Subject: Room 101

Date: 16 Oct 14 - 05:26 AM

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.

Has anyone attempted to sort out what has been consigned to Room 101 by the program behind this thinking? What tagset classification might apply? Kitsch, for starters

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.)

Even though she hasn't the slightest interest in cars
and knows deep down how much she loathes Clarkson and everything he stands for..

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

Real life is a bit complex like that , innit...


I think mrs punkfolkrocker would put horror films about dolls and toys that come to life

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.)

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.

Agreed that 'leftenant' one of life's great mysteries. I think of it alongside the name of the city I live near [& your Mass name-clone], Cambridge; which cannot possibly be pronounced the way it is; except that it is!

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.
