It's not really gunner until that person starts hacking YOUR laptop to steal your notes. Pwned by pretty pink benzyl laptop.
I want to note that the groups on the laptop are not all benzyl groups. There are some cyclohexanes, cyclohexenes and cyclopentenes.

(Who's the gunner now?)

Don't forget the cyclopropyl groups!

You're only a gunner if you can think of mechanisms to form those structures. :laugh:

Wow I want that! Does it come with matching scrubs that I can wear everyday to pre-med classes? How about a matching surgical cap?!!!!

You're only a gunner when you know the mechanisms, and then tell other people an incorrect mechanism on purpose!

I try to put orgo out of my mind. It was on my field test Monday and I was like, "Crap, I don't remember any of this."

+1 just being smart, educated, interested in what you're learning does NOT make you a gunner. You have to actively put people down i.e. misinformation (this is where "gunning them down" fits in) to make yourself look better to be a gunner. Just performing is not the same as gunning

Then you, my friend, are quite the gunner. There are definitely a couple of AZTs on there.
Not unless you can point out some nitrogens on there to me...

They haven't labeled any of the non-carbon atoms, but that doesn't mean it's not AZT. It just means it's artistic. Check out the general structure; it definitely fits. You'll also notice that all the other molecules are HIV antiretroviral drugs too. Efavirenz, lamivudine, etc.

EDIT: In fact, I just did a little research. The cover design is by Bruce Mau, and is inspired by the science behind fighting AIDS (it's one of the Dell (Product) Red designs, as you can see). Check it out.
