ROOM 101

The first thing I have chosen to talk about as something I hate most is adverts. Whether its adverts on the television or in a magazine, they are all greatly irritating and I think many people will agree with me. I am going to talk about tele advertisements.

Tele adverts are highly annoying and unwanted by everybody. For example, lets pretend you have just turned on the tele and have flicked onto an interesting movie. It's a horror film, your favourite. Your getting really into the movie and enjoying it, the suspense is building up and your dying to know what's going to happen. Your coming to the climax of the film, you cant wait to see what happens and your on the edge of your seat... and then the film stops and is replaced for 2 to 3 minutes of adverts. Your sense of excitement has disappeared immediately hasn't it? When the film eventually appears back on your screen, you have lost the desire and excitement to watch the movie that you had just 3 minutes ago, and you are not the only one. Research shows a massive 91% of people agree with us, saying adverts ruin television programs, and a huge 79% of people asked said they wished advertisements were banned!

So, what I wonder is why aren't adverts getting stopped forever? Well, when asking around I've been told that some people wrongly think adverts are useful, saying they use this time either to go to the toilet or make a drink or snack. Well, when counting up the amount of advert breaks in-between an hour-long program I was watching yesterday, there was a massive 4 breaks interrupting it! No way do people need to get up and do these so-called useful things 4 times in an hour, which is every 15 minutes, which is ridiculous!

Furthermore, adverts are there simply to advertise different products or services. But, who actually watches the adverts? Definitely not me, and I'm not the only one. A massive 94% of people don't pay any attention to the adverts, and 86% of these people change the

    Room 101 Wouldn’t life just be better if animals are treated fairly? Open your heart and mind to the suffering of animals. Haven’t you just had enough of animal cruelty? Well I have!

    Room 101 I wouldn’t say I’m a negative person, but I found three things to banish from this world surprisingly easy. Room 101 is designed to house the things that you hate but perhaps others love. I could have put a long list of things in it such as marmite and the many mouthfuls I have later regretted making with this substance involved. But nothing gets me more annoyed than the following three things, and by the end I hope you can agree with me. Boxes of Chocolates These sugar-filled boxes…

    biggest urge to just burn it out of your life completely because it does not deserve a place on earth? Well there is absolutely no doubt in my mind that the three pointless, disgusting and aggravating matters that I would send to the dark isolation of Room 101 would most definitely be – Youtubers, overly obsessed One Direction fans or ‘Directioners’ and under aged people who get drunk. I would take immense joy in never having to see or hear of these abominations again in my life! Firstly, as much as…

    Room 101 There is something in everybody’s childhood that torments us, deeply scaring our life. It is not the evil from bedtime stories. It is not words from your arrogant parents. It is homework, given to us by the messenger of the devils - school teachers; of every kind; given to your when you are least expected, and leaving you with nothing but total melancholy. It is the embodiment of the devil. It anchors thousands of workload into the worker’s soul. Making the student needing to complete…
