101

Is:

1. A silly millimeter longer.

2. A historic highway in the United States.

2. The number of kilometers a USSR prisoner had to live outside an urban center after released from prison.

3. Number of dalmatians in the Disney movie 101 Dalmatians.

4. The room number of a torture chamber in George Orwell's novel Nineteen Eighty-Four.

5. The temperature (a.k.a. 38.3 Celsius) outside my bedroom window right now.

I forgot the Orwell reference.  Time to haul it out for a re-read?

6.  A UK TV programme.  Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Room_101_%28TV_series%29) tells me that, "Room 101 was a BBC comedy television series based on the radio series of the same name, in which celebrities were invited to discuss their pet hates and persuade the host to consign them to a fate worse than death in Room 101, named after the torture room in the novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, which is itself named after a meeting room in the BBC Broadcasting House where Orwell would sit through tedious meetings.<sup></sup><span>[</span>1<span>]</span> The television series ran from 1994 to 2007"
