Professional Mattress Jumper

Professional Mattress Jumper

The man who gets paid to jump on mattresses says you can stop laughing now. There is nothing funny about jumping on mattresses day after day. Mattress after mattress. People refuse to understand. ‘It’s work,’ said professional mattress jumper Reuben Reynoso. ‘It’s not for everybody. There is a right way and a wrong way to do it.’ Reynoso, who jumps on three mattresses a day, does it the right way. He doesn’t try for height. He doesn’t go ‘boing’ or turn a somersault. His 10 toes are not little piggies going to market. They are trained members of the team. It’s not a trampoline, for goodness sakes, it’s a $2,750 mattress. ‘This is not a game,’ said Reynoso, bouncing up and down. ‘Not to me’.

Sexy Couple

A few years ago, I made a big bedroom faux pas. I was hooking up with this guy—a friend/professional acquaintance—in my bedroom, giving him a little oral pleasure. He, uh, came to fruition in my mouth and as I was not yet advanced in the art of swallowing, I sat up immediately and spat the spunk right back on him. Needless to say, we never hooked up again—not that I wanted to. He tasted funky.

The lesson learned: swallow or don’t swallow, but seriously, pick one and stick to it. Because dudes don’t want you spitting out their manly fluids on or anywhere around them. After the jump, I polled some fellas I know about what else they don’t want a woman to do during sex.

1987 was the year when the first 350 tons ground effect “ship” from the series of Soviet battle missile carriers was produced. It was called Lun after the Russian name for a bird of prey – hen harrier. Another name for this vehicle was Project 903. It carried 6 Moskit cruise missiles (SS-N-22 Sunburn in NATO classification). Hitting four of them causes inevitable sinking of a vessel of any know type and size. The second Lun-class battle aircraft was supposed to be produced in several years but due to the end of cold war and partial disarmament the project was changed to a rescue aircraft and it was never finished.

One of the greatest mysteries of life surrounds the process of death.  No one can be sure what happens when you die, but the final moments of life are usually filled with honesty.  Some people are given the chance to prepare for death, while others are not.  A person’s final words are extremely revealing.  These words give a glimpse into the individual’s overall feelings and experiences.  If a person is murdered or dies suddenly, their final words help show exactly what they were thinking and feeling as they passed.  It has long been common practice to document the final words of our loved ones.  This list documents some famous last words and quotes.
