A self-aware episode of Breaking Bad would be about seven years old right now. Where does that
fall in the spectrum?But how old is that in AI years?

hydrometer to che...

Normally that is what I'd say, but all the other evidence suggested it has fermented much
lower. Didn't taste sweet, repitching didn't help. I even added a little yeast to the hydro
test jar to see wh...
