If by chance your city or town is hit by an earthquake and for some reason, you plan to sleep through it, this could be like striking gold.
A company in Japan says it has come up with an earthquake-proof bed. Yes, finally! Now, on those days when you don't want to get out of bed, you don't have to - even if there's an earthquake.
The company says the bed is made out of aged cedar and is designed to withstand 65 tonnes of pressure. Apparently, even if your entire building collapses on you, you'll be alright.
As odd as this might sound, the company makes the point that many people in many countries can't afford to reinforce their homes to withstand an earthquake. So, it says this bed provides at least some protection, that might not be as expensive.
It costs just under $6000 and is available in a single and a double. The company says most of the inquiries it's received come from elderly people, who live in wood frame houses.
Of course, if you buy one, be prepared for your neighbours to pile into your bed, which could leave you with a tough decision - if there's not enough room, who do you kick out?
That question brings to mind a classic episode of Happy Days. In this one, Mr. Cunningham decides to buy a bomb shelter, to survive a nuclear attack by the Soviets. But when Richie tells his friends, they all assume they have a spot inside.
Fast forward to 15:15 for a trip down nostalgia lane.
