    Being trapped on a cruise ship full of Daily Mail readers for all eternity with nothing on the telly but soaps, 'talent' shows and 'reality' TV.

    I could get used to rodents, reptiles, arachnids and other venomous creepy crawlies.

    For some reason that description has triggered this bizarre mental image of blank staring Barbie dolls spilling out of your defiled wardrobe and pursuing you stiff-legged along the landing to the strains of the Psycho strings. I blame the years I spent teaching Media :)

    Be fair now - rodents can't help their repulsive behaviour, and are actually quite intelligent underneath.

    You are evil. First Frank with the Gove pic, and now this...

    I had to be careful how I "quoted" FrankWolley for fear THAT repulsive image popped up again. The thought of Old Sluglips for PM cannot be borne.

    Well, call me picky, but my worst nightmare would be Bradley Walsh appearing in a prominent role on a prime-time long-running cult TV series.

    Shudder... This thread should carry some sort of "Certificate X" warning.

    I'm sure George Orwell would have used your idea for Room 101, had such things been around back in 1948.

    Yes, this is also a fear, particularly with Alzheimers. If you manage to avoid dementia the lesson I learned from my Dad is don't fall over - it was slowly downhill for him after his last fall. Also have a downstairs loo in case you do fall.

    I've got one of those but not an upstairs one. :(

    Not ideal but it might be more useful if you ended up confined to one floor. My Dad was going to be confined to one room downstairs with a commode next to his bed. I think it was actually better for him that he died before he left hospital, he would have hated to live like that. Referring to the photos (selfies) thread, it was good, at his funeral, to look at photos and cine films of his younger self to celebrate the exciting things he did in his younger life rather than remember him in such a helpless state.

    Bradley Walsh doesn't beat being burned alive in my list.

    Makes me nauseous even looking at this photo...just to be clear, standing on the edge of a very high precipice...

    Be Prepared! - A shovel full of salt will cause slug-lips to swell up and burst, never to slime around again.

    My worst nightmare is the death of my grand-daughters, and in the nightmare it's always my fault. I lose them, or the bedroom window I always keep locked opens when they're leaning on it, or they fall off a cliff.

    @Calpurnia99 I couldn't 'like' this but I know exactly what you mean.
