Watching The Wire on my laptop… wasn’t able to watch it when it was airing on HBO because I didn’t have HBO at the time, so I started watching it when Season 5 was almost over – love the show… anyway – I’m watching an episode where a child is asking Wallace how to do this word problem, and Wallace tells him to do it in his head – after a few wrong guesses, Wallace gets mad then relates the problem to selling drugs and does a whole word problem in that language — the kid answers the problem in three seconds. Wallace says “How the F’ you able to keep the count right but you not able to do the book problem.” — he says “the count not right they F you up.” So much in that scene.
