This is going to redefine the definition of what a “dream job” really is for many people. While many are out there looking for the highest paid job with the least effort possible, there’s no way that you can beat this gig.
Turns out NASA will be your employer. Your duties will include
staying in bed for 60 days! Yes, that is correct. A job where you can
actually sleep in, literally. No more nasty alarm clocks where you get
up and go through that miserable morning routine. With this gig, you
simply go back to bed. Oh, and the pay? A hundred grand!
It’s called their “Bed Rest Studies.” And while it indeed sounds like
a dream, there are some catches. As in you have to literally remain in
bed for the full 60 days. You might think this means that you are only

You basically get to watch TV and play video games otherwise. You get

Apparently the research will help NASA figure out what happens to
astronauts during the long periods of space travel, and there are 3
goals to the study:
1. Understanding how one’s altered physiology in space might affect certain mission protocols.
2. Understanding the importance of physiology in the ability to complete certain tasks.
3. Preparing countermeasures against potential physiological impariment caused by the environment.
Exercising and Non-exercising are the two different categories. The
exercise group can work out using specific equipment. This allows them
to be somewhat active while lying down.
The non-exercise group get to be the real slackers. No exercise for
them as data will be collected on the subjects’ bones and muscles. Also
data on their circulatory, cardiovascular, and nervous systems will be
You up for a massive payout while kicking it in the sack? Share this
with friends and family so they too can manifest their inner slacker
while getting paid!
