Lying on a trillion grains of sand feels better than lying on sheets with 3 grains of sand on it

Lying on a bed of 1000 nails feels better than lying on a bed of 3 nails.


Parson me if I’m wrong, but isn’t this basic physics? Force (body weight) on small area (few grains of sand) = large pressure (painful) Same force on large area (lots of sand) = low pressure (comfy)


I dont like the feeling of lying on trillions of grains of sand just as much as lying on a sheet with 3 grains


Speak for yourself I don’t even have sheets


Not necessarily! What if… those 3 trillion grains of sand have been sitting under the blazing hot sun for a few hours? I think I’d take the sheets over burning my back all to hell.
