What's with all these Breaking Bad comparisons? As far as we can tell, the
only thing 74-year-old BU prof Irina Kristy has in common with Walter White is
that she's a teacher....whose main extracurricular activity was cooking up meth...
in her home....ohh, ok, there it is. Is
it messed up that when we first read of the charges Kristy is facing in yesterday's Boston Globe report we were sort of....impressed? Not impressed by crystal
meth as a drug (from what we understand, that shit will eff. you.
up. And not in a good way. In a twitchy, open-sored, rotting teeth,
sucking off dudes under railroad trestles for a quick fix sort of way)
but just sort of floored that this septuagenarian has been running a
hardcore drug operation out of her Somerville kitchen in between preparing lesson plans. Granted, she reportedly had
some help from her son, 29-year-old Grigory Genkin, but we're inclined
to think that Kristy was the brains behind this thing. Just look at
her. Criminal mastermind all the way.
we could wax ridiculous about a geriatric math teacher-cum-drug-cooker
for longer than anyone would care to read, we're going to let those who
knew her best....her students...give you the salient points. From what
we gather, she may have been right to explore other career
options. Excerpts from RateMyProfessors.com:Sometimes I wondered if she was speaking any language
Her grading is pretty good, however, no one can understand what she is talking about...Very weird and frightening woman. Please, run for your mathematically inclined lives.AVOID THIS PROFESSOR AT ALL COSTS.And perhaps our favorite:She's not aware of her surroundings because she almost tripped over a ball. ??Blame it on the fumes, kids. And study hard if you don't want to end up like a character on Breaking Bad...or your former math teacher.
