Would Lie in Bed for 2 Months for $10,000?

by Storm Avery

NASA is looking for volunteers for a study on the long term effects of being horizontal for an extended period of time.

You would be required to lie in bed for 70 DAYS!  But they would compensate you with at least $10,000.

They say you can do whatever you want in bed as long as you remain horizontal.  You can watch movies, read a book, play video games, etc.  You would even be able to take a shower and go to the bathroom while in bed.  

Would you do this?  It sounds great at first, but I think it would get old real fast.  

If you're still interested, you can apply to be a volunteer here.
