Friday, 11 March 2011

MITSFS meeting called to order, 66.6 Ksec SST, Kendra Beckler, LHE and pseudoSkinner, presiding; lemur (DWR), Onseck, recording.

Minutes read.

Motion to commend the meeting for being essentially essential CHICKENS 3-0-4 plus Spehn.



Committee Reports


Patrick Rothfuss is doing a book tour for The Wise Man's Fear, the sequel to The Name of the Wind.

He'll be at the Northeastern University Bookstore at 360 Huntington Ave. in Boston at 18:00 next Wednesday.


Old Business

In the past the stars were right. Then they stopped being right.

In the past, people were healthier.

In the past, people made motions.



New Business

In the present, there is usual lack of understand of what was going on PASSES 4-0-2 plus Spehn.

The onseck is caught up, so clearly we aren't talking enough.

However, while people are debating what they ought to talk about, there is a sudden crack and a number of people in dark robes with wooden wands in their hands appear in the middle of the library and run out the front door without explanation. But before anyone can get up to try and chase them one of them runs back and shouts "Impedimenta" while pointing their wand into the meeting. For a second, everything froze solid, and then there was a glitter of light and all the books turned into ravens, flew out the door and devoured the invaders, robes, wands, and all, and then returned to the shelves and became books again and the meeting continued as normal, while a loud voice boomed "Tree speaks to stone; stone speaks to water!"


Future Business

In the future Spring Break has happened. In the future PAX East has happened. In the future, the apocalypse has happened.

In the future someone made a banana motion, but it FAILED 0-3-2 plus Spehn.

In the future Kaleb will have caused there to be more undergrads at meetings.

In the future there will have been time to travel to all the infinitely many futures.

In the future there will have been much discussion of earthquakes and the resulting firestorms, as well as civil engineering and how water and gas mains are protected from earthquakes, construction workers, and MIT students.

In the future the meeting will still not have obtained a defined track, but people will still have hoped for it to.

And the pseudoSkinner was driven from the room by sadness due to her lack of tentacles, which was emphasized in song.

BING! Meeting adjourned, 66.6 Ksec SST, so it took no time at all!

Respectfully submitted,
lemur (DWR), Onseck
