As you stare on the monitor of your computer, you suddenly read this topic, and for an unknown reason, you decide to do as it says.

Anyway...  Smile

I was wondering what can be ound in the room you sit in while online (Bedroom most likely) What is on your wall and what gadgets can be found?

As I'm the one who has the nerve to ask such a question in the first place, I'll start.

My room:

Bed
Table with a PC and some schoolbooks.
A small sofa
A TV, Playstation and a Stereo.
Some aircraft models can be seen, but only my best work.  Smile
some trophees from when I played football.
Some beverage and other interesting stuff.
A closet.
On the wall i have a few posters, and a signed photo by Gary Watt. Big grin

Pretty much it.  Smile

So, in 10 minutes time I'll start realising that this idea wasn't as hot as i thought, and nobody have replied by the time I check how my thread is doing.

Or.... Big grin

Well the room that the house computer sits used to be my brothers bedroom, its only used for computer purposes now but all of the wall decorations are there as is old furniture...

As for my room:
Starting with the door, I have it decorated with momentos from my trip to Australia:
"Danger of Crocodiles: No Swimming" and "Kangaroos Next 10 km" signs
Tim-Tam (Classic Dark) box wrapper
Actual individually wrapped Tim-Tam
McDonalds french fry wrapper (has Australia's Favourite fries on it)
Hungry Jack's (aka Burger King to the rest of the world) French Fry wrapper
Receipt from my purchase of 12 boxes of Tim-Tams to bring home
AN 762 and 733 safety cards (the nicest safety cards Ive ever seen btw) with post-its on them with flight data
NZ 744 safety card with flight data post-it
NZ 744 model box

Now you open the door and you are standing in the doorway, and you'll see:

On my left-hand wall:
Various sports pennants that I used to collect from my dad's traveling when I was real little, several of them were taken down to make room for a Sporty's Cessna 172 cockpit poster, a picture of me swimming with dolphins in the Bahamas, my 7th grade coaches award for wrestling, and my US A330 safety card resting on pushpins.

Up against my left-hand wall:
First my halogen lamp is closest to the door, followed by my overcrowdecd bookcase, on top of my bookcase is my stereo, safety cards, a model of a Hummer, and on top of my stereo is my NZ 744 model. Way back on the wall in the corner is my closet which is very small and recessed back into the wall, and in there are my clothes, various random things, and my archives of aviation magazines

On the far wall:

There I have 5 shelves which I keep most of my touristy things that I buy (aka souveniers), plus my trophies, one of which has a paper bag over it since the main sculpture on it is a fish and my mom is mortified of fish, can't even look at a representation of them so that trophy has a paper bag over it, plus I managed to hang a few things on that wall even though the shelves take up most of the room, and these things include a timeline of 2 dollar bills with bills dating from 1928 to 1976 on it, and a 3 foot long cutout of a VC-25 fuselage that I made in 6th grade for a project. In the corner between the left hand wall and the back wall, my didgeridoo rests in this corner.

Up against the far wall:
From left to right, my broken encyclopedia case, my desk, and my "storage compartment" where lots of random stuff goes, pretty much stuff that I dont have any other place for. In the corner on the right-hand size is my hiking pack and hiking gear. On top of this furniture is typical office stuff, a pencil holder, a junky word processor (fairly modern though) but on top of the storage I have a few framed pictures and a lamp, and some souveniers too since my shelves are overflowing...

On the right-hand wall-
Pennants from geographical locations are found here, then windows, then a few more sports pennants on the right side of the windows

Against the right hand wall-
My dresser takes up most of this wall, I won't describe the contents  Smile, and on top of the dresser are my toy aircraft models of varying scales and costs and things like that, too many to name, everything from a MicroMachines (remember those) A300 to a handmade B-2 that I made myself in 2nd grade and a cheap plastic F-15 thats about a foot long...plus my globe, then theres a gap and I have two magazine racks there where I keep all my aviation magazines that are fairly new, I also keep my flight gear there and theres a surge protector there too…then my night stand and bed are tucked away in this corner, its only a twin bed, the nightstand has on it an alarm clock, my cellphone charger, a reading lamp, and this weird thing that I got as a gift, its like a camping TV, it’s a 5” BW TV and its got like a radio and two lights and a mosquito repeller and its really weird but looks good on there…

On the walls you cant see from the door
Hanging on those walls which enclose my bed (its semi recessed, you can only see half my bed from the door), you’ll see two posters of the B-1B and the F-16 with facts and a cutaway drawing, then two ancient Air National Guard posters featuring an F-16 and an A-10, and a superb picture of the Thunderbirds flying over Mount Shasta, and then on the other wall is a crappy caricature of me and a picture of my great uncle General Omar Bradley, plus 2 or 3 magnets on the light switch…

Well I think that about covers my room, Im planning on rearranging it over the summer, Ill let you know how that goes...

Thanks for reading all of that lol,

Greg

On the walls:
A map of the United States
A poster I stole from a pub with Grolsch beer and British Midland A321
A movie poster for Pitch Black
A map of the World
A Hooters calender

Then for furniture I have my bed, my dresser, 2-drawer filing cabinet, desk, and two plastic three-drawer things that hold up my 19 inch TV.

For applainces, I mentioned my TV, PS2, PC, monitor, scanner, printer, uninteruptable power supply, a lamp and a fan.

Then I have a bunch of random shit sitting around on everything.

Hmmm.

One Rottweiller, an antique secretary (that would be a type of desk), a bottle of beer (1/2 empty), 2 file cabinets, 1 microfiche reader, 4 bookcases and 1 pair of shorts on the floor. Oh, the ashtray with a burning cigarette.

PS : For those that don't smoke. DO NOT START!

If I look out of the window...

Several VIP 727s, a couple of Jumbos, a whole load of BAC 1-11s waiting to be scrapped, a fleet of Falcon 20s, a Canberra and a Vampire ( the last two both still flying).

If I look in the room - work waiting to be done.
