Lol :-)

As long as I can reasonably describe the gear as safety equipment, my wife is generally okay with it. Snazzy accessories for my motorcycle, or audio equipment is where I struggle...

Did you know that Wife Acceptance Factor had made Wikipedia? (Of course you did...) They include in the definition: The Wife Acceptance Factor is inversely proportional to the possible amount of conflict resulting from the different points of view. The lower the WAF, the more convincing needs to be done, or the more conflict arises from the acquisition or project.

It varies from W to W, but in my household -

WAF 1.0 : expensive meals out, family holidays, anything for the kids
WAF 0.5 : anything I can characterise as likely to get me home in one piece (good motorcycle helmet, climbing protection) or being healthy (climbing gym membership & fees)
WAF 0.2 : Anything else related to bikes, climbing, or otherwise likely to be classified as fun to do without the family
WAF 0.1 : giant ugly stereo equipment, music downloads, a bigger shed, a bigger/faste/more exxy motorcycle
WAF 0.0 : transsexual hookers, ketamine, bondage equipment, Lolita cosplay outfits (his or hers)
