MITSFS Meeting Minutes
Friday, August 21, 2009
MITSFS meeting called to order, 61.2 Ksec SST, Paul Weaver, Lord High Embezzeler and pseudo-Skinner, presiding; Susan Shepherd, Onseck, recording.
Motion to commend the minutes for being more entertaining than we can easily handle passes 13-0-2 plus Spehn.
PW: Hopefully this time they'll get my initials right, meaning hopefully this time I will send them the correct set of initials.
MGH: They apparently make cotton candy out of maple sugar. If I can acquire some, I will share it with the library.
General library: Wait, could we modify a centrifuge to make a cotton candy machine?
PW: Let us *not* modify lab equipment for that purpose.
MGH: It kind of unnerves me that people might consider using reuse lab equipment for cotton candy machines.
KKB: As long as most of the hydrofluoric acid is gone...
Discussion of cotton candy, prions, ebola and other such ensues, concluding with MGH saying ``Prions, delicious delicious prions.''
MGH: Back in the day . . . when the Tree of Life was just a twig . . . and Andrew Clough was an undergrad . . .
Discussion of the Midway, student groups, Matthew Jarp, Radio Freefall, seasons, hot summer weather, Kendra reading a book for money for MITSFS, hardcoreness, burning of 8.022 notes, fire, smoking, and other things ensues.
Usual motion. Usual second. Usual third. Usual fourth. Usual fifth. Usual debate. Usual pi? Arrrrrgh. Usual bing. Usual revolt.
KKB: It's hot outside.
PW: We're going to get a hurricane. KKB: What?! ALC: We aren't going to be hit directly, but it's coming close. We're going to get a lot of rain Sunday night.
KKB: Soon the froshlings will descend upon us. We must prepare the Wall for assault from the Others. SAS: ``I am the Sword in the Darkness. I am the Watcher on the Walls. I am the Horn that Wakes the sleepers, the Shield that guards the realms of Men. . . ``
pseudo-Skinner is driven from the room through singing.
BING! Meeting adjourned, 66.6 Ksec SST.
