Travel Motion Simulating Bed

Some people can't sleep at all in their bed at night, but when you put them in a car, train or plane they drop off immediately. Those sleep-noise machines go only part way toward solving this problem facing much of humanity (and huwomanity too). We at SqueakyWheels Inc offer the solution you have been looking for (or has been looking for you): the Car, Train and Plane-Simulating Bed, in which the mattress platform is mounted on rotating pads at each corner, whose dynamically variable lumpy shape simulates quasi-random rocking, swaying and vibrating motions much like your favorite sleep-inducing conveyance. For the plane version we offer at modest extra charge the simulated sounds of crying or screaming babies, drunks calling for more wine, and nervous passengers talking too loudly to their unwilling neighbors.

       Those squeaking sounds coming from my bedroom all night? That was my... uhhh... travel motion simulating bed.

       [+] I love it! I wouldn't admit this to my friends but sometimes when I am in bed falling asleep, I like to imagine that I am sleeping in the back of a luxury RV on an overnight trip while being driven to my destination.

       Back when I was a wee lad, when cars were solid steel, ran on pure petrol, and had no seat belts, I used to sleep curled up on the floor board behind the driver's seat, where my invincible Dad was driving. Warm and cozy there it was.

       Clearly, a bad bearing or two helped shape your subconscious mindset during those crucial formative years.

       [+] brilliant.   

       Of course you'd have to keep a jerry can of diesel handy to keep the 2-71 from conking out during REM.

       Internet anonimity is the natural evolution of what my grandfather called 'foxhole honesty', methinks.
