    I don't think it is silly, I haven't got a clue myself.

    Welcome to the forums.

    Some background to your question might give us an idea. However, it seems to me that you have a partial book title: Does Anything Eat Wasps?: And 101 Other Unsettling, Witty Answers to Questions You Never Thought You Wanted to Ask

    Re: question

    Thank you!
    But i don`t have one. I just saw some articals like: Ghost Hunting 101, How to be A Dirty Musician 101, Ventrioquism101 - Learn How to be a ventriloquist, Acting 101, DJ 101 BEGINNER
    And now i need to know what it`s mean, because i must translite text with alike title in my native language. But i don`t know what it mean!
    Can you explain? Please!

    Re: question

    The Urban Dictionary suggests :

    Introduction, basics

    Which makes sense in relation to your titles.

    Re: question

    An introductory college course is usually labeled "Physics 101" or "Economics 101", etc. It is the first course required before you can take more advanced Physics or Economics courses, which might then be labeled "Physics 102" or "Physics 201."

    College graduates tend to carry this nomenclature over to civilian life. For example if someone is rude to you , you might say "Did you take Politeness 101?" - this would mean that the person knows nothing about being polite because he hasn't learned the compulsory prerequisite.
