Default NASA will pay you $18k to lie in bed for 70 days

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-204_162-57603872/need-some-time-off-your-feet-nasa-paying-volunteers-$18k-to-lie-in-bed-for-70-days/

they will be monitoring you and you have to stay in bed the whole time. eating, bathing, restroom will have to be done in bed. you will most likely be allowed to play video games, watch movies, etc while in bed

only healthy people are allowed "participants have to be non-smokers in healthy physical condition who pass the Modified Air Force Class III physical."

to apply, go to this page:

I'll do it if someone on ISH does it with me

The only part I can't accept is no alcohol

Any of you ever spent 5 days in a hospital bed? It sucks. 70? Not worth it. I would do it for a life changing amount of money. $18k is not life changing.

The hidden agenda is that they're preparing to send about 17,000 people to another world in an attempt to terraform the land and perhaps make it human inhabitable. Cryostasis isn't a reality yet so they're testing the limits of "average" citizens to travel great distances in extremely limited space.

john lennon spent his later years living on a bed, but he was allowed to sit up and move around.

i wonder what the exercise options would be for this NASA thing?

i applied for this 4 days ago. no reply yet
