So we were looking at Sleep Number mattresses...
This is a discussion on So we were looking at Sleep Number mattresses... within the Off Topic & Humor Discussion forums, part of the The Back Porch category; ...and my husband and I volunteered to find our "sleep number." He laid down on the test mattress, and the lady showed us a screen ...

I had to really sink into the mattress for that little red and yellow blob to disappear on the screen. She just said, "Yeah, I have scoliosis, too."
Those were very nice mattresses... and expensive.

I was up North working on tall deer fences for a blueberry farm. At some point my buddy came over to help (it is his parents' retirement business) and said "dude, you're printing."
My tshirt had ridden up and the was tucked between my gun and myself. Might have been like that an hour or more. I was working on the street but traffic was light. :)

That's another good answer when someone asks if you're carrying a gun -- "No, that's my scoliosis . . . "

Hey, my number is 45! (I carry 9mm though) But I did remove my gun before testing the mattress. Two years using it and very happy with it.
You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.

That's a great story. I didn't see it coming.

If you're seriously shopping - the same mattress has been used by Nancy and I for quite awhile. We love it. I like firm (100%), while she likes less firm.
At 50 + years of trying different mattresses, these (Select Comfort) are great. We've had them all at one time or another, from expensive inner-spring to cheap inner-spring, a "knock-off" of a Select Comfort, to Tempurpedic, to floors. Never had a water bed (my lower back said "Yuk").
The Select Comfort gives me what I need for my lower back, while the dual control allows Nancy to have hers where she wants, to avoid the hip pain.
It's too funny their gauges picked up on your "scoliosis", although that is not a problem to tease about.......

From "Mr. Mom:"
So, what'd you shoot him with, a .38?
Yeah, .38, .39, whatever it takes...
A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

We have one.
Yep, expensive. It's worth it though if you need one and my wife does. She has neck and shoulder problems.
The "raise your head" and feet feature is nice.
I'd pass on the vibrating massage and wave feature.
One thing to keep in mind though.
When you but one with the risk free - try it for 6 months free (or whatever) the "money back" return is for the mattress only and does not include the bed frame.
Just a heads up on that because the deluxe frames are expensive but, they are from a different manufacturer.
Really excellent quality but costly.

At least you didn't drop your's in the floor like I did.
I would love to see a pic of that screen. Blue outline of a gun! HAHA

I like mine. Number 60. Tilting option is good. Never use the massage or wave.
June 5th, 2007 08:33 PM
I use the wave all the time, but I don't have a Sleep Number bed. I have the full motion waterbed. I have been sleeping on a waterbed for over 35 years. Bought the first one in Monterey, CA in 1971 while at Ft. Ord. Every time I have to sleep on something else I realize again why I have a waterbed.
