Where Do You Have TVs?

In the last 5 years, mini-LCDs have really proliferated so it's not as rare to have a TV in a car, etc. But does anyone here have TVs in odd places, or maybe you expect to see a TV somewhere, but don't have one?

I don't have a TV in the main floor of my townhouse. Just too much damn racket if I'm working or cooking etc. Otherwise, pretty straightforward: one in the bedroom, one in the HT room.

I have 2 leftover 13" TVs which I have been wanting to put somewhere unusual. For example, in a bathroom. Anyone have any creative ideas?

1 [60" WS HDTV] in the living room;
1 [13" tube] in the kitchen;
1 [29" tube] in the bonus room/playroom upstairs.

DVD players on the LR and BR tv's, basic cable on the kitchen and BR ones, new video game system on the big tv, old ones all hooked up to the upstairs one [octopus nest back there].
Portable DVD player that is mainly used in the car on long trips, but I have taken it into the bathroom before when soaking in a tub.
I don't want a tv in the bedroom, and I don't want my son to have one in his either.

There's a guy on my street who's got at least 4 tvs all hooked up, on top of each other, in his garage, across from a 'garage couch'. Apparently its his 'sports lounge' or something.

1 48" Rear Projection HDTV in (mostly finished) basement HT
1 27" CRT in living room
1 27" CRT in bedroom
1 17" (I think) CRT w/built-in DVD in basement (wall mounted near treadmill and home gym)

Almost forgot about my new toy. 3.5" LCD portable digital video player. It has a TV tuner, so it should count.

I will say that getting the TV out of my bedroom was probably my best move, ever. I used to lie in bed and just watch for hours, never getting to sleep. It's so easy to just keep flipping channels all night.

57" Hitachi in the HT room
27" Philips in my computer room
55" Sylvania in my son's room for movies
20" Sony in my son's room for gaming

I also have a few bubblescreen type sets laying around that will almost certainly never be used again, but aren't worth the effort of trying to sell.
To me it's interesting to see just how many DVD players people have in their homes as well- the numbers seem to be attaining the same profusion they had in VCR days.

Three DVD players in HT room
One in my son's room
Two in my computer room

More so, it seems to me. We've got two standalones players and a portable, and two desktop and one laptop computer with dvd drives. Even when we were into VHS, we only had one at a time at one house [although the last one we got was a dual-deck.]

i'm not a huge tv person, I only watch ESPN/FoodNetwork/HGTV and if I could pay $15/month for just those 3 I would. I guess you can tell who has families and who are single =) Hell, I don't even have cable or satellite since I moved 3 months ago.

32" Sony Wega in Master Bedroom (not even used)
57" Hitachi CRT in Living Room (the home theater)
