Jean Grey School @JeanGreySchool

Good afternoon! It’s time for the Biology 101 Live Tweet. Please take your seats.

Jean Grey School @JeanGreySchool
Make sure you subscribe to the Twitter List at twitter.com/#!/JeanGreySchool/jean-grey-school

Jean Grey School @JeanGreySchool
With that, please pay attention to your teacher @HenryMcCoyPhD!

Doctor Henry McCoy @HenryMcCoyPhD
Ah, good morning students! Apologies for not being in the classroom with resident students. I do have a good reason, though.

Doctor Henry McCoy @HenryMcCoyPhD

Your @JGSHeadmistress is infested with myriad miniature Brood running rampant. Not a normal Vice Principal job, but such is life!

Doctor Henry McCoy @HenryMcCoyPhD

Luckily, technology saves us from missing out on learning the wonders of Biology!

Doctor Henry McCoy @HenryMcCoyPhD
Instead of a normal roll call, I’m going to just ask you to state your name and that you are present, for the sake of visiting students.

Doctor Henry McCoy @HenryMcCoyPhD

Please add the hashtag #JGS_BIO101 to your present call tweet. My name is Hank McCoy and I’m present #JGS_BIO101

Rockslide @SANTORULES
I’M ROCKSLIDE AND TOTALLY HERE #JGS_BIO101

Quentin Quire @QQuire
The name's Quire. Quentin Quire. At your service. #JGS_BIO101

Broo @_Broodling_

The name's Quire. Quentin Quire. At your service. #JGS_BIO101

Quentin Quire @QQuire
Suck on that, nerd. #JGS_BIO101

Quentin Quire @QQuire
At the school, in space, in Sleazoid's mind controlling his little claws, I'm everywhere. Inset maniacal cackle here, etc.

Broo @_Broodling_
*sigh* This must be what earthlings call "one of those days".

Doctor Henry McCoy @HenryMcCoyPhD
Is that everyone? I'll give a few more moments.

Kid Gladiator @KidGladiator1
Gah! Stuck! Doesn't @JGSHeadmistress know that you're not supposed to swallow chewing gum! #JGS_BIO101

Rockslide @SANTORULES

SERIOUSLY lame, having a school that makes you attend CLASS in a FALLOUT SHELTER. That turtle didn't have quizzes during "Duck n Cover".

Doctor Henry McCoy @HenryMcCoyPhD

We’ll be getting to our lesson today, entitled “Oh, Spleen, You Are Wonderous, Yet Maligned in Pop Culture. Why?” But first, POP QUIZ!

Doctor Henry McCoy @HenryMcCoyPhD
Yes, it’s the Pop Quiz I promised last class. But at the Jean Grey School, we do things differently.

Doctor Henry McCoy @HenryMcCoyPhD

Here, to avoid cheating (and, well, just to show off) we do our Pop Quizzes Psychically. Thanks to Rachel Grey for facilitating this.

Anole @_Anole_

Pop Quizzes are THE WORST.

Rockslide @SANTORULES
@_Anole_ you SAID it.

Doctor Henry McCoy @HenryMcCoyPhD
No need to answer audibly. Prof Grey will be putting the questions into your minds and pulling the answers out. Muss and fuss eliminated

Rockslide @SANTORULES
Professor Grey doesn't have anything better to do than pick our brains for how dumb we are?

Idie @idie_okonkwo
@SANTORULES It's going to keep us honest. Cheating is a sin.

Doctor Henry McCoy @HenryMcCoyPhD

Question #1…

Glob Herman @GlobHerman
What is, “This blows?”

Doctor Henry McCoy @HenryMcCoyPhD

Excellent job, @_Broodling_. Hydrogen bonds ARE what hold DNA molecules together. +1

Rockslide @SANTORULES
@_Broodling_ Teacher's pet ravenous space beast.

Broo @_Broodling_
.@SANTORULES Your compliments don't sound like compliments sometimes, Santo. But know that I understand you anyway.

Doctor Henry McCoy @HenryMcCoyPhD
Sorry, @squideye, covalent bonds is incorrect. -1

Kid Gladiator @KidGladiator1

The condition of this digestive tract is deplorable! Strontian intestines are vastly superior! I could digest a whole pineapple if I wanted!

Doctor Henry McCoy @HenryMcCoyPhD
Oh, @SANTORULES, "bail bonds" is not correct. -1

Rockslide @SANTORULES
@HenryMcCoyPhD COME ON. I can't help what my brain thinks!

Anole @_Anole_
That answer sounded familiar. So hopefully that means it was somewhere in my head, right? Hope Professor Grey found it!

Doctor Henry McCoy @HenryMcCoyPhD

Question #2…

Doctor Henry McCoy @HenryMcCoyPhD
So close, @omgitzjojo, but “ribose” is not quite the correct sugar found in DNA. -1

Genesis @GenesisHero
I wonder if my mom and dad are reading this. I hope they don't see me get a wrong answer!

Doctor Henry McCoy @HenryMcCoyPhD
Your answer of “Splenda”, while charming, isn’t correct, @QuentinQuire.


Quentin Quire @QQuire
.@HenryMcCoyPhD That was just to distract you from what I was actually thinking.

Doctor Henry McCoy @HenryMcCoyPhD
This one seems to be quite difficult. @_Broodling_, you are correct in your answer of deoxyribose. +1 for you.

Glob Herman @GlobHerman
Professor Grey never seems to approve of the things she finds in my head. Like that thing about Spider-Woman that one-- Ahh, brain freeze!

Idie @idie_okonkwo
I like this method of testing. It reminds me of the day of judgment when our lives will be laid bare for all to see.

