MITSFS Meeting Minutes

Friday, March 6, 2009


(Meeting fails to be called to order.)

Wanking about relative intelligence of SF authors ensues.

MITSFS meeting called to order, 66.4 Ksec SST, Ekaterina Kuznetsova, President and Skinner, presiding; Kendra Beckler, Vice and pseudo-Onseck, recording.

Minutes read.

Motion to condemn the minutes for suggesting that the prentices should be replaced by roombas: 7-3-4 plus Spehn Motion to bring the process of feeding prentices through roombas to the Institutional Review Board: 7-3-0 plus Spehn Motion to explain WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON: 7-7-1 plus Spehn The determinant is 112 and all motions pass.

NH: Hentairific is an awesome word!

EK: Grues can't eat me! I have the gavel!

Motions about launching all the nukes, fire all the gas, and replacing the MITSFS rules of order with the rules of Family Feud. All motions are seconded but fail for lack of the pseudo-Onseck, who is calculating the determinant.



Committee Reports


KAT vaguely talking about the Keith Laumer Retief books.


sueshep (SAS) is getting killed-*ahem*-I-mean-keyed as we speak!

Star Chamber

We have an advisor! Kate Delaney. CYBERPUNK IS DEAD. LONG LIVE CYBERPUNK.

We can now do useful things like renew athena accounts. She probably can't get us more space, though.

SIR: Oh, huzzah, that's actually relevant.


The Cohen donation is now Panthercomm's problem (and partially Catacomm's). Whee.

The motion ``Good thing that wasn't a motion'': 0-0-3 plus Spehn

Theoretical computer programs to make cookies, sadly, do not produce actual cookies to eat.


Old Business


We have a donations FAQ on the website. This actually is old news.

The Watchmen movie is out! (How the hell is this old business?) Discussion ensues.

Isaac Asimov is still dead... I guess that counts as ALGOL.


New Business

Inertia is a usual motion? Sex with bisons? Bicycles?

Weird squeaky noises ensue. I wonder if someone is choking over there. Moving on.

Oh no! Someone is trying to *fizzle* summon *pssssssh* *beeeeeeeeeeeeep This has been a test of the emergency broadcast system do not change the channel*

Mice have been spotted in the library. Eat and you will be deleted.

Spark! To time traveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee


Future Business

CPW is being special. CPW is in the future.

More prentii are in the pipeline!

Motion to lay on more work upon the prentices until they go bananas: 9-11-0-0-1 (sorry Spehn, you don't get to vote) and for some reason...

BING! Meeting adjourned, 66.6 Ksec SST.

Respectfully submitted,
Kendra Beckler, pseudo-Onseck
