Consigned to The Luggage

George Orwell in 1984 wrote:You asked me once, what was in Room 101. I told you that you knew the answer already. Everyone knows it. The thing that is in Room 101 is the worst thing in the world.


Well on the Discworld we have The Luggage - the place where things go, never to be seen again.

What from this world would you consign to The Luggage? :D

The more the merrier - there doesn't seem to be any limit to the amount The Luggage can hold. :wink:

while I am fighting to save the curry from the luggage (I like it)

I am ushering in the following collection

zealots
bigots
racists
paris hilton and briteny spears (if I hear about them once more on the news I am going to explode)

The arsonists who started the bushfires in Victoria (with the above two people in there I think that is a fair punishment)

people who harm animals
pen pushing burecrates I know I have misspelled that but I am tired and don't feel like looking it up.

DivingBudgie I second your list!

However being from Africa I am going to have to call Magrat on her ‘Brad Pitt and his wife’ no actually you can keep Brad Pitt on your list but Angelina Jolie has done a lot of good here despite the fact that she may be a bit weird she could hardly be considered the worst thing :?

Apart from that I agree with your list :D

Well, so do a lot of other people and they don't go banging on about it, they just do it! Also I just can't stand her, she is always miscast, especially as Alexander's mother in that yawn fest! I just feel that the ordinary person deserves the media attention on their good works, also I'd rather read about Mr. and Mrs. Bloggs from Mount Pleasant Hackney adopting an African or Chinese orphan than some celebrity barbie doll doing it as probably Mr. and Mrs. Bloggs probably can't have children and it's their only option. And if I was as rich, instead of just adopting ONE child I'd set up an organisation or orphanage to make as many lives as possible better than just one!

There may be flaws in my argument but it does ranckle me, which is why I put her on my list.

She is one of my pet hates and I've never like her hubby - not even as a teenager when everyone was drooling over him I was fantasizing about being carried of to the Labyrinth by King Jareth!

Sorry, didnt mean to hit a nerve. I was not referring to any adoptions actually to her humanitarian work which has aided countless people all over Africa. I myself do like her and after meeting her in Namibia where she donated all the funds to improve a hospital, feel that the press depict her rather unfairly. Actually much of her work goes un-noted and you may be rather pleased to learn that she has infact donated her own time and money to many children organisatons.

But i see that it is a personal dislike which is fine, i am all for personal opinion :D

But this has enlightened me as to what i conign to the luggage –

Hype Media and paparazzi :lol:

Got to agree about media hype and paparazzi. I'm sickened by it. The current thing over here (and I haven't been following it) is the wedding of "brave" Jade Goody, who has been diagnosed with terminal cancer. This is the same Jade Goody who, before the cancer, was mocked mercilessly by the same papers who are now making her out to be some kind of a saint. :?

But it's the way they publish absolute rubbish and so many idiots who don't have a mind of their own, will swallow it hook line and sinker. :evil:

My thighs. But that would probably just leave me sitting down a lot :?

The top half of the volume control on iPods, before all the teenagers I have to share my commute with go deaf.
What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!

I was fantasizing about being carried of to the Labyrinth by King Jareth! Quote from Magrat.

Oh, yes me too, Magrat, that film was brilliant.

His back would probably be a bit off then, cause that was one of my favourite fantasies too :wink:

As for the luggage question (the poor thing must feel very full by now)

Everyone who mistreat children and/or animals
Whomever decided size 0 is a normal size for a woman :?
Vladimir Putin (he scares me a bit, think in reality he might be an alien...)
There were no public health laws in Ankh-Morpork. It would be like installing smoke detectors in Hell.

:lol: I always think that Putin looks like he's a villian from James Bond. There's a guy in From Russia With Love who looks just like him.

His name is Vladek Sheybal. :)
