Whats in your room 101?

Postby al_yrpal » 8 Nov 2018, 4:36pm

People who sit in parked cars glued to their phones whilst the engine is idling pumping out fumes and deadly particles. (An offence under the Road Traffic Act)

Pavement parkers

Touring on a bicycle is a great way to explore and appreciate the countryside and towns you pass through. CTC gone but not forgotten!

The telly programme with that title seems to misrepresent the concept of Room 101 in Orwell's 1984. It's not about irritations and such, but the ultimate personal dread.

A better explanation than mine here:

Yep.
Spot on TC.

In my "Room 101" would be puerile telly programmes and anything with Chris Evans or Jeremy Vine on.
Plus ........... miserable weather, rain and wind, and the nights closing in.

Personal dread?

Thinking I'm suffering from Koro and going to the doctors only to be told they can't see anything...

Now that I'm completely and utterly hairless with alopecia universalis ................ and love it! ................ I'd put hair into Room 101.
I'd be horrified and distraught if any of my hairs grew back.

I would say London (or any big city), but I don't actually dread them, just much prefer leaving to being there.

Actually I am terrified by heights (even though I love hill-walking). Maybe that's why I live in Cambridgeshire

Dog owners. I can handle the dogs, but the majority (really) of dog owners around here are selfish fools.

AND wind.

AND passwords.

AND modern chip shops that advertise that they have everything, but actually have nothing, here and now, to eat.

AND Politicians.......ALL flavours.

A very confined space, in the dark with a bit too much water.
