Nuclear pillow

stays warm for 20 years

I keep a pillow between my legs as I side-sleep. This keeps me in a comfortable posture, reducing hip and knee pressure. Still, the pillow inevitably slides out from my legs during the night. After I notice and put the pillow back in place, it's fracking freezing cold! I instinctively push away the pillow, getting into a cycle of aversion and attraction until I muster the will to live with a cold pillow for a few minutes.

The solution is obvious: a cord-free pillow, heated by an internal nuclear reaction.

       Sew an elastic strap or two to the pillow? Don't forget to remove it if you go for a piss during the night.

       Those chemical hand-warmer jobs can last a good while. Perhaps something like that?

       Also doubles as a sterility inducer.

       And, with a good strong flashlight, you've got everything you need for a cloud chamber! Yay, alpha particles!

       Yeah, alpha particles are the best. So much better than beta.

       It took seven years to come up with the nuclear pillow, but only seven seconds to nuclear pillow-fight.   

       It will feel just like sleeping on a cloud... a mushroom cloud.

       ...and then you fall-out of bed.   

       Badum-tish!

       This is a rads idea.

       If the radiation were strong enough, it might double-up as an effective form of male contraception/mutant offspring initiator.

       A very complex answer to a rather simple problem. Yay! +
