    Thumbs down Room 101

    Room 101 comes from George Orwell's novel "Nineteen Eighty Four".

    It was a place of nightmares where people were sent as punishment, to face their worst fears. George Orwell named it after a room at The BBC, where he had to go for tedious meetings.

    The BBC have a programme where famous people talk about their most hated things and banish them into a large container in Room 101.

    So this is my Room 101, feel free to enter and let us know which things you most hate.

    I will start with sky scrapers, I think they are absolutely awful, a blot on the landscape. Where I live in the city centre they have built them, with posh apartments in. They seem to be mostly glass, ugh.

    These days I try to avoid saying that I "hate" something, but despise and loathe I can - let's see now - this list is far from complete: Trabant(car), those who drive under the speed limit in the passing(left)lane - (Btw, In Germany I've seen the police write a ticket for those who drive slower than the speed limit in the left lane), Pederasts, Drug Dealers/Abusers and Arsonists.

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

    Well, Margaret, the things in Germany are a bit different - you can find the sky scrapers only in Frankfurt here , people live normally in the smaller houses and cottages " on the land " ( like we do ) . Many would say , the sky scrapers are somehow "cool" as a sign of something metropolitan...Our house has three floors, and I think I miss this height and a feeling of the sky around me sometimes. Though, I guess , one can really enjoy living in a sky scraper only if he owns a penthouse....

    Now for the things I personally cannot accept ( I would not say "hate", same as Corno Dolce ) - everything which can be described as a waste of time - first and foremost soaps and computer games.

    Well yes, you don't have to hate things, just things you are not very fond of.

    I don't expect people to hate.

    I don't say hate either. What I don't like is rudeness in people.

    I dislike people who barge into the front of a queue, for example at a bus stop or waiting to get on the train. Manners are good, sadly, most people lack them.
