- '1984' by George Orwell
Post Room 101 is the place where all the bad things are stored here at the Post Office, and
now we are going to give you the chance to place your three 'worst things in the world' in there as
well. All you have to do is send me a list of your three least favourite things and the reasons why
they are. Your things will then be placed up for a public vote by your fellow Post Readers. If the
Post Readers agree with you, your things will then be placed in Post Room 101 and the door locked,
if not, they will remain in the world and you will just have to put up with it!!
Send me your list of three things and the reason for each to me at [email protected] and please
remember to include your h2g2 Researcher name and 'U' number so I know who you are. I will
then shortly be in touch with you if I need more information or I have any queries.
If you prefer we can discuss the things you would like in Post Room 101 via a conversation on
h2g2, though of course these would not be private, but it may be something you would prefer doing.
If this is the case please leave a message at The Post
Room 101 Message Service on the Post Office homepage.
Last week Master B
submitted Christian Rock, People who sing along and Beaches for you to vote on. The debating was
the most furious since Post Room 101 was opened. Christian Rock was overwhelmingly voted in but 'People who sing along' was sitting on the fence for quite a while until finally being nudged by researcher votes through the doorway. Beaches however was hotly contended and remained tied when the votes where tallied forcing me to decide with my casting vote which is 'Against' therefore Beaches remains out of Post Room 101. The voting on this list of three things is now closed, thank you for your participation.
POST ROOM 101 NEEDS YOUR HELP!
Our fourth submission for Post Room 101 comes from quizzical, and here is her list of three things she would like you
to vote on to go into Post Room 101.
- So-called 'Reality' TV Shows.
Oh, sure, like normal people live that way. I hate these shows with a passion. They rot your brain,
they rot your soul. Of all the shows that are a complete and utter waste of time, these are the
complete-est and utter-est.
If their product was any good, they wouldn't have to resort to calling up strangers and asking them
for money. Besides, with all of the scams and identity thieves out there, security experts are
telling us never to do business over the phone unless we initiate the transaction with a reputable
business. Here's a piece of advice, Mr Telemarketer: get yourself a decent marketing plan, and
quit interrupting my dinner.
- Clothing Designers.
I'm convinced they're a bunch of misanthropes who vie with each other to see who can make us pay
the most to look like idiots. Low-rider jeans? PUH-LEASE! The only people who are allowed to
display 'butt cleavage' are plumbers and toddlers about to lose their nappies. The rest of you: pull
up your pants. In way too short a time, you'll be an old geezer with your belt under your armpits.
Get used to it.
Now it's up to you readers, if you agree with quizzical that her things should go into Post Room
101 with the other 'worst thing's in the world' then vote in a conversation below. Similarly
if you don't agree then tell us why also in a conversation below. The votes will be tallied and if the
yays get more votes than the nays then quizzical's things will be placed in Post Room 101 and
locked away forever.
Items/things put forward have automatically one vote for them and if the voting
is tied I will have the casting vote.
Voting closes at midnight GMT on Tuesday 17th
