I loved when Edward Scissorhands popped the waterbed.

wow 19991 is far off into the future

and my dad had a waterbed when i was a kid , but got rid of it because he was tired of changing the sheets on it and he moved quiet often so that made it very inconvenient

The only ones I know that are still milking a waterbed are extremely heavy, If your obese there is nothing that will be comfortable. For those that can afford it the solid latex beds are the best, they provide soft and support for all types of comfort and are hypoallergenic at a cost of between $3000 to $5000 dollars. Its unbeleivably comfortable in all climates.

We were married in 1986 and were gievn a waterbed for a wedding present. For awhile we loved it, then all of a sudden my husband and I began waking up soooo sore. We tried changing the amount of water to more or less, nothing worked. We finally sold it and bought a new regular mattress. Now we have a nicer type mattress and it is nice.

Ummm - I still have a waterbed - I'm not obese or anything. It's just what we have and it does help my back. I'd rather have a regular bed, but Just don't. Ack -

Do hotels, motels even offer waterbeds anymore as an option?......
Remember that was the big rage when you went on vacation?

I hate waterbeds too. Besides I only like antiques and they dont make antique waterbeds.
