Dream Job Pays You $17,000 To Stay In Bed For Two Months

Some people dream of non-stop thrills and adventures in far away lands. Others dream of fabulous wishes. Me? I dream of a life where I never have to leave my bed, yet am still able-bodied enough to, say, walk to my favorite deli for the occasional cup of coffee.

Which brings us to this dream job in France. You can get paid about $17,000 for two months in bed. According to the New York Post, it’s a study about the effects of “microgravity” on the body for long durations of space travel by the Institute for Space Medicine and Physiology in Toulouse, France.

“The idea of this study is to reproduce the weightlessness of the International Space Station,” Dr. Arnaud Beck, who is leading the experiment, told the France’s 20 Minutes.

For doing essentially nothing, the volunteers will be paid around $17,000.

Candidates must be healthy men between the ages of 20 to 45, who do not smoke or have allergies. Men need not apply if their body mass index isn’t between 22 and 27.

During the study, the men will have to eat and perform all bodily functions in bed for two months. The participants will then spend two weeks undergoing tests to measure the effects of weightlessness.

Yes, this is real and you can sign up right here. It is literally the perfect job for someone who loves Netflix. You can finally watch Friday Night Lights, West Wing, and Breaking Bad in full, along with basically everything Netflix has put out in the last three years.

Pretty much a dream job.
