MITSFS Meeting Minutes
Friday, July 14, 2006
MITSFS meeting called to order, 1700 SST, Kevin Riggle, President and Skinner, presiding; Kat Allen, Onseck, recording.
A motion to approve the minutes as adequately entertaining fails for lack of a second.
A motion to have the minutes repeated at the same frequency as the penguin joke chickens 4-1-5+Spehn
The book is actually ``the rough guide to sci-fi movies''
``Two penguins were floating along an iceberg. One of them said to the other '
(Commentary on whether KR had binged or not is resolved without binging on JM. He does not make a good noise.)
The Onseck will mail the Neo-Opsis cheque ``today'', for some definition of ``today'' that may or may not include it actually going on its way.
JM notes that we have a note saying ``Copying Receits, back in 5 minutes'', and wonders why the generic ``Back in 5 minutes'' note wasn't good enough. BTS observes that, in addition, ``receits'' is not ``receipts'', and ends up throwing away the sign after JM tries putting quotes around the word ``receits''.
The status of the Diaspora is waiting for transit and storage arrangements.
We're also waiting on buffer space, which would happen if we got rid of the unsorted books.
``You're not allowed to open the NC-17 boxes anyway''-BTS ``Hey! Wait!''
A motion to acquire booth babes for the Activities Midway fails for lack of a second.
No one present has researched warehouses yet. BTS will write up a report for the Skinner over email. ``It will be a 100 page power point document, using proprietary document formats so Open Office can not open it, with embedded WMFs so
An Albanian motion on Malcolm fails due to lack of a second and complaints that KHA is over-sensitive to puns.
``Most Caucasians sunburn at a normal rate, because that's how I define a normal rate. Kat is especially fair, because the sun shines and she burns''
Motion to send Jamie to sensitivity training for skin tone re-education passes 9-0-0+Spehn
``Use of a forward-looking time frame is against the Campus Sensitivity Policies''
A new Dr Who is coming out--not sure if it's a movie or a TV show. Apparently they have a budget.
In the future, there may be Skinner Rites. Right now there are two files, both probably incomplete.
In the Past, ``A Scanner Darkly'' came out. KR says it was good.
In The Future, ``Monster House'' will come out. It's claymation horror, with a house that eats people.
Pirates of the Carribean broke the opening weekend and opening day records, but not the inflation-adjusted record, which is still held by Return of the Sith.
The Skinner is terrified that he has forgotten to do something, and so is micromanaging.
A motion to get the Society a carton of milk to pour on its many Banana Flakes passes 9-1-2+Spehn
We got a book by Andrew Menard! No, not that one.
BING! Meeting adjourned, 1830 SST.
