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

+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

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.
