The male mid-life crisis takes many forms, most of them fairly ridiculous. As a male in mid-life, I have so far resisted the more extreme versions but I have to admit I've been tempted.

The more clichéd scenarios involve the purchase of low-slung sports cars (often in fire-engine red) which the middle-aged owner has some difficulty getting into and out of.
