The million dollar mattress.........

Million dollar mattress in Israel

Million dollar mattress in Israel

Add a CommentShareThisFeed Israel makes political and security news daily, but this story tops it all: Searchers are desperately looking for a ‘Million Dollar Mattress’ in Israel.

A generous daughter bought a new mattress to surprise her old mother, who'd been sleeping on a lumpy bed. Unfortunately, once the old mattress was hauled away and the new mattress securely in place, the mother revealed her life savings - worth $1 million - had been stuffed into the old one.

With the help of workers from the trash company, the lady has been searching. She identified three potential mattresses, but none thus far have turned out to be the one.

The mattress is in a landfill in which 2,500 tonnes of waste are disposed of every day.

"There will never be a really free and enlightened State until the State comes to recognize the individual as a higher and independent power, from which all its own power and authority are derived, and treats him accordingly." --American author and poet Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862)

It's an AIPAC conspiracy.

Go figure, one can learn a lot from the elderly.

I wonder how many people are clandestinely crawling around that landfill at night looking for it for themselves.

I'd bet the guy who took it down the tip knows where it is.

Of course he's now sitting on a beach at a 5 star resort in the Cayman Islands.
