Every man on Earth should have some kind of sanctuary to retreat to when they are in need of man time. Whether that time is spent watching football for 10 hours straight, drinking beers with the boys, or getting your Madden tournament on. Believe it or not wikipedia even has a page dedicated to the man cave and couldn’t describe it any better, as if you doubted wikipedia. A man cave (also sometimes mantuary) is a male sanctuary, such as a specially equipped garage, spare bedroom, media room, den, or basement. Man caves can be equipped with accessories such as refrigerators, vending machines, putting greens, giant TVs, musical instruments, pool tables, and entertainment centers. A man cave may also be fitted out with a bar and sports memorabilia. Upscale sports-themed furnishings are also available to outfit a man cave. These rooms are also often decorated by the male, with little-to-no female influence. Read that last sentence again ladies, you are to have no say or opinion on how our man cave looks. So if I decide to turn our basement into “The Goonies” movie set, equipped with water slides and a full size pirate ship hanging out the back of the house, that what it’s going to be.
According to psychiatrist and author Scott Haltzman, it is important for a man to have a place to call his own, referring to a male area to retreat to. Some psychologists claim that a man cave can provide refuge from stressful surroundings and be beneficial to marriage. So ladies, when we go down to our man caves with our buddies, crush a 30 pack, smoke a pack of Newports, and scream so loud watching the game it wakes the neighbors, we are doing it to strengthen our marriage, your welcome.

No this it not fake, a movie set, or photo-shopped. This is the firearms collection of the late Bruce Stern, an attorney, Wharton Business alumnus, and Vietnam War vet. After he passed in 2007, his massive gun collection fetched $12.7 million at auction. If zombies ever attacked, I think this man cave would be able to supply enough weaponry for a small militia.
