MITSFS Meeting Minutes

Friday, July 30th, 2010

MITSFS meeting called to order, 66.6 Ksec SST, Paul Weaver, President and Skinner, presiding; Kendra Beckler, LHE and pseudo-Onseck, recording.

Minutes read (while cackling).

Motion to commend last week's minutes for unaccustomed brevity: 7-0-5 plus Spehn



Committee Reports

Star Chamber

We started purging a large part of reserve.

In other news, we have mold in the reserve magazines.

...Believe it or not, those two statements are unrelated.

Motion to not allow Michael near anything radioactive: 5-4-1 plus Spehn (Guess who voted against with all limbs?)

We have new rates for memberships.


Naomi Novik was at Pandemonium.

We have a loaned copy of Sanderson's The Way of Kings on the new books shelf. You should read it and review it for Kvetchcomm.


MIT Gifts Office is confused. That is all.


Old Business

It is very sad. We failed to summon Cthulhu last week.

Ian: Motion to commend the High Priest of that ritual for useful incompetence: 6-0-6 plus Spehn

For the record, the High Priest in question was lemur.

Ian: ``Motion stands. Or, in this case, chickens.''

We should ask the MIT bio labs for spare eyeballs with which to watch the books.



New Business

It's never too late with Super-Skinner around! Super-Skinner can just warp time and space!

The wormhole on the wall is out of order.


Future Business

In the future, the Skinner will have no tail at all...

BING! Meeting adjourned, 68.4 Ksec SST.

Respectfully submitted,
Kendra Beckler, LHE and pseudo-Onseck
