(Onseck's Note: All the current undergrads voted against this)
Y says, on the subject of Hitler-bugs, that all US Submarines had to be named after the common names of fish. They began running out of names, and so made a deal with someone in <field of naming things>, that the scientist would choose a good name for a submarine and give it as the common name to a fish which only had a Latin name.
Motion to commend custom-named fishes.
Motion to get the Society a fish tank with geneng'd glow in the dark
Fails for lack of a second, but spawns intense discussion about us already having too much water, and about the other glow-in-the-dark things we could have.
