When the birds can be heard above the reckoning carts doing some final accounting
Lava flowing in Superfarmer’s direction
He’s been getting reprieve from the heat in the frozen food section”

Edict #14

This edict has been a long time coming, I think. But it is one of those unfortunate duties every President has to address…

Adam W., I regret, stands accused of the following:

  • He has regularly contributed (sometimes to the misfortune of others, I think :P) in club discussions, finding ways both small and large to improve bills and policies (including taking an active role in the Academy’s current discussions regarding the new mentorship mandate).

  • He had the audacity to be elected as Vice-President even before he had even commanded a ship (and served that position well, it seems - probably because that was the second time he was Vice President).

  • He swung like a chimpanzee through the Academy, rising through its ranks, becoming the Academy Fleet Liaison Officer and later the Vice Commandant (and only left a few bananas behind… Chimpanzee’s don’t eat bananas? Well, I’m still president, and I say they do).

  • He has served as Fleet Commander. Why is that a problem? Well, when he continued in that role in the first part of this term, the fleet ran so smoothly that he didn’t give me anything to do as President related to his fleet…

  • When he was asked to step in as Assistant Personnel Director this term, it took him minutes to say yes! Minutes! (/me shakes his head). Even though that meant that due to other RL commitments he would have to step down as FComm (a role which he seemed to actually enjoy?!). And then he helps the PDept run so smoothly even though he never worked in the PDept before? There has to be a rule against that somewhere…

  • I have to assume that he is is also not just breaking club law, but violating the laws of physics and being in multiple places at the same time. How else does one explain Adam doing all of the above, but then also deciding to mentor new members all the way up to those members becoming XOs…

  • And then he decides to convince a club to elect him President after all of that? (/me mutters again to himself)

Given my totalitarian powers as President, and that none of the above is reviewable by EGO, I unilaterally find him guilty.

The only appropriate punishment is… more bananas.


Wait, I don’t get a banana budget as president? Fine. Second-most appropriate punishment it is then.

Adam W. is hereby promoted to Fleet Captain.

Congratulations, Adam!

That’s it! points to the plank Walk the plank you!

In all seriousness though, great work Adam! Congratulations on the promotion! :D


Hail to the Chimpanzee, Chimpanzee, Chimpanzee, Hail to the Chimpanzee for he’s soon to be boss!

Very well deserved, Adam and thanks. I hope you’ve stocked up on the beverages of your choice for the upcoming 8 months …


Thank you. Yes, chimpanzees eat bananas. And I actually don’t drink…yet.

Adam W.


Here is a congratulatory banana from the EGO stash, because we didn’t spend all of our budget on fish this past term. :-P
