I don't know if any of you saw it when in was on the TV (Americans probally didn't) but I was thinking to myself, what would i put into room 101?

A brief summery of room 101 (the program)

"If you had the chance to banish some of your worst nightmares to the depth of Room 101 what would they be and why? Paul Merton presents this comical chat show asking guests to describe their pet hates, if he's convinced it really is that bad then banished it will be. "


So basically, say something you really dislike to put into room 101, and give a reason!



Thanks.

And neither is X, In fact X marks the spot, There's a Malcom who is also X and three of them together is rude; but no numbers!

I would follow the fine example set by Spike Milligan and put in Portsmouth. I dislike the brute mentality that I was forced to deal with and to a certain extent now have inherited due to growing up there.

Ohh, interesting. Like in 1984 where Winston's Room 101 was full of rats? I don't know what I dislike that much - hmm... graphic pictures of accidents and poor human bodies that end up mutilated. All of that mutilation and pictures should go in there. It scares me. sad.gif

I like having things I dont like around. They keep things real.
But if I had to pick something I think I'd put an assortment of bugs in there, because even if they're not really _that_ gross, I still dont like to try and move them.... <.< I just dont sleep in my room for that night.

I think you may have just stolen my mind Oscar. o_0

Anyway, I would put in pears. What's all the hype about? They are nothing compared to apples and should be banished.

OK when I was at school I had to do a GCSE speaking and Listening assessment based on Room 101. Things that went in were: Kylie Minogue (that was me!) Country music, Pamela Anderson, politicians and so on. I gave my students last year the same assignment. I had everything from curling, teachers, arsenal fans and spdiers right down to skoobies. The amount of effort people put into telling you what they hate is amazing.

My choice? Year 11's that don't do their coursework on time and get me into shite!!!!

A short list of stuff I would like to put in Room 101

(The TV licence fee.) Who wants it?

(Junk food.) How can anyone eat that muck.

(Useless bin bags.) That split to easy.

(Telephone sales persons.) What a right royal pain in the rear end.

(D.I.Y instructions on how to assemble what ever.) Talk about D.I.Y rage.

I wouldn't say I want the licensce fee, but can you honestly say you'd prefer advert breaks every five minutes?

I'd like to throw phone-in TV gameshows into Room 101. You know, the ones that are on at night these days. I feel that those of us who don't stick to standard sleeping patterns would prefer to watch repeats of old shows than Maggie from Dorset trying to guess a word that preceeds "ball"

My L.A. teacher.....She took our section on poetry to tell me exactly how pessimistic and negative I was being...Grr...'course I don't think it's negative, I just think she's being negative for thinking my poems are negative!

Also my Reading teacher's test, which are not open book, and there's 5 multiple choice questions and 2 long response. The 2 long repsonse one's are worth 50%, and I got a 75% on our last test because I forgot to put a period on one of them.

Sorry I came off sounding that way. Perhaps a more accurate modification- people who play obscene gangsta rap very loudly in their car with the windows rolled down. Listen to what you like, but don't force it on the populace.

Actually I'd quite happily put up with ads on British TV if it wiped out the license fee

My choice is along the same lines, Council tax (FTP)

4x4's, and all varients thereof. All the usual reasons. We had much amusement in our honeymoon in Cornwall in our small car watching all the 4x4's get stuck up all country lanes.

Our living on loans society - gotta implode or do summat nasty at come point. Going to be an awful lot of abandoned 4x4's (and noty just up country lanes).

Right, here are a few more that I've thought of (in no particular order of disgust). 1 Light switches on timers that don't last more than three seconds (I've got one in the hall of the building that my flat is in, and I have to run to the next switch) 2. Crappy wireless routers that work quite well the first few times you use them. Then as soon as you try to change the SSID on them the signal strength reduces to almost nothing, unless you're almost beside them. (Coincidence? Possibly, but as I've said before I'm quite paranoid (SSID Signal Strength Induction Decider?)) And 3. Subtle humour. I just don't think it's funny. It, whatever it may be, has to be blatant, or I probably won't get it.

P.E. because it's way to hot to run around.
Recorders because they've got to be the worst instrument ever invented. Also because it's impossible to figure out how much air to put through without the music teacher saying I'm making "Barn Yard" noises.
My math teacher becuase he NEVER writes down which pages we're supposed to do for homework, and expects us to remember them.
HOMEWORK because, well, we do enough work at school, don't we?
Annoying commercials.
People who make my decisions for me.

'There' and 'Their'

Although I often add an unnecessary ' on some words if I'm not thinking.

People who don't use a ' when abbreviating. e.g. " 'cos". Obscure and doesn't matter but it annoys me.

*seconds all the grammar complaints* Several of those top my list of pet peeves.
Oh, and the people who add an apostrophe when there shouldn't be one and then neglect the apostrophe when the need for one is so blatant that it makes my eyes bleed.

Couches!!!!! I wish I had a dollar for everytime my couch swallowed one of my guitar picks....

I wish my mom would just let me rip the couch open and take out all the picks in there...but in the meantime, just got a knew pack of Fender Medium, so I'm happy. smile.gif....

A solution for all guitarists who are sick and tired of loosing picks: Whenever you're done playing, even if its just to go to the bathroom or get a snack, set your pick on top of your amp. It works!

Or stick it in the strings. Or have a plek-holding device thing on your guitar strap.

I used to do that, but whenever I would pick the guitar up, I would forget about it and then it would fall on the ground somewhere. Usually after that, I would either have a spend some time looking for it, or lose it completely.

Well, type however you want, like...

It's really not that hard to understand; I certainly find it more pallatable than relentlessly pointing out errors in grammar and spelling, tbh.
