Room 101 Revisited: Things that need to be banned from public places

Somewhat of a consolidation of the conclusions of other thread passim, basically so we can really concentrate on all those people and things that really get on our ****s when we're out and about trying to enjoy the laissez-faire environment that Switzerland offers and that we all value so much.

The list so far is:
  • Smokers
  • People using mobile phones
  • Children
  • Cake
  • Old people
  • Kisses in the workplace
  • SVP adverts
  • Barbeques on balconies
  • SUV-sized babby buggies
  • Jokes about Amy Whinehouse
  • Dogs
  • Religiously-provocative avatars
  • Intolerant people
  • Babies

So, who/what else needs to go to Room 101, to keep the streets decent for the rest of us?

Oi! The onion festival was the highlight of the year for us poor benighted souls who were obliged to spend our winters in Burton in Kendal.

We have to consider a red card to that guy that roller-blades down Bahnhofstrasse in Zurich every weekend. Those shorts are just way to tight.
