Tuesday's Psychology Trivia: What Music Should Breaking Bad's Walter White Be Listening To?

Thought for the Day: Somehow the summer is quickly slipping away! It seems that I can't keep up with all the things I want to accomplish before fall arrives, including a building project at home. It has gotten me a bit off schedule, but here is Tuesday's Psychology Trivia question and a bonus question for fans of Breaking Bad as well, on time!

What kind of music improves mood and reduces depression?
a) upbeat, happy music,
b) sad music,
c) rock & roll, or
d) classical.

If you get the answer to the above question, you will also know what kind of music Walter White should be listening to. I am probably the most unlikely fan of AMC's award winning series,  Breaking Bad, since I hate violent movies.  However, I got hooked early on to the program's well written portrayal of how a likeable, well-intentioned teacher, who thought he was dying from cancer, could become a drug lord. I walk out of the room during violent scenes, but find the series' twists and turns fascinating. So here's a bonus quesion for those of you following the final season of Breaking Bad:

If a psychologist was writing Breaking Bad's final episodes:
a) Walter White (Bryan Cranston) would abandon his family, escape to Belize, with a face replacement and pay millions for experimental cancer treatments;
b) Walter's wife, Skylar, (played by Anna Gunn) would be arrested and incarcerated as an accomplice to her husband who skipped town;
c) Walter White, Jr. (played by RJ Mitte) would become addicted to blue meth and try to overdose when he learns of his father's secret life;
d) First, Jesse Pinkman (played by Aaron Paul) would become an addiction counselor and then he would found a ministry that would give exorbitant amounts of money to recovering addicts who follow him on his television channel, The Blue MethMyth Discovery;
e) Walter would build the Starship Enterprise for 12.4 Billion Dollars* and travel to a distant planet. With the help of Russian scientists he would build and colonize the 1st human outpost in space for him, his family and Jesse. They would all live not so happily ever after with a tv spin off called Star Trek on Meth following their adventures in outer space;
f) None of the above;
g) All of the above.

Come back on Thursday for the answers to these trivia questions.

* Estimated cost to build Starship Enterprise
