I'd rather have a Rotary 2 post asymmetrical.

The concept of a "man cave" speaks volumes of how much the male species has been shaped to relinquish household power in our society.

"I'm Still a Guy"

When you see a deer you see Bambi and I see antlers up on the wall. When you see a lake you think picnics and I see a large
mouth up under that log. You're probably thinkin' that you're gonna change me. In some ways well maybe you might. Scrub me
down, dress me up, oh but no matter what remember I'm still a guy.

When you see a priceless French painting and I see a drunk naked girl. You think that riding a wild bull sounds crazy and
I'd like to give it a whirl. Well love makes a man do some things he ain't proud of and in weak moment I might walk your sissy
dog, hold your purse at the mall but remember I'm still a guy.

I'll pour out my heart, hold your hand in the car, write a love song that makes you cry. Then turn right around knock some
jerk to the ground 'cause he copped feel as you walk by.

I can hear you now talkin' to your friends sayin', "Yeah girls he's come a long way from draggin' his knuckles and carryin'
a club and buildin' a fire in a cave." But when you say a back rub means only a back rub then you swat my hand when I try.
Well now what can I say at the end of the day,"Honey, I'm still a guy."

And I'll pour out my heart, hold your hand in the car, write a love song that makes you cry. Then turn right around knock
some jerk to the ground 'cause he copped feel as you walk by.

These days there's dudes gettin' facials, manicured, waxed and botoxed. With deep spray-on tans and creamy lotiony hands you
can't grip a tackle box.

Yeah, with all of these men linein' up to get neutered it's hip now to be feminized. I don't highlight my hair, I've still
got a pair.Yeah, honey I'm still a guy.

Oh my eyebrows ain't plucked there's a gun in my truck. Oh thank god, I'm still a guy.

Household power is worthless to me. If she wants the house, let her have it. I want my little nook that I can control.

So, you're okay with the Queen holding the castle, while you have your little hovel in the village . . . while still paying for the castle?

I don't follow. If she works (assuming at some equal level), she should have part of the control. If not, what would her earnings buy her?

If you put down 50% of the enterprise, do you ask for 10% of the profits?

So, you're saying you only contribute in equal value of the "little nook?"

Put it this way, what goes on in my little nook costs about 1.5 times what she spent on the house maintenance. She earns about as much as I do and contributes into the family pot. My little nook just spent about $8000 in an engine and transmission this year. She has yet to break the $6000 mark even if we consider the composite material we redoing the deck with. So yeah, I keep pretty quiet about it.

Truer words were never spoken.......

Whether they contribute (mine does) to the money pot or not, a guy has to know which side of his bread is buttered.

oh yeah, my little 'nook' spends more money than my wife's too.

How much would the city you live in tax you per month--per yr for this $2700.00 cave. Better not build it in the mid east-thru mid America, first average straightline winds or even a minor twistee will blow this thing apart.

I'm pretty ok with it. While I contribute 100% financially I relinquish all control to her inside the house from the first floor up. The basement, garage and outbuildings are my fifedom.

My rationale is you couldn't pay me enough to watch the 4 monsters and she can't complain when I bring home my little projects. It's actually a small price to pay!
