Bonus Pre-meeting quote: ``But, Kat, where's your sense of... of... I don't know what it's supposed to be a sense of, but where is it?!?'' -ARM, distraught that KHA wouldn't want a Boris calendar.

MITSFS Meeting Minutes

Friday, November 14, 2003

MITSFS meeting called to order, 1700 SST, Ed Keyes, President and Skinner, presiding; Kat Allen, Onseck, recording.

Minutes read.

Motion: Condemn the minutes for not including the phrase ``(censored)''
Passes 12-0-2+Spehn

Discussion of the Great and Awesome Responsibility of the Onseck BING!

Committee Reports


Our Finboard report has been submitted


SFBC has a check in the mail, and other people have checks on the board.


Isn't it great that the LHE can make three reports?

Commend the LHE for counting to two.
Fails 3-3+devilduck-Spehn


Has some new books, inc. ``Children of Cthulu'', which may be like ``Children of Dune'', but we hope not.

Motion to condemn the short story collection for requiring instructions
Motion Passes 6-Instructions Bad-1+Spehn

We've been getting lots of donations.

Contradictory motions concerning JFC's laziness in not carrying the donation boxes cancel for lack of seconds, in a startling display of apathy appropriate to the subject.

Motion to condemn the seconds for being lacking
Passes 5-2-2+Spehn

Other Committees

HassleComm and AlohaLenscomm have done nothing.


The leak is back.

War Council

Yup, we're at war. More interesting news will follow when the ASA Room Allocations Committee publish their results. Apparently, people are preparing to appeal the not-yet decided decisions, gaming the appeals board to prepare for the expected appeals.


Is still planning on ordering stuff from The Library Store. We're giving up on APO for the Membership Cards. Ed will order them.

Motion to commend Kat for having toys (In this case, a button saying, `` Come on, people, I can only do six things at once, and one of them HAS to be breathing'')
Passes 7-0-fowl+Spehn


Old Business

Pretty-much all got covered in the committee reports.

Discussion of Computer Programmers vs Serial Killers, and the difference between serial killers and mass murderers:
``I think to be a serial killer you have to kill one, wait a while, and kill another one. If you order the Extra Value Meal, you're just a mass murderer'' -ARM


New Business

Motion to Officially Note the Absence of Malcom and the Presence of People Who are Not Often Here.
Passes 4-0-1+Spehn

The shelves have a third coat. That probably means they'll be installed soon.

Motion: The War Council develop a Banana-Firing Rail-gun with which to seize some more space for MITSFS
Chickens 3-1-1+Spehn

Motion: Get the War Council some help. Fails for lack of a second and a mandate.

Motion to provide the War Council with a Mandate and a Banana. Passes 6-0-4+Spehn BING!

Future Business

Meeting adjourned, 1732 SST.

Respectfully submitted,
Kat Allen, Onseck
