Old Business

In the past, Monk's Magic was checked out.
In the past, somebody owed us money.
In the past, Lemur donated a copy of HPMOR, which should be signed by Eliezer Yudkowsky.
In the past, fanfic was on the reserve shelves.

New Business

In the present, people were terrible. Motion to condemn people for being terrible passes.

\begin{displaymath}n - m - 0 \textrm{ plus Spehn\xspace }\end{displaymath}

Onseck decides to prove the vote's passing via Skinnerial induction:

\begin{displaymath}n \in \mathbb{N}\end{displaymath}

\begin{displaymath}m \in \mathbb{N}\end{displaymath}

Induction base case:

\begin{displaymath}P(n=0): 0 > m\end{displaymath}

By Skinnerial decree, $m < n$. It follows that $m = -1$.
$P(n=0)$ holds.
Assuming $P(n)$ holds, $P(n+1) ::= n > m$
By Skinnerial decree, $n > m$. Therefore, $P(n+1)$ holds.
$n > m$ by Skinnerial induction.
Space: removing circ. magazines gets more space, warehouse demunging is also a thing.

Future Business

The future is a terrible place. Motion to destroy the universe passes 9 - 8 - 0 plus Spehn BING! The universe was destroyed.
In the nonexistent universe, Miller motions were debated.
Lemur moves a banana across the room in the newly destroyed universe.
BING! Meeting adjourned, 64.76 Ksec SST.

Respectfully submitted,
James Hobin, Onseck
