Those of you who know Lay well know that he does love his sleep. I think I might have found him the perfect gift…but for $20,000 – $50,000 for an iPod compatible bed, I’ll be asking for donations.

Lot’s of fun stuff is always announced and show cased at the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, and this past week’s show was no exception. Leggett and Platt Bedding Division introduced the Starry Night Sleep Technology Bed.

This thing is a horizontal temple of technology packed with high-tech toys, including WiFi connectivity, a surround sound speaker system, an LCD projector, dual temperature controls and DVR capability. It also features a built-in iPod dock.

On top of all that, the bed has vibration detection. This means that if a sleeper is detected to be vibrating the bed (most likely through snoring) half the bed will automatically be raised 7-degrees, returning to its original position once the snoring stops. I wonder if it pops pop-corn and makes sandwiches…you may never have to get up.

Hotels Now Offering Sex Kits Instead of Bibles?

This must be from the “are you shitting me” category. Krazy Kristian Kook, Don Wildmon, of the American Family Association is now warning that hotels are taking out the Gideon Bibles in favor so “intimacy kits.” In one of their many “Action Alerts,” Wildmon raises the alarm based on the following?

For instance, at New York City’s trendy Soho Grand Hotel guests can enjoy a gourmet mini-bar, an iPod, a flat-screen TV and even the company of a complimentary pet goldfish.

OK, I guess the mini-bar can be used to get a little drunk, thus lowering inhibitions. I’m sure the iPod is loaded with that evil rock music that just makes people strip nekkid and have depraved sex, and of course the vile “all sex all the time” TV programming on Comedy Central is quite the marital aid, but for the life of me, I can’t quite figure out the complimentary pet goldfish.

I never really expected to write a post that included Goldfish, sex and iPods as tags. Leave it to good old Don to come through.
