MITSFS Meeting Minutes
Friday, August 31, 2007
MITSFS meeting called to order, 61.2 Ksec SST, Christian Ternus, Onseck and Pseudo-Skinner, presiding; John Carr, Aloha Lenscomm and Pseudo-Onseck, recording.
Are there any motions concerning the minutes?
Y: "No but I move to commend the binging for being above and beyond the call of duty." Passes 13-1-5+Spehn.
We thought Sophie was a puppet from Heinlein's Puppet Masters. But she really did leave her backpack at the door, so maybe she isn't. Maybe.
Kevin is wondering if there are a couple of keyholders here who want to move books back to here so he and Andrew can take the couch, that is the couch, back to random.
There's a couch.
Carrie is deemed expendable, being neither Christian nor John, and is dispatched to the Midway.
The Star Chamber is explained to Sophie, and the distinction between the President and the Skinner.
Somebody replaced the other binder that sucked. The new low quality binders hold up better than the old high quality binders that the Onseck bought.
With Term we will be able to free our books from UA domination. Move to send an expedition to scale the mountain of books. Chickens 1-2-6+Spehn. Discussion of Spehn follows.
The Pseudo-Onseck doesn't want to give any more committee reports because he would have to type them up. Motion to condemn the laziness of the p-Onseck. Passes 6-3-4+Spehn.
Y: Motion to encourage the mountain of books to come to Mohammed. This prompts discussion but no voting.
Christian: Term is now over. Summer is now over. Term that was not term is now over. Term has not yet started.
John reads from the December 21, 2001 minutes, in which Jamie gives the gavel a thorough, wet massage.
``I quash the usual debate. There are no usual complaints in Soviet MITSFS.''
Y reads from a review of Seaview. ``Nobody ever said Nazis were practical people.''
Christian thoroughly massages the wet gavel.
John starts to read the Acorna's Rebels SFBC blurb and is forced to stop halfway. Discussion follows concerning things to do with a time machine and Anne McCaffrey. Are time machines for procreating or writing? Motion to draft a modified Nuclear Test Ban treaty to ban Anne McCaffrey proliferation. 14-0-2+Spehn.
In the future we will have more freshmen. Some of the freshmen will become prentices. ``Which are...?'' asks an unsuspecting future prentice.
Prentices are the cool kids. The relatively cool kids. ``Actually, I can't think of anyone we are cool in comparison too.''
``Nerds!'' passes 7-0-0+Spehn.
We're totally cool in comparison to somebody. We must be. Anne McCaffrey! That's it! Motion in favor passes 16-0-0+Spehn.
Motion to lure freshmen with fruit, including bananas. ``Is eating allowed in the library?'' Nobody said the freshmen were allowed to eat them. Passes 12-0-6+Spehn.
BING! Meeting adjourned, 66.6 Ksec SST.
