We pass some motion about the old committees.


Old Business

Dinokatanas ran. Yay.

KKB does a full ALGOL, shouting above continuous binging:

Where are the Comic Books? The comic books are in California. Motion to condemn Wayne B'Rells for his sex life with bicycles. Motion to condemn Irwin T. Lapeer for his sex life with electric typewriters. Bruce Miller is still skiing in Colorado. Motion to give Tom Galloway a better gag. Usual Motion!


New Business

Susan: KKB is 9 years away from being awesome.

This opinion is struck down by the Skinner's disagreement.


Future Business

The 25th aniversary of the MITSFS being in our current space is coming up in January. KCR does NOT want to be in charge of it.

Motion that in the future dinosaurs will roam the earth and will be anatomically correct and have feathers: 21-0-0 plus Spehn

BING! Meeting adjourned, 66.6 Ksec SST.

Respectfully submitted,
