    What the heck, I'll bite

    First Name? Bunnspecial(plenty of people here know my real name, but I'd rather not share it openly)
    Do you have pets? No
    How many hours a day do you spend on the computer? By most standards, too many...probably 10+, sometimes 15, although plenty of days where I spend less
    How many computers do you own? Way too many...see https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/does-anyone-have-more-powerpc-macs-than-i-do.1816059/ That list is out of date, and doesn't include non-Apple stuff(although most of that's pretty obscure)
    What is your favorite color? Red
    What kind of music do you like? Country
    What are your goals? As I use to say every day when I was in Chemistry grad school and people would ask me what I was working on...Cure cancer and solve the world energy crisis
    Who are your heroes?
    What kind of sports are you into? College basketball
    Do you have any piercings? No, and don't want any
    Left hand or right handed? Right
    Any tattoo's? Same answer as piercings
    Do you enjoy PC, Console games or mobile games? None
    What are your fav games? None
    Married? Nope
    Have kids? Nope
    What languages do you speak? I'm a typical American-English only
    How many keys are on your keyring? I have four separate key rings and usually carry three of them(I have two cars, and only carry the keys to the car I'm driving at the time)...the most sparse one has four keys. I couldn't tell you how many are on my "big daddy" key ring that has most of my work keys. Oh, there's also the 5th key ring in my desk drawer with the not-so-often-used keys that has probably 20 keys on it. They won't give me a master key at work, but trust me with a key to 95% of the rooms in the building.
    What is your favorite beverage? Sweet tea, although I enjoy a good cup of coffee, Coke, Dr. Pepper, and the occasional RC Cola
    What is your hair color? Brown

    Gee by now doesn't everyone just make those up as they go, one set for each site that demands them? And store the Q&A in their encrpted password manager?

    Maybe not. I guess there are still people dutifully coughing up real data on demand.... what, have they been living in a cave?

    Anyway whoever thinks to have stolen all my identify info from all over the net will realize that I have led a busy busy busy life attending to upwards of a hundred of my "first household pet" with their hundred different names. And traveling all around the world to the hundred "location of first job". And making sure to thank all my hundred "first grade teacher" by their hundred different names whenever I dream of bumping into all of them at once while visiting some hundred-year-old (real) neighbor in a (real) nursing home...

    I can't imagine that this has much by way of success as a courting strategy, a dating strategy, let alone a social strategy.

    My cave is quite cosy, you know.

    (What is the female equivalent of man-cave?)

    It isn't much different unless you want to involve sexism and state a woman-cave is an arts and crafts den. Contrary to popular opinion, most men and women tend to share similar base interests which spread from there.

    Actually, this is pretty much my own view as well.

    For what it is worth, my question was both rhetorical and ironical in intent.

    I've always thought the term "man-cave" sounded way more homoerotic than its users probably intend…

    “He never lets me in his man-cave.”

    It likely goes back much farther than that but it's true enough that skills mastery starts with the essential, even if we don't know why some species engage in precisely this or that skill, like weaving as opposed to decorating. Consider the oriole weaving her hanging nest, or the creatures including birds that exhibit collecting and caching tendencies, or the bowerbirds that decorate their nesting area with found materials (colored pebbles, flower petals, assorted mosses).

    It's fun to read about the equivalent of identity thieves in the "less evolved" world: for instance parasitic birds like the lazy but adaptive cuckoo laying an egg in some other bird's nest, depending then for species survival on the hatchling's greater size to permit it to compete best for food brought by the host birds, or even to pluck up the host's own nestlings and throw them from the nest. And then there is the even more evolved cuckoo finch, which trades on the fact that a host bird imprints on her own eggs and may be influenced in that regard by noticing which kind of eggs in her nest are more numerous, sometimes removing and discarding her own eggs when the cuckoo finch has managed to get into the nest early on and to bump up its count of potential impostors.

    The non PC answer is the kitchen!
    The actual answer in most cases is the rest of the house!

    Well, I was about to add that re my woman-cave, entry is by invitation only, when I realised how that might, er, sound, or come across, on these threads.
