I don't have a "man-cave", I have an office. Same thing really, a space that's mine, just not with a silly name. Actually, when my girlfriend and I moved in together the agreement was that she could pretty much decorate the apartment as she wanted, but the office was mine to do with as I pleased. Yeah, my girlfriend gets about as much use out of my office as I do, but I'm pretty much sure that the same goes with these 'man-caves'.

I have told my girlfriend that if we ever get a house, I'm going to get one of those portable buildings put onto it and turn it into my workshop (a better name for a man-cave).

Wow, way to cover the critical news CNN. If Jimmy lost a bet and had to eat a pube sandwich, would that hit the CNN main page/

Oh come on, who hasn't woken up in a dress doing yard work at a stranger's house? That's what rehab is for, sheesh.

FTA: Klein knew he couldn't build the kind of man cave he wanted all by himself, so he contracted out some of the big jobs, like cutting a hole in the foundation to add 6-foot-tall French doors to the side of the house in place of a window well...

Because nothing says man-cave like French doors.

/also came to say "Flanders, is that you?"

$20,000 and a ton of work on a wooden finish bar in his basement? What is the point? Is it just a chance for the host to 'play bartender' and feel like the alpha male for once? I guess it's like going to a bar, except without any of the socializing involved... which is like the whole point of going to the bar.

Seriosuly, why not just sit around on some couches or a poker table instead? I feel like I'm seriously missing something here.

Thanks to the Internet, there is no way I can read "man cave" and "cross-dressing" in the same article and not expect a link to a tranny video at the end.

Great Janitor: I don't have a "man-cave", I have an office. Same thing really, a space that's mine, just not with a silly name.

I doubt your office is the same as a room with a $20,000 bar and a home theatre.

Why get a bar when I could get a pool table? But there is a home theater system.

Came for the Simpsons pics, was not disappointed. A+++++ transaction.

Great Janitor: I don't have a "man-cave", I have an office...

I saw "orifice" instead of "office", and naturally assumed man-cave was an euphemism for anus. Maybe I jumped to conclusions due to troppo gonzo's disturbing picture.

That makes no sense. You need to chug more scotch until you can math numbers like a pro.

This is a story? This is no a non-event.

BREAKING NEWS! Women go to the mall in pants! It started out innocent, who ever got down to 140 lbs had to go the the mall in pants.

Get over it people.

THE REAL MY SPACE

THIS IS ONE HALF OF MY BASEMENT,WHERE I CREATE, THINK, AND
CONTRIBUTE. I ACCIDENTALLY STARTED PLAYING WITH COMPUTERS , DOING
VIDEOS AND PHOTOGRAPHY SEVERAL YEARS AGO. MY WIFE SAYS IM
EXCESSIVE........I DONT THINK I AM.............OF COURSE I WOULDNT
THINK SO.
TRY SURFING THE NET, BUYING AND SELLING ON EBAY WHILE YOURE
EDTITING A VIDEO PLUS HAVE A DOWNLOAD IN PROGRESS DURING THE TIME
YOURE TRYING TO FINISH A BLOG ALL ON ONE COMPUTER............WONT
HAPPEN. HAVING A SPACE LIKE THIS REQUIRES DISCIPLINE BECASE YOU CAN
SPEND HOURSENJOYING YOUR ENVIROMENT AND IT IS EASY TO FORGET YOU HAVE
OTHERMEMBERS IN YOUR FAMILY.ANYWAY THIS IS THE SPACE WHERE THE KIDS ARENT ALLOWED AND NO
ONE TOUCHES, MISPLACES, BREAKS , RE-ARRANGES, OR LOOKS AT MY
STUFF.........AM I BEING SELFISH....OH WELL.

the voices in your head: That makes no sense. You need to chug more scotch until you can math numbers like a pro.

Actually the article talked about how he got quotes up to $65,000 to make the bar and the guy who did it for $20,000 said he should have charged double. In my original post I said $40,000 with references to these facts in the article but during the preview I took all that out and changed it from $40,000 to $20,000 while not revising the lower number.

This is why I stopped posting. Every time I think I have a second here at work I write something and then something comes up and I can't get back to correct or defend my dumbassishness until everybody's gone. Boo on work!!

A month's sponsorship, let me show you it.

Your shopping/dressing advice, show it to me.

Yeah, just don't do it in public too much, you will get your ass kicked.

Trust me.

/Well, unless you do it very well.

Why would anyone get ass kicked for it? Women don't get assaulted for wearing pants.

Might I ask what happened to you?

Guys, it is 2008, it's time to stop dressing 1800's/1900's

I came into this thread to make sure somebody said "Simpsons did it!" Thanks to this guy, we now have a pretty good idea what Homer Simpson mowing the lawn in Marge's dress would look like in a live-action version of the Simpsons. Did he have to choose the infamous retailored pink Chanal frock?

Sonny Bono in a gown?

Why did it take so long for somebody to combine the push-lawnmower and the bicycle? There should be one of these in almost every garage. Think of the noise reduction, the decline in toxic blue smoke, the weight-loss in suburbia. It's a no-brainer.

But make it a trike. Maybe it could fold up for storage.
