Motion to declare Margaret (who won the costume contest) MITSFS's Commisar-General passes by Skinnerial decree. She won a 300-point Warhammer 40k army; unfortunately, about half of it is on back order. Once it is assembled, she wants to use it to take over the UA and the ASA.

Motion to introduce "woof" to unite the divers threads in our warp passes.

Motion to set fire to the loom a la David Brin chickens.
