I won't go this far, but I do plan on mounting a book case on the door to my basement complete with books that have to be pulled to open the case.

That's quite impressive for a basement theater.  I knew a guy who had a basement theater.  It wasn't a bat cave but it was still awesome.

I'm no realtor... but I'm thinking the real Bat Cave cost more than $150,000.  You can't go cheap in today's market.  Today's crusaders of the masked/caped variety are demanding top notch finishing touches.

Does the article say what he does for a living?

As long as their finances are in superb shape (lots of investments, tons of savings, college funds, etc), his parents are taken care of, and none of his immediate family is living in poverty, then I guess it would be ok to disgustingly waste $150,000 dollars building a toy.

What a f*cking dumbass.

That $150k could've helped so much more in this world than doing that with it.

I once went to a game show audition at the Culver Studios that was held in the same soundstage where
the Batcave set was built for the Adam West series.

As big as it was, it was a lot smaller than you'd think given how it looked on screen.

that 150K didn't disappear into a hole, it was spent on building materials, collectors items, and other knick knacks, money which went into the hands of the manufacturers of those items, I bet some of that money was spent on local contractors, people that are hurting right now.

The money you spend on an internet subscription and electricity to run your computer could be better spent on AIDs babies or cancer research or something. Here's a tip, if you own a pair of shoes you are probably much better off then a large portion of the world's population and any money you spend could be better spent.  You don't need a  big house,a new car, fancy electronics,a coffee maker or any number of other things that you probably own.

Wow so much hate directed at me because I think this guy wasted a fortune on some bullsh*t renovation.

Yes, I have internet so that means I am just as greedy as this guy... because my internet costs me $75,000 a year.

I'm a sh*tty person because I think this guy wasted that cash instead of helping others with it. Very logical.

I stand by my original posting and my words. My point is: if this guy had $150,000 to do this, that means that every other single detail in his life is taken care of, to the extent that he has more money laying around for extras, than 75% of the people in your country make (or whatever the line is, $75k/yr is a lot in the US).

Everything is in scale. I do my part as much as I can. If I had an extra $75,000 a year (EXTRA mind you, ASIDE from what gets me through life), then I would also do good with it. Instead of fulfilling some f*cking loserish childhood fantasy of building a room for a fictional character.

I am shocked that the anti-social, cynical, self-titled-highly-intelligent crowd on Fark disagrees with me.

Well you also can't read very well then. It said he built it in 2.5 years, not that he saved for 2.5 years to build it. He could have been saving up that money for years. Either way you're a complete buzzkill and I'd be surprised if someone willingly associated with you in real life.

This man's dream to have a bat cave was what inspired him to save up his money and do it.  He might not have kept the money around if he didn't have such a dream.

Sure Haven't your universe where everyone who has even a penny extra in their possession has to give it to Charity X (whatever issue humanity has) leaves no room for dreams of any kind.   Dreams that lead to the computer that you typed your disgust for human greed on.  Dreams that lead to the fact that you have power in your house, running water, even a government that while corrupt doesn't force you to do much of anything.   Hell even your existence is owed to the fact that some doctor wanted to enjoy his life after working hard on it.  If that doctor was told that every cent beyond what was needed for his basic survival would go to Cancer research or AIDS research then he would have taken up janitorial work.

Even what money is required for you to live is part of the greed.  Does your apartment have central air conditioning?  Electricity?  Running water?  A refrigerator, hell even a lock on the door?  There are dwellings that have none of this and cost less than the rent on that apartment.  That means that every cent that was spent on this apartment could have gone to Cancer research.    The sidewalk you take to work in the morning doesn't have to exist.  The roads, the bridges are luxuries.  The fact that you don't have to fight off a bear every morning is a luxury.  The fact that you don't have to hunt that bear for food is too.

Before taking this attitude you should understand how deep the rabbit hole goes.  Everything around you that you did not make, every food you didn't hunt or forage, every drop of water you didn't go to a river to get is extra money that could go to your charities.

PS. you know children in Africa would kill to have your refrigerator contents.

Luxury.  We used to have to get out of the lake at three o'clock in the morning, clean the lake, eat a handful of hot gravel, go to work at the mill every day for tuppence a month, come home, and Dad would beat us around the head and neck with a broken bottle, if we were LUCKY!

Right. I had to get up in the morning at ten o'clock at night, half an hour before I went to bed, drink a cup of sulphuric acid, work twenty-nine hours a day down mill, and pay mill owner for permission to come to work, and when we got home, our Dad and our mother would kill us, and dance about on our graves singing 'Hallelujah.'

It's NOT a Bat-cave, it's a basement home theater decorated with Batman stuff and paneling that looks like rocks.

I expected that he'd have an entrance to a real underground cave from his house, where he'd have rigged to look like the Batman's Bat-cave, possibly a doorway for his car.

That's what I'd go for.

Yeah, I thought OK $150k sounds pretty cheap for a real cave dwelling of any kind.  But of course, this is just some suburbanite with a finished basement, and $150k sounds a little ridiculous.

IrateShadow: The guy can build whatever he wants but from what was shown it looks like he massively overpaid.


I think it sounds about right when you consider the theater equipment (which can get expensive pretty quick if he got a high-end projector and sound system) and however much he spent on collectibles for it.  A full-size Batsuit and prop replicas can add up pretty quick.

A broken clock that is stopped at the time of the murder of Bruce Wayne's parents?  Suddenly the guy who remodeled his apartment after Star Trek: Voyager seems normal.

