He ruined countless lives, including his family. Jesse got the worst of it. He is a broken shell of a human. I can’t believe that anyone thinks this is a happy ending for Jesse. The guy who was unable to handle the death around him was driven to killing someone up close and personal. Plus… there is no way that he outrunning the law. His life is over.
Walt was selfish and got his happy ending. Cancer didn’t get him. He got to live on his terms. Everyone else is left in the mess he created.
