    In season 3, there's a flashback of when Walt gave Jesse the money to buy the RV, and instead he spent it on partying and only had about a grand left. Combo said he could get an RV for that much, and they ended up stealing his Mom's, unbeknown to Jesse, who didn't realize whose house it was.

    My question is, if Combo and Jesse were like best friends, why didn't Jesse know where Combo lived?

    Combo was an adult, therefore most likely didn't live with his mother.

    A logical argument, but when Hank came to question his Mother, he also checked out Combo's room.

    ...ok well ill see your hole and raise you 1 vagina crack. back when walt fucked up the guy and girl speed freaks who stole his crank, when he tracked them down they had an atm machine in the house. walt broke into the machine and spent some of that money to buy his alarm clock. that purchase and the serial numbers copy of the atm money are or could be a problem for walt depending on what the writers do.

    As a good for nothing user he was probably in and out of his mom's house as his habit dictated. Stupy could attest to this. :hhh:

    Also there was a picture of him and Jesse in his room. So even if he didn't live there at the time he died, he had lived there at some point during his friendship with Jesse.

    ...walter, when he fucked up the people who stole his crank, he took money from the atm machine he broke into and bought an alarm clock. that money is traceable.

    why didn't walt think up a halfway decent excuse for the money he was making instead of throwing away his family?

    I guess it depends on how close they were as friends. Seems like Jesse was closer to skinny pete and Badger than he was to combo. Also, If I was living with my mother as a grown adult I wouldn't want my friends coming over to my mom's house to party, etc. I wouldn't even want to admit that I was living with my mother. Maybe Jesse had a vague idea of where he lived :dontknow:

    I used to think that ATMs actually made the money before they spit it out. I thought the sounds were it printing.
