Hey, what's in these things I put my head on every night?

Mr. K brought home 2 foam pillows for $10 from Costco, and my immediate reaction was "Gack. What do they out in them to be able to sell them for $5 each?" Then I remembered that I have actually never thought much about pillow insides.

I prefer feather pillows, but do they sweep the feathers up from the slaughterhouse floor? All these years, blissful ignorance. But now I need to know. Perhaps someone has worked in a pillow factory?
So what I'm looking for here is actual personal knowledge and/or experience. Or even unsupported opinions. I can find the history of pillows. I can find many, many claims for pillows that are on sale -- but how truthful are they likely to be? (I'm pretty sure that the worse the pillow, the more extravagant the claim.) Please tell me what you know.
