  • It could be Technophobia (from Greek "art, skill, craft" and phobos, "fear") which is the fear or dislike of advanced technology or complex devices, especially computers. Although there are numerous interpretations of technophobia, they become more complex as technology continues to evolve. Or since he does not even have electricity in his house he could suffer from Electrophobia which is is the fear of electricity. The origin of the word electro is Greek (meaning electricity) and phobia is Greek (meaning fear). Electrophobia is considered to be a specific phobia,. Since he is afraid of going out side he more then likely also suffers from Agoraphobia which is often a progressive phobia, and may eventually lead to a fear of leaving the house. However, it is the panic attack, rather than the act of being in public, that is the cause of the fear. He more then likely has two or all three of these., Electrophobia, Technophobia and Agoraphobia. however he might suffer from Electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS) which is a claimed sensitivity to electromagnetic fields, to which negative symptoms are attributed. EHS has no scientific basis and is not a recognised medical diagnosis. Edit (Coming Soon)

  • "Jimmy meets with the Kettlemans at a diner called Loyolas as a means of diverting them from discovering he operates out of a crummy office in the wash room of a nail salon. It's easy enough to forget this is the same diner where Mike and Jesse share an uncomfortably silent meal in Cornered, Season 4, Episode 6 of Breaking Bad. Further, Mike and Lydia meet there in "Madrigal" (Season 5, Episode 2), when she presents him with the infamous 11 names." Read more here. Edit (Coming Soon)

  • Jimmy's ultimate strategy was to get under Chuck's skin in the hope that Chuck would reveal how he truly felt about Jimmy in a fit of rage. He did this in two ways:

    1) He invited Rebecca to the hearing and revealed to her Chuck's "condition", something Chuck went to great lengths to hide from her

    2) He had Huell plant a fully charged battery on him which Chuck did not feel for an hour and 43 minutes. This made it appear to the court that Chuck didn't really have a condition, that is was all psychological and that Chuck was mentally incompetent. Chuck was clearly flustered and insulted at the idea that he might be mentally unstable.

    Upon realizing that the entire court thought Chuck was crazy he snapped and went on his rant which only helped Jimmy's case.

    All of this did two things that worked in Jimmy's favor:

    1) It raised suspicion that Chuck was mentally incompetent and opened the possibility that Chuck really did mix up those number (1261 to 1216) and it also gave merit to the idea that Jimmy said what he said on the confession tape to make Chuck feel better.

    2) It exposed the fact that Chuck was out to get Jimmy and wanted him to lose his law degree for personal reasons (as a kid Jimmy stole money from his fathers store, their parents loved Jimmy more, etc.) which raises suspicion that Chuck entrapped Jimmy by tricking him into confessing to a crime he didn't commit.

    All of this more than raised reasonable doubt that Jimmy forged those documents and reduced Jimmy's sentence to a years suspension as he was only punished for breaking down Chuck's door. Edit (Coming Soon)
