Friday, January 29, 2009

MITSFS meeting called to order, 61.2 Ksec SST, Miss Katie Ray, President and Skinner, presiding; Kendra Beckler, pseudoOnseck, recording.

Minutes performed as interpretive dance by the pseudoOnseck.

Motion ``vigorous!'' passes: 8-0-4 plus Spehn



Committee Reports

Titanic Tetriscomm

We punted a bunch of shelf parts out of the alley. Yay floorspace in the alley. They have been posted to reuse.


Mag* had prentices do work. Also magventory data was cleaned up into an almost-usable format. We could use someone to help with that.

Wankery about history of MITSFS publishing its magazine holdings ensues.

If we get a real dex of the magazines, we might call it the Kendex (after Ken Johnson). But where is the Barbiedex?


Old Business


MKR received a birthday cake via the mail. Modern times are amazing.

Motion to pass around a fruit snack, perhaps a plantain or a banana fails: 4-18-2 plus Spehn


A newbie tries to overthrow the skinner. He promptly goes insane at the attempt. Learn, ye foolish mortals, what fate befalls he who messes with our great and glorious skinner!


New Business

Every now and again, you still hear about women named Livia. Disturbing, not admirable, guys, come on!

YASID wanking involving portals, Flatland, and relativity. Then a large lime green dragon enters the room and eats us all for dinner, then falls asleep, allowing us to continue the meeting in one of its three stomachs. No one notices, they are too busy wanking.


Future Business

There is a movie called Wolfman coming out soon. Also Lensman. Also Solomon Kane. And Keanu Reeves in the live-action version of Cowboy Bebop. Moviesmoviesmoviesmoviesmoviesmoviesmoooooooviesmoooooooooooooooooviesmoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooovies.

BTS: ``It's the 1920s all over again!''

KCR: ``BRIAN BLESSED. That's in all caps please, maybe boldface. BRIAN BLESSED!''

More people might die. *gasp*

In the future, Utah might get back to us about the scans. They must be aliens from a different universe in which it would actually be profitable to abscond with our microfilm.

In the future, there will be Reg Day and term and a career fair.

KCR: ``Thursday is coming. Did you bring your coat?''

Burn, witches, burn! Because this makes for good youtube watching.

Motion that in the future, we might have bananas: 6-6-1 plus Spehn

Motion that in the future, we might have bananas... no, fuck that. BANANA!: 1-11-6 plus Spehn

Any motion the onseck wants, therefore to DESTROY THE WORLD: 2-4-11 plus Spehn

Determinant is 600, all motions pass, the meeting ends twice and the world is destroyed. Happy world destruction day, everyone! First anniversary!

BING! Meeting adjourned, 66.6 Ksec SST.

Respectfully submitted,
Kendra Beckler, pseudoOnseck
