Mattress flipping

I am told that sleep is something that people do from time to time. I am further told that it is possible to sleep flat, on a structure called a mattress. If sleeping on mattresses is something you do on a regular basis, you might be interested in an amusing reflection on the group theory of mattress flipping.

(Via Ars Mathematica)


  1. I'll say that mttress flipping is one solution; but, what about just buying a NEW mattress?

  3. Its amazing how quickly a single change can impact your life. A couple of days ago I changed my mattress from a sprung one to a memory foam mattress. As soon as I got into bed the first night I could feel the difference! It kind of "moulds" itself to you and thus feels more like its supporting you rather than you lying on top of a slap of springs. Very happy with it.

  4. The only time I remember mattress flipping was when my little brother wet the bed, so my parents turned over the mattress. I on the other hand would just buy another mattress!
