"Now, I'm not asking you to draw something worthy of the Maryland Institute College of Art. Actually, if you did ask MICA how to draw a cell, you would probably end up with something like this--" (draws a parallelogram on the board) "--and here's the nucleus--" (draws a blobby half-circle floating outside of the parallelogram) "--and the Golgi apparatus--" (spiky scribble hanging off the paralellogram) "--and here is the cell's internalized angst." (tiny angry circles in the parallelogram) -Horner

"I went to MIT. And I can tell you that you are all just as smart as the students there. Well, a little better at English, and a lot worse at math..." -Horner, attempting to give a pep talk

Have I mentioned that I love the biology department here yet?

He is. He's like sixty, and rumor is he entered as an undergrad and just never left.

Heeee, awesome, indeed! :D

Bio profs with a good sense of humor are the best. I had one back when I was in college, who was as hilarious as he was competent. :D For example, during a lecture on pollination, he burst in the classroom, wearing a cape and a mask, calling himself "Bot-man" (short for "Botany Man"), and on the slide projector, he had a picture of a "damsel in distress" caught in a Venus flytrap. XDDDDDDDDDDD

xD That's fantastic! I don't think you could get any of my professors to do that. Unless you paid them.

I just had my second Bio class so far, and I already like the profs more than most of my other profs. It's so sad. xD

Oh, the artsier among us here hop down to MICA for lessons and/or art supplies all the time. Doesn't stop us from poking fun, though. xD
