Committee Reports

War Council

Altair-4: Real Soon Now, and then when it's done it'll be even Faster. We'll get a code to the SAO as soon as possible.

I can't believe it's not Asbestos!

There will be an abatement. It'll have some warning and we'll get a chance to influence the date a bit.

Maybe we can engineer something cool to get new rooms out of this?


Yup, there are reimb-- reimbur-- um, money. We now owe SFBC even more money. Soon!


We've got a frosh! She's got a SIPB temporary tattoo, which makes her even more disturbing than most of our cruft.

Activities midway next week.


Skinnerial Standard Time change the week after next week--that is, the tenth.

George Flynn is feeling better and walking again; the card's been sent to him. He's in Wingate at Brighton, for anyone who wants to visit or contact him.

Jade will be the Surgeon. No training, but willing to go seek it out and get it.


Pseudo: still a backlog at the New England Mobile Bookfair.


Jourcomm. Frosh. Rescheduling. Canals. New England Mobile.


Old Business

New detail about physics: some guy has a trick with the math involving the famous two-slit experiment to figure out which slit a particle went through, even though it's still generating an interference pattern on the wall.


New Business

The Banana Split is 100 years old.

U. Queensland is trying to build a banana-based power generator. We chicken out from commending them 15-0-6 plus Spehn. Yes, 15-0-6.

Skinner cannot count at all, count at all, count at all. Skinner cannot count at all beyond one bloody stump.

Skinner cannot count at all, count at all, count at all. Skinner cannot count at all beyond two bloody stumps.

Skinner cannot count at all, count at all, count at all. Skinner cannot count at all beyond three bloody stumps.


Future Business

Primitive gas masks sucked.

There are parents here1. Yech.

``Kill em all'' passes 7-0-3 plus Spehn.

A motion to kill them all and use them as power for the vast banana and parent-powered generator which will fuel the War Council and the vast War Machines led by space marine terminator frusterated author commisar Margaret passes 8-4-3 plus Spehn.

Miller motion. 3-4-0 plus Spehn.

Except that was a matrix vote with a determinant of 24, so that fails with a determinant of 24.

``Look, a virus!''

``Look, a banana colored virus!'' chickens.

Ed will be more theftcomm in the future.

``The Albanian word for banana is, um, banane'' passes 11-0-0 plus Spehn.
