Remember the Tempur-pedic ad where they place a wine glass on the mattress and jump up and down? No spill.

Let's say you live near the San Andreas fault and go to sleep on one of these things. There's some slippage, not the big one but a good jolt. Would you feel it?

Put the TemperPedic on an oscillating conveyor belt and tell me what happens to the wineglass.

I don't have a conveyor belt or a Tempur-pedic, but my Sealy has seen better days. I might give one a test drive.

If the folks at Tempurpedic got together with the folks at Blendtec; now that would be entertainment.

Depends on how drunk you were when you passed out.

I've slept through a typhoon inside of a rickety 2nd story shack 'house' with no insulation or screens and walls that you can see daylight through. I don't think an earthquake would wake me up unless the roof fell on my ass.
