MITSFS Meeting Minutes
Friday, August 14, 2009
MITSFS meeting called to order, 61.2 Ksec SST, Paul Weaver, LHE and pseudo-Skinner, presiding; Susan Shepherd, Onseck, recording.
Motion to commend last week's minutes for anticipating Andrew Clough's reaction passes 9-0-0 plus Spehn
MHG: They printed a rejection letter using an entire sheet of paper. It means they care.
MHG: Back in the day . . . when Dinosaurs roamed the Earth . . . and I was an undergrad . . .
Discussion of oldness vs awesomeness, the scourge of acne (DIE, acne! DIE!), Intro to Japanese, and getting carded for R movies despite having graduated MIT some years ago ensues.
Onseck has now actually gotten drunk. The effects were not terribly interesting. This is unlikely to ever happen again. What's the point of taking alcohol if its main effect is similar to sleep dep and you don't even get the clumsiness and slurring that the movies claim drunkeness will cause? Piffle.
Usual motion. Usual second. Usual bing. What about the usual debate? Usual dictatorship. Usual revolution. ``We're doing it wrong . . .''
District 9 is out. MGH: I give it 4.5 squees out of 5.
Quidditch is tonight. You should come and play, or watch if you would prefer.
MGH: It is the future. Where's my jetpack?
TWH: I want two gravity belts - one to wear, and a back up.
Miller motion fails 4-7-2 plus Spehn.
Miller motion passes 9-1-1 plus Spehn.
BING! Meeting adjourned, 66.6 Ksec SST.
