Room 101

Things that wind you up and should be done away with.

1) Teenage estate agents that give you bullshi* about how much your house is worth.
2) Shrinkwrapped goods that take an hour to open.
3) Reality tv shows.
4) tv soap operas
5) Builders that stop work as soon as it's cloudy.
6) Positive discrimination.
7) Political correctness.
8) All MP'S.
9) Shopping with the other half.
10) Pupils who think all they have to do is turn up for a lesson and they will pass a test.

Feel free to add your list.  :evil:

Re: Room 101

People that don't signal on roundabouts
People that tailgate you and glare at you when you are doing max safe speed (like one did this morning then had the cheek to flash me when he turned off)
People that answer their mobiles when you are having a conversation with them as though your suddenly less important than whover has rung up (ok at times you may be but generally not!)
People that nearly kill me and my horse
People that still have to hoot middle of the night and early morning
People that have to hold a very loud drunken conversation walking down the road at 2am (you guessed I hate being woken up)
Anything technical that doesn't have a brain that won't work as it should for no apparent reason (I know it has a reason but I can't fathom it out)
'Estuary' accents...innit like, wevver I fink I loike it or not know what I mean?  And I live in amongst it all.
People that eff and blind in front of children...
Grumpy old women that do nothing but whinge and complain....

That will do for now...Maybe I should have a room just for me  big_smile

Re: Room 101

With my additions...

1. the german football team
          1.  Any soccer team. Australian Rules rule OK
2. the australian cricket team
          2.  Any cricket team (except the Australian team of course)
3. the newzealand rugby union team
          3.  See No.1 above
4. american baseball  WHAT WORLD SERIES?
          4.  Awwwww c'mon now, America IS the world!! Just ask any American!
5. the pamplona bull run
          5.  Why? Keep the run and issue machine guns to the bulls!
6. friday afternoon
          6. Agree. Come to think of it, scrap any day ending with a "y"
7. eastenders
          7.  Is that show still going?
8. the m25
          8.  Can't comment on M25 I never go on it, but bring back the unrestricted limit on the NT's 1,500km north-south highway
9. japanese whaling ships
          9.  You bet! The cruellest, most uncaring nation on Earth.
10. spanish trawlers
          10.  Don't know about Spanish trawlers, but down here in Australia's top end we have BIG problems with Asians intruding into our waters and wrecking the marine eco system

Re: Room 101

...ausie rules isn`t that a game played by hooligans   and what exactly are the rules?????

I hate sledging especially when done by the Aussie cricket team, they are unsporting and unprofessional when they do it and even worse, quick to complain when on the receiving end.
.
Aussie Rules & cricket are closely linked. It's played on cricket ovals in the winter (except for here in the NT when it's played on packed earth or dry grass in the hottest season - searing heat!), with teams of 11* controlled by (ugh) umpires.
*I think. I don't watch Aussie Rules much you see, I'm a family black sheep. I watch cricket even less but mum & my brother still talk to me.

It started as an off-season game to keep cricket teams fit, lots of running and ball-handling skills, minimal injury.

It turned out the the injury rate was extremely high due to the fast running and mid-air collisions.

The Rules.
(1) You must be an Aussie or act like one, and you must vow deep hatred against the umpires who are ALWAYS totally responsible for your team's loss.

(2) YOUR team are the best - best looking, fittest, smartest, most adept whereas the other team is the most miserable bunch of hopeless wussy pansies (probably play soccer in their spare time!) or slow-moving lumps (probably play rugby in their spare time!).

(3) Aussie Rules is a "position sport" because the ball is kept airborne in any direction as much as possible, there is no offside rule (which I still don't completely understand), the action is rapid and shifts quickly all over the field, team members must be everywhere and cannot afford to bunch up, in other words they try to keep to the same basic field position. Only the small agile "rovers" run all over the place.

(4) The ball is kicked or punched never thrown, tackles are allowed except for a direct push in the back and can often cause serious injury.

(5) Uniforms must be minimal & tight fitting - usually no sleeves - Aussie Rules invented the "short shorts". All designed to appeal to the ladies. If "certain" males are also attracted, that can't be helped. Rugby players are normally too heavily built to be successful at Aussie Rules but professional  soccer player physique would be suitable - i.e. athletic without being muscle-bound.

(6) Catching and kicking or passing (punching) the ball while running at full speed and avoiding tackles by the opposition is what it's all about. Play flow must be interrupted as least as possible, umpires invoke a "play on!!" rule to avoid sudden hesitation or stoppages over minor trifles (such as merely cracking someones ribs instead of ripping his arm off). High leaps to catch the ball in a tangle of bodies ("screamers") or extra long kicks (defenders can kick a goal with a good following wind) are treasured.

(7) Scoring is dead simple. Kick the ball between the 2 tall sticks, it's a "goal" worth 6 points in the overall score. Miss the tall sticks but get between the shorter ones placed either side, and it's a point (single point in the scoring system), also called a "behind" (from "behind the line"). So if a player "kicks a behind" he is merely scoring a point, not, for example, chastising a poorly performing team mate.

(8) Having been fed Aussie Rules from an early age (3 weeks before birth) I found rugby and soccer mystifying even hilarious.
Now that I've bothered to learn a bit about the rules of each game I can appreciate the particular skills and techniques of each of the 3 codes (Soccer, Rugby and YAY! Aussie Rules). Baseball is OK too (I played it in high school) but Yankee Grid Iron is still on a different planet for me.

Now pedigreemalc, I bet you're sorry you asked!   :angel:  tongue