Doctor Henry McCoy @HenryMcCoyPhD
Question #3…

Doctor Henry McCoy @HenryMcCoyPhD
Anyone? Anyone other than @_Broodling_?

Doctor Henry McCoy @HenryMcCoyPhD
Okay, go ahead @_Broodling_.

Broo @_Broodling_
Nucleotides participate in cellular signaling and are incorporated into cofactors of enzymatic reactions, of course.

Broo @_Broodling_
I’m sure my fellow students had it on the tip of their minds, Professor.

Doctor Henry McCoy @HenryMcCoyPhD
 “@_Broodling_ Nucleotides participate in cellular signaling and are incorporated into cofactors of enzymatic reactions, of course” Well done

Anole @_Anole_
I hope Professor Grey wasn't in my head for the two seconds my mind drifted to Josh Hutcherson.

Kid Gladiator @KidGladiator1
I just killed four Brood with a half-digested shard of cauliflower. That has to be worth a high number of points, am I right?

Doctor Henry McCoy @HenryMcCoyPhD

Question #4… We’ll go a touch easier here.

Doctor Henry McCoy @HenryMcCoyPhD
Correct, @Miss_Yabs, @JanitorToad's blood pressure diagnosis is hypertension. +1

Rockslide @SANTORULES
If I wore one of those Doctor Head-Mirror things, would it reflect the answer Professor Grey was looking for back at her?

Anole @_Anole_
@SANTORULES You are why our school is always on the brink of losing its accreditation.

Rockslide @SANTORULES
@_Anole_ Aw, come on. It's worth a shot.

Doctor Henry McCoy @HenryMcCoyPhD
Incorrect, @KidGladiator1. We would not diagnose it as “normal weak earthling blood.” -1

Kid Gladiator @KidGladiator1

First, this quiz is nonsense as my answer is absolutely true. Secondly, I deserve extra points for breaking 3 Brood jaws mid-answer.

Glob Herman @GlobHerman
Wait, why does @KidGladiator1 get to run around inside Ms. Pryde and all I got was sucked down Toad’s intestines? Definitely not fair.

Idie @idie_okonkwo
@GlobHerman Don't be jealous. I am sure he is seeing how sinful she is in there.

Glob Herman @GlobHerman
@idie_okonkwo Yeah, like that doesn't sound totally awesome.

Doctor Henry McCoy @HenryMcCoyPhD
Question #5…

Doctor Henry McCoy @HenryMcCoyPhD

No, @GenesisHero, metalloenzymes are not what carry CO2 through the bloodstream. -1

Genesis @GenesisHero
I knew I should have thought “metalloprotein”!

Quentin Quire @QQuire
Man, there are a ton of alien hotties in this casino. And all Professor McStab's-a-Lot wants to do is gamble?

Doctor Henry McCoy @HenryMcCoyPhD
Incorrect, @ArmaanBabu, metalloprotein isn’t correct either. -1 It was a trick question to make sure you all were paying attention!

Doctor Henry McCoy @HenryMcCoyPhD
Correct, @_Broodling_. Carbaminohemoglobin IS the obvious answer and the vehicle for CO2 in the bloodstream.

Broo @_Broodling_
I wish I could help you all, but it's explicitly against the rules. I would love to put together a study group, though!

Doctor Henry McCoy @HenryMcCoyPhD
Last question. Question 6…

Rockslide @SANTORULES
OH--what I really need is a MAGNETO HELMET. A quiz-proof Magneto Helmet. And I would look WICKED.

Doctor Henry McCoy @HenryMcCoyPhD
Correct, @_Anole_! The three parts of the small intestine are duodenum, jejunum, ileum +1!

Anole @_Anole_
Yes! And I didn't even know I knew that!

Kid Gladiator @KidGladiator1
I knew that! I'm looking right at them!

Broo @_Broodling_
I've seen on television how much fun those can be!

Doctor Henry McCoy @HenryMcCoyPhD
You misthought “jejunum” as "jejejunum", @FoeApple. -1 Better luck next time!

Genesis @GenesisHero
I miss scantrons.

Doctor Henry McCoy @HenryMcCoyPhD
Hmmm… Didn’t quite get the results I was hoping with this Pop Quiz. I may need to adjust future quizzes.

Doctor Henry McCoy @HenryMcCoyPhD
Regardless, I think we’re on the road to having many published biologists in days to come!

Kid Gladiator @KidGladiator1
Gah! I just got bit by a Brood! Just a paltry little scratch... but I am now feeling a bit... strange.

Rockslide @SANTORULES
I am not joking. I am going to be rocking a Mags-style, quiz-buster from now on, see if I don't.

Idie @idie_okonkwo
Not my best grade, but at least I passed. On judgment day, the grades will be much harder to attain.

Anole @_Anole_
@idie_okonkwo Girl, you need to cut that out.

Glob Herman @GlobHerman

I least I didn't have to write nothing. I was gonna get a zero either way.

Doctor Henry McCoy @HenryMcCoyPhD

Thanks to all non-residential students who joined us today. This was lovely fun.

Doctor Henry McCoy @HenryMcCoyPhD
Now, there's a Brood biting down on my arm that needs attention. Adieu!

Bobby Drake @IceIceBobby
Just watched @HenryMcCoyPhD and Prof Grey administer a quiz and it sent shivers up my spine.

Doctor Henry McCoy @HenryMcCoyPhD
You know how hard it is to send shivers up Iceman's spine?

Jean Grey School @JeanGreySchool
Thanks to all our followers who joined in on today's Bio 101 Live Tweet! Our next one will be March 14th! Mark calendars!
