    I was thinking about that "Abilify" antidepressant ad (first post in this thread).

    Maybe they should include a free hammock with each prescription!

    And then commission a study to see if those who received hammocks did better than those without...

    just musing...

    I finally found one!
    Fantasy / Fiction writer Piers Anthony, in his book "Jumper Cable" in the Xanth series, Chapter 5* ('Ogre").
    The main character is a oversize Spider that is about the size of an average man, which he gets turned into & back to spider form, from time to time.
    Anyway, during the course of their travels, he makes hammocks for himself & one of his human female companions.
    After a while, the rest of the companions say: "Those hammocks, they look more comfortable than the floor. Can you make them for the rest of us? So he spun more hammocks & soon all of them were hanging. They had found a better way to camp out."

    THEY FOUND A BETTER WAY TO CAMP! Does that sound familiar?

    I had to read that chapter 3 times just to be sure, but indeed, it sounds like Mr Anthony took a page from our book! And, SILK hammocks, how luxurious is that!

    Hammocking. Approved by Whedon. - Here comes the squee...

    It's also worth noting that any marine warfare/master and commander/hornblower type stuff will mention hammocks, as they were used below decks.
