Oh yeah I tried this once and only once. Seems like woman have a lot stronger will power when dealing with happy time or the lack thereof.

Maybe I forgot to snap though and swing my hips

I don't think the "happy" time thing is going to work. If I phrased it that way, it would be a win win situation for her. I'm not really one for ultimatums. I'm leaning toward getting one and getting a nice table cloth to drape over it, a sort of clever disguise, with jewels and sequins. That could work.

Better to ask forgiveness than permission.

Just tell her you were able to get it for free and you couldnt refuse.

it's something you want to do, it doesnt cost a ton of money, you let her do the stupid **** she wants to do....
don't ask. just do it. then you calmly explain why. you're not arguing ir defending yourself, because it's not up for discussion already.
if you're the man in the relationship this approach will suffice.

When the wife starts complaining about how expensive my hobbie is or how its wrecking her life Im going to start leaving magazines around the house from car and driver with a pic of the new Porsche 911 and then im going to put a smily face next to the 111,000.00 price tag! LOL

Tell her you either need a freezer or a divorce

You could always ask for one as a present. It sounds crazy, but it sometimes works. There's always the chance that she'll see how happy you are with the thing, and remind you who bought it. She feels good, you get your freezer, everyone's happy. If you can get one for free...you'll have to work the gift angle a bit differently. As for your electric bill, you will want to attach a temperature controller. You can buy one or make one (not too hard). With a temperature controller, mine barely ever kicks on. Most of the time it's only on when I open it up to stare at the carboy.
