Committee Reports

Magazines: The magazines that sort of do not exist are existing less.

*deranged giggling*
New paper dexes exist for the first time in four years!


Old Business

The books are eating us, as usual. The Star Chamber meeting will involve coherent planning. Karl: Charities are sometimes picky about books they receive as donations. Lemur: It turns out that having 500 copies of dune is less than ideal. Skinner: We did successfully donate quite a few books to Engineers without Borders.

In the past, some guy wrote us a letter about how he used a flux capacitor to time travel. Letter read Pamphlet read, spoilers Dean drive manuscript mentioned.
In the past, there was an open house.
Unusual motion to "is there a difference between the usual motion and unusual motion"
Unusual second


New Business

The story of Realauthorscomm is told. There is a new person in the library. BING!

Future Business

In the future, there will be more frosh in the library. In the future, the skinner or onseck will send out reminder emails about emails. In the future, Lemur will write all the rites ever of all time. In the future, the ASA will cease pressganging. MITSFS will not eat your soul without consent.