It's a luxury that your dad had a bottle to beat you with and a building in which to do it.

Why did the bottle exist?  Because someone saw it as a way to make more money packaging their beer.  They were making beer to make money.  Noone needs the beer to be alive but people want it so they can drown their sorrow at night because they couldn't make it in this world.  That broken bottle that got lodged in your neck once had beer in it (or something stronger probably).   The mill exists because the guy who operates it needs it to produce a higher quality product to make more money.  His dreams to enjoy the rest of his life lead to your tuppence that you got each month.  If he didn't exist your job didn't exist... and all that money that flowed through the mill didn't have a chance to go towards Cancer or AIDS or starving kids in Africa or the cleft mouth people  (you've seen that commercial at one point if you have a computer to type on).

I'm basically putting you on ignore because whatever point you're trying to make is so poorly stated that it's hurting me trying to parse it. It's self defense.

You're either a hypocrite - very selectively getting outraged over minor things that don't concern you, but letting more major things slide without a peep - or you're incredibly exhausted - there aren't enough hours in the day to biatch this much or more about things that deserve biatching this much or more.

thisiszombocom: cripes those houses are huge. why does anyone need such a big gd house??


Well you need a master for the parents. Then a bedroom for each of the kids (two in this case). Plus another in case you have more kids. Plus each bedroom needs its own bathroom so the kids don't fight in the mornings, plus you need an extra room for the mother-in-law to stay the night, (or visiting relatives, friends in from out of town, etc., ) Plus an office, (since people who can afford these kinds of houses usually have the kind of jobs that mean you work from home in the evenings and weekends). Plus you need to have a big kitchen, plus a big living room with high ceilings open above, so no second floor space above it, plus you will need a game room for the kids to play in, plus you need a home theatre room, plus you will need a three or four car garage for your two SUVs and room for a decorative workshop/tool storage area.

And all that BEFORE you put in your batcave. That takes a lot of square footage.

Making money is not a crime. Being an unethical asshole to make it, sure, bring out the pitchforks and mob justice ala the stock market and banks who screwed the economy.

If some guy and his family have enough extra cash for this, then more power to them. And I say that as a guy making around 35k a year at the moment.

As someone pointed out, that money went to buy goods and materials, that ultimately meant those businesses could provide jobs. Tradesmen were employed to construct it, which meant they ha money to buy things like food, and other living expenses.

That's how economics tends to work. Stop being butthurt.

The good news is that he is married, and his better half is very thoughtful, according to his statement: "She was a little apprehensive at first, but then she came around and said as long as I could pay the mortgage, I could do it."

Well isn't he lucky to have found a woman that allows him to do something he wants with the money he earns.  Bet dad wishes mom had been more like that.  She'd drop $5k on a new couch without a second thought but raise nine different kinds of hell when dad decided to spend less than $2k on a new computer.  And she keeps asking me about when I'll get married.

Oh, and batcave dude is an idiot.  He's living right up the edge of his income it seems.  If he doesn't have a plan for when the bottom falls out, and it will because it always eventually does, they're going to be screwed.  He spent all that and he has a mortgage.  What a tard.  If he's able to generate that much income he shouldn't have a mortgage, he's just throwing money into the gaping maw of corporate greed.  That money should be his and working for him and his family.  Upper middle class is a tenuous position at best, the moment the household's main earner gets cancer or whatever everything is ruined.  If you get there, take it for all it's worth and skip the McMansion bullcrap.

I'm sure the tradesman, carpenters and electricians that worked on the project were happy for the job.  And the guys who sold and installed that expensive home theater.  And all of those memorabilia dealers and retailers.  And furniture salesman.  And carpet installers.  They all have bills to pay and families to feed, and they do it when guys like this make their dream come alive.

So not only are you a buzzkill, but a selfish, twatish one at that with no understanding of how an economy works.

And if you really wanted to hate on something, why not on the Batman films?  That's just half a billion dollars of twaddle that could have been better spent helping inner-city children learn how to grow organic, heirloom tomatoes.

Otto_E_Rodika: sure haven't: Wow so much hate directed at me because I think this guy wasted a fortune on some bullsh*t renovation.

Yes, I have internet so that means I am just as greedy as this guy... because my internet costs me $75,000 a year.

I'm a sh*tty person because I think this guy wasted that cash instead of helping others with it. Very logical.

I stand by my original posting and my words. My point is: if this guy had $150,000 to do this, that means that every other single detail in his life is taken care of, to the extent that he has more money laying around for extras, than 75% of the people in your country make (or whatever the line is, $75k/yr is a lot in the US).

Everything is in scale. I do my part as much as I can. If I had an extra $75,000 a year (EXTRA mind you, ASIDE from what gets me through life), then I would also do good with it. Instead of fulfilling some f*cking loserish childhood fantasy of building a room for a fictional character.

I am shocked that the anti-social, cynical, self-titled-highly-intelligent crowd on Fark disagrees with me.

/yes, I'm a buzzkill. I bring up AIDS, Cancer, and oppression at every social event. When people complain about minor annoyances I introduce the holocaust to the conversation

Going back to the 1960s TV show Batcave set I mentioned, the series ended and everyone lost their jobs (or more accurately, didn't get their jobs back) because NBC didn't want to spend the $800,000 to rebuild the set that had been torn down when ABC cancelled the show. Building that Batcave would have not only been a significant construction project but it further would have kept a whole TV production company employed another year at least.
