Manuel Uribe's bed  
There's a puff piece from the AP about the world's heaviest man, Manuel Uribe of Mexico City, getting a van outfitted to carry somebody of his weight. He's in Guinness at 1,230 pounds, though he's reduced by more than 500 since then. The picture with the piece shows him doing simple exercises -- more difficult since he can't, y'know, stand up.

And if you examine the picture carefully, you'll discover what I did -- Manuel Uribe has a dungeon bed, top-rings and all! Makes sense -- I'm not sure where else you'd get a custom, heavy-duty welded steel bed.
