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.

       This is a great plan. I'll take 2!

       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.

       One idea and one other anno since the fall of 2005? Watch this space for further messages!   

       Welcome back, [ivanx].   

       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! +
