Subject: Room 101
From: banjoman

What would you put in room 101 if you could. For me it would be the loads of sticky labels with my name & address on that every charity in the country seems to send out. I can at most use one or two but I now have thousands and they are difficult to dispose of without causing a security risk.

Just so long as you identify which of the three musketeers eh Mike? Not really fair, but fully accepted on the basis nobody cares what you think.

Out of interest, it was this Musket (Ian) that drew you into looking an arse earlier.

I'd put old men in Room 101. I'd be choosy though. I might extend the list to include;

People who pretend they don't enjoy Top Gear.
Scousers
Jim and Mike (in case they somehow avoided the old men section)
Car showroom staff who want to tell me about their company when I am only interested in the cars they are franchise holders for..
Moles.
The announcer on this sodding train I am on right now
Moles
Companies who sell mole traps / vibrators / food reducers
Moles
The bloke in The Reindeer who suggested sand castle type windmills in the molehills
The bloke who then sneaked a photo of my far lawn and put it behind the bar
You know who you are, twat.
Moles
People who call the song Lamona and not Pomona
Moles
People who don't put cow juice in tea
Moles
People who find an excuse to say "fuck" gratuitously rather than in context in posts. (Mike's above for instance)
Fucking moles (see? In context.)

but, she still thinks he's hilarious....???

I gather Room 101 is located metaphorically in the UK.

For my part, I would applaud Michael if he were able to herd a majority of 'fuck' users into that room. They seem to define 'in context' as any situation in which they are unable to phrase a comment using myriad other locutions in that wonderful language they treasure so deeply.

(Oh, we have 'em over here, also, but we seem to have no special room for them... they roam freely and breed.)

From: Doug Chadwick
Date: 16 Oct 14 - 02:28 PM

The Room 101 TV programme seems, to me, to have got hold of the wrong end of the stick. George Orwell's Room 101 is a place that holds your worst fear, to be used against you when the system wants to coerce you into conforming to its wishes. The TV programme, on the other hand, treats it as a place to banish your worst fears, never to be seen again.

I would have thought that the best things to send into Room 101 would be those that you really like but pretend that you hate. With a bit of accomplished acting and a few crocodile tears, you could have a whale of a time and get one over on the system.

There are a few UK words that I prefer to those I am used to in the US. Like 'lift' for elevator. No idea why we use such an unwieldy word nor why we keep it.

But some word usages I don't understand at all. Like 'leftenant'. Why? I realize that pronouncing it 'lootenant' is also not the French pronunciation but it is at least closer.

I agree, Ebbie.

FWIW, I hear more and more the U.S. pronunciation 'Lootenant' here, very likely due to the influence of the U.S. TV programmes (note correct spelling, Bill! :-) ) and films (or 'movies' as ex-colonials quaintly refer to them) with which we're bombarded.

Years ago now, BT added 911 as getting you through to 999 because kids watching American sit coms and films had that number hard wired in their heads.

If anyone told me moles originated in America, my xenophobia and Room 101 list would be complete.

I don't "fear" anything so couldn't fit in with Orwell's idea of what R101 contains. Rationalisation defeats "fear"....religions CAN be rationalised.
The TV programme encompasses anything that the participants do not like, which is twisting Orwell's work and meaning.
This has occurred on various different occasions pertaining to his writing.

Wot rectangles?

Ed. Speaking for myself, I make a dry rub for brisket, made from Demerara sugar, paprika, crushed garlic, salt and pepper. Wrap in cling film and leave overnight. Cook in the bottom of the aga for at least six hours, having given it all of 20 mins in the top oven, and have a small amount of stock in the bottom of the lidded casserole pot to prevent it drying before it's own juices take over. About half an hour before eating, take it out, drain off the stock to make a gravy and rest it on top of the aga with foil over it.

The gravy is quite stunning, with the slight sweetness from the sugar and the kick from the paprika and garlic.

If you tenderise meat, try buying a better cut instead or in the case of brisket, slow cook it longer and in all cases rest it more.

It started out by fancying Nigella Lawson and went from there I suppose.

SOLVED !!!!!*

Just addded the chrome extension "Chromoji - Emoji for Google Chrome™"

I can now even see the little icony buggers in full colour...


[* unless this extension itself causes unforseen problems and breakages further on down the line...???]

I still use Opera as a browser by choice..(for various reasons of internal navigation).. but only earlier versions which no longer support new ...ummm... 'advances'. This, I use Mozilla & its clones when I need to do certain stuff.... and I like PaleMoon because I can control what it does, and it doesn't demand I update every 15 minutes like Firefox does.


And I haven't needed to wash MY hands from an IE use for 7-8 years.

MGM·Lion - what browser and operating system are you using ?

.. and how are you generating icons - because up to now yours were the only ones
I could see in Chrome on Win 7.

My icons are from the Special Character palette which I get from scrolling down to the bottom of "Edit" in the header menu.

-Mac OS X version 10.6.8-, it sez here on the -About This Mac- popup. My browsers are Safari & Firefox. I am always on the latter when I access the Cat.

Maybe one of the more techie mudcat mods could start a sticky tutorial thread on this subject,
because I'm sure there must be many mudcatters scratching their heads in bafflement
at the recent plague crop of tiny empty rectangles showing up in posts ...???

.. of course I'm no longer one of 'em poor unenlightened souls...

I got a brand new shiny chrome emoji extension..!!!

Why would anyone over 15 want to use them?
The only pictorial I use is :0) when I want to make it clear that I'm joking.......and I rarely joke.


I find, trying to use the proper grammar is half the satisfaction of internet writing.

""I rarely joke""

Lacking a sense of humour is kinda like being ambidextrous, a dumbass and a tightass.

Well if you're ever in Dublin and book to stay in the Parliament Hotel, just ask for Room 101 - it is absolutely MASSIVE! We were there a few years back with daughter, son-in-law, son and ourselves, and booked 2 ordinary rooms, but D + S-I-L got room 101.
Apart from a king-size bed it had a conference table and numerous chairs around it. Our son was supposed to be in our room, but went out on the razz in his tatty jeans, forgot his room key, and therefore very nearly failed to get into the hotel again late night. Only when son-in-law went down to plead with night porter to let the toe-rag in, and he spent the night on the floor of Room 101!

Tattie Bogle's story reminds me. I recently did some work where I was given an office for when I needed it. I was pleasantly surprised to have one, as they didn't need to really. The offices had inventory numbers for estates purposes and the reason why the office was empty was that it was always the last one to be claimed.

Room 101.

Presumably used normally to drop a hint to an over promoted director. Hence free for outsiders to use..

Oh hang on.

Nearly forgot.
