Thanks Alan H. It was. I think I've got there now.

I cannot believe that I tried to offer technical advice.

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

Surely the topic has to be roughly in and around the idea of putting things we do not like into Room 101.

I will also put the discomfort of heatburn, reflux and hiatus hernia in there as I now go down to get a Gaviscon.

Can I please put laryngitis into room 101 if I promise not to say anything remotely antimonarchical on this thread?

I assume you've got laryngitis at the moment, so how are you going to say anything at all, anti-monarchical or otherwise? :shrug:

But, yes, laryngitis can go in, along with all other cold viruses... <sniff>, <cough and splutter>

Perhaps there's a homoeopathic remedy I should be trying, that'll make me better by this time next week...

Now, where's the Kleenex? (Please, no one put them in Room 101!)

It's not homoeopathic, I'm afraid, but if you stand on one leg (doesn't matter which), and grab the big toe of the other foot with one hand (using the other to stop yourself falling over if necessary), and rub it vigorously for a count of thirty-three, you will feel much better by this time next week, I guarantee it.

No, but can we put any paper tissues that aren't "mansize" in Room 101? Because what the hell is the point of a pathetic, flimsy little tissue that falls apart when a mucus-laden nose of quite modest proportions gets within sneezing distance of it?

Maria, I thought that the anarchy thread was getting interesting. I hope you'll consider splitting it so Nick and I can put over our point of view. This one isn't for me so :exit:

I want to put BP in room 101.

I've been waiting 2 weeks for an LPG delivery which has not materialised and I'm now out of gas and freezing my bum off!

Perhaps the entire oil industry for room 101?

Family sized anything [---][/---] WTF is a family bathroom, or a bottle of family-sized bleach?

the bleach is easy..

Gran/grampa use it to soak their dentures
Mum uses it to clean the family sized bathroom
teenage girl/boy uses it to (unsucessfully) bleach their hair/eyebrows
Dad uses it to (unsucessfully) clean the motorbike engine oil stain from the living room carpet
and toddler tries (unsucessfully--there is always a child/gran proof top) to drink it

I think perhaps a family sized bathroom is one where dad can sit on the pan enjoying the morning paper and grampa can shower, while teenage son/daughter apply their make up and tiny tot cleans his teeth under the supervision of mum, who is cleaning the floor with the aforementioned bleach.


but maybe that's just my family...

OK, I get the message....finally.

I've split off a number of posts on political stuff to a new thread here.


Note: I don't look at every live thread every day so you'd get quicker service if you send me a pm. :)

A PM is a Prime Minister...

or, in this context, a Personal Message. :D

If you look at the bottom of the box that each post is in, there's a PM button. Click on it and you can send a PM to the person who wrote that post. You can include the text of the post or just start from scratch. It's a way of privately contacting someone (anyone on the forum), without anyone having to post their email addresses.

:laughter: I've never thought of that. We have lots of family butchers here, and a corresponding decline in families!

then there is family planning. Best not to get these mixed up. The consequences of going in to the butcher for a vasectomy could be interesting.


For room 101 - on a driving theme - I was going to list different types but I thought it best just to lump them together -

Dangerous ill mannered Inconsiderate bastard drivers!


I feel better now.

Shop assistants who think they know better than you!

Just been to Curry's to buy a FreeSat receiver. We don't have a HD TV, so just need a basic SD (Standard Definition) one. I asked the assistant what models they had and explained I didn't need an HD one. Was promptly told that FreeSat was HD. I explained that only 2 channels are HD (BBC and ITV) and that the rest were SD. Was told again that FreeSat was HD. Explained yet again... you get the picture (or not, as the case may be!). Eventually had to be a bit rude and asked if he could find someone who knew what they were talking about! He disappeared, but no one else appeared. Bought one elsewhere (SD, not HD and saved about £100).
