Another good luck to Jonas!!! One of the few sane and coherent LJW/Big OTS! posters. (Or at least semi-sane. I guess you can't be completely sane if you post here)

I have a MCC - Men's Crisis Center. Qualifies for stimulus money - the Man Cave funding request was rejected.

Godspeed Jonas.

1000 pts to Roe for mentioning he has a multi boring machine on the same thread that multi mentions she is the proud possessor of a man cave.

"I have what I call a “Saturday Room” which is where I have all my woman/mother stuff and I go there on Saturdays to just goof around. "

The kitchen?

Gootsie, how about "A Saturday Room"? I had another name that was pretty harsh. But, since I know you and I know how sweet you are I would never say it. It certainly was the opposit of Man cave.

Praise the Lord, I am a single woman so I don't have to put up with any of this. I have been blessed. Good luck, Jonas.

Good luck Jonas - check back soon!

I have what I call a "Saturday Room" which is where I have all my woman/mother stuff and I go there on Saturdays to just goof around. Hubby unit doesn't care to be in there, although I do need some pictures hung.

What would I call it to be consistent with "man cave"?

There are a couple of lines in the movie Enemies of Laughter discussing writers in Hollywood all being Jewish. The Jewish director comes back with, "Why can't you Gentiles amuse yourselves?"

That Lifetime channel, man hating, women wronged.. and I wonder..who write this stuff? I mean...which group are we going to hold accountable? Did the Jews leave Hollywood? Or has another group moved in also?

Enjoy that for a moment or two. Generalizations..because they are such fun when you see them.

( I dread Lifetime, can we get that in a bumper sticker?)

I'll show you my scar if you show me yours (scar)...

Not a ManCave! 2 table saws, planer, shaper, mitre saw, band saw, 13 routers, 2 drill press, multi bore machine, dust collector. Tools, tools, tools! More Craftsman tools than Sears! My kids ask what I need all that stuff for. I say so they get to sort it out when I'm gone.

Paybacks!

I like how they put man cave in quotes, as if to say, "We'd never use this term, but we hear it's popular in some parts of the world."

Jonas, you should ask your surgeon if he has a "man cave."

Multi you are correct. My whole house is a man cave. My basement just happens to be the room designated for my workout equipment. Done in orange and black with Harley posters, a bar set up. More testosterone than a sperm bank. I also store me MC there during the winter months. It is great to be a man. No metro sexual for me thanks.

autie 4 years, 7 months ago

I believe the term mancave was coined by some smart alecky woman. A derisive term to define where her protector and provider had escaped to whenever her mother came to visit. It had to be a male coordinated environment that repelled the female of the species. Where men could drink beer and belch loudly, while passing gas and laughing about it, with no fear of retribution from those who normally would feign being offended. Maybe that's kind of like when I refer to the Lifetime Channel as the B*tch Channel.

Multi and Gootsie~ Naughty girls! ;-)

My husband and son do have a man cave and I am happy to send them to it. Hubby finished a nice big room, which had previously housed a lot of junk, crapola, dust, animal hair, etc., in the basement, so it's actually a huge improvement and will be a good selling point when we finally put this place on the market.

In this room, he has a crazy-expensive treadmill, other work-out items, a giant suede-covered beanbag chair with matching beanbag "footstool," the requisite ginormous TV, stereo and gaming equipment (wii and the like), a couple other comfy chairs, cool custom lighting, and a special-order flooring surface that is some kind of hard foam stuff. Good for exercise but also very attractive.

The walls have framed superhero posters, medals & such from athletic events (recent--he at least didn't dig out the high school stuff! ha), and, I'm not sure what else. I stay away.

Everyone who's been led down there for the grand tour following the completion of the room this summer has "ooooh"ed and "ahhhhhh"ed and declared that they want to put one in their house. Especially the women. Because if you let him choose his own floor covering, wall colors, ceiling materials, lights, and furnishings in one dedicated room, you can kindly but firmly tell him to run along when you're picking out these things for the rest of the house. ;-)

TOB, do you keep a 12 volt battery charger in your bunker per chance? A guy never knows when he might be in the wind with nothing but a paddle and the growler is on shore.

Single dude with man cave.. Why does a single man need a man cave? Are you planning for the future, or it that a leftover?

Gootsie, I wouldn't do it if I were you. (email me when you get back,use your cell for pics but turn off the flash,ok?)

I have a "workshop" detached from the house. However, not a lot of work gets done there. I think I will stick with workshop. Man Cave sounds like a term some metrosexual GQ guy created. I just can't picture 60 gallon air compressor, welders and roll-away tool boxes in a cave.
