    This exactly. I'm having a little impression on my white molding right now and getting scared the landlord may have a fit but that wont stop me!

    Did you see the awesome pullup/dip station in the blog the other day? Scroll down to see it. I bet it costs a fortune.

    Err .... This kind of bar doesn't necessarily work with all sorts of houses. I've cracked three door frames in my place with this very bar (just hoping the landlord doesn't notice at the next inspection).
    I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best.

    Hmm, doors are inanimate.... they feel no pain, so you can yell at them, slam them, and they feel nothing... Sorry folks, my smart-alec bone got the best of me!
