Tempur-Pedic Unboxing!

posted by on July 26 at 0:03 AM

It’s finally here!

See all the exciting details of this long-awaited space-age product after the jump.

I can’t believe they just give this stuff away.

Make a note of it.

This is going to be so freaking great.

Lotta paperwork.

I'm going to make a very prudent decision.


Convenient price list.

These all look the same to me.

"Feature-by-feature Guide" turns out to be more of a marketing thing.

Here we go. The real deal.

Gotta watch the video before I try to use this thing, don't want to blow my head off.


Okay, fuck the video, I'm squeezin'!!


The famous wine test.

FUCKING HELL TONY! Don't you know that people who use the Bold tag are FUCKING PROFESSIONALS??

(Not to mention italics tags, which my "REAL" namesake FUCKING INVENTED!)

NO MATTER WHAT, JUST REMEMBER: beds are beds, but Temprapedic will help you fuck a hooker while your wife is sound asleep with a glass of wine.

Yes, brilliant. NO DISC is what makes this post.

Worthy to be in the ranks of an unboxing on Gizmodo or Engadget gadget blogs.

Now the real question: How can you masturbate with it? Now get to work!

Good luck sweating to death. My partner and I lasted about 3 days on a similar bed.

Enjoy the massive amounts of junk mail they are going to start sending you. I get a ton of it for just asking about the item.

I'm laughing oh so hard right now.

I can't wait for Tempura-Pedic beds. The comfort you've always sought but with easy access to delicious nuggets of deep fried tempura batter right underneath you!

Brilliant. I love the fake NASA logo.

I lol'ed.

YUCK!!! get a natural latex bed, it's a bit fimer but still gives, should last 10 years longer, it's not as HOT as the TP, and isn't made of nasty nasty nasty GASOLINE! so it does NOT off-gas titty and lung cancer cells!!! I got mine @ Soaring Heart in Fremont in March or so and it's pretty bad ass!!!

Do not be alarmed. I have no intention of buying an entire bed made of this stuff. This 3"x2" block will be plenty.

The logo may look fake, but it does in fact denote an actual certification of the product by the "Space Awareness Alliance", a consortium of companies in the aerospace industry aligned with NASA (Boeing, Lockheed, et al) intended to promote to the public the spin-off benefits of various technologies originally developed for the Space Program.

Visco elastic foam was originally developed in the early 1970's as part of a project managed by NASA's Ames Research Center to create a substance that could provide support to astronauts during high g-force maneuvers such as lift-off and re-entry. The idea was to allow for small movements without creating "pressure points" that might restrict blood flow, as is the case when custom molded traditional foam padding is used. However, there's no evidence visco elastic foam was ever used under operational conditions, mainly because of the out-gassing issue noted by an earlier poster.
