I don't know about it being cool. I have a wife and kids and a regular job and I think life can be stressful at times. If I think about Walt's life in real terms I cannot imagine the stress of worrying not just about going to jail or my personal safety but the safety of my family. I don't want to be trite but there's literally not an amount of money that would make me want to experience Walt's stresses in real life.
I actually would go the other way and I think that Gilligan has done an amazing job of showing how utterly terrible that life style would be. I realize different people see it different ways but cool and entertaining to watch? The best. Real life? No thanks.
