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.
I guess when I said cool what I really meant was the younger generation. 15-25ish might think walt is a bad ass or has turned into one. And with the younger generation they seem to like the whole BA type of person and in a way look up to him.. So I just see killing him off and not having a happy ending as the most likely solution to how this one will end.
