NASA Pays "Pillownauts" Well To Lie In Bed For Weeks On End

In order to study the long-term effects of micro-gravity on the human body, NASA is looking for a few lazy people to lie in bed all day sleeping, watching TV and playing video games.
Apparently, the job pays as much as $160 a day—which means I could earn an extra $5,000 per month writing for Giz while lying down and peeing into a bedpan. Sounds like a dream come true, but I will not be signing up. You see, these "pillownauts" experience nasty side effects like sore feet, muscle weakness, headaches, toothaches and runny noses/eyes. Plus, I would think that lying on your back for weeks on end like that would drive you to madness.
