it's like the stat that the average person consumes X amount of hairs a week (forget the number).... your life wasn't horrible before you knew you were constantly ingesting stranger's hairs, just like your life was fine before you knew you were sleeping on 30 lbs of your own skin and oil.

okay, just kidding, i'm going to go vomit now...

All the ATOT clean germophobe freaks would be surprised to know this is probably correct.

These same freaks would also be alarmed at what dust is, and it is this dust that feeds all the organisms in your mattress along with their droppings.

And as they sleep all the bugs on them are doing their job. Feeding off the skin and life they pour onto their mattress for 8 hours a night. And pooping it out.

"So, a 400 year old mattress, if it stayed the same size, would become degenerate matter and further collapse to form a black hole that could eventually swallow the planet. Best to burn that sucker nice and early just to be sure."

2 litres of yellowish liquid is enough motivation for me to vacuum my mattress.
