For some people, a dream opportunity is now being offered, but you need to go overseas to take advantage of it.
French researchers are offering to pay volunteers 18-thousand dollars for doing nothing. The catch is participants are required to lie flat on their backs for two months. It's all part of a study on the effects of microgravity.
Scientists at the Institute for Space Medicine and Physiology are recruiting healthy young men for the 60-day experiment. The study is aimed at finding ways to counter the effects of long-term weightlessness in space.
Think of it as a “flat” fee for relaxing. You may remember that NASA did a similar study back in 2013.
I'll tell you, I have zero interest in this. I've been thinking about the "Golden years" for a while now and never see myself as retiring, so how can I do nothing for 2 months. I have to be doing something at all times. Nope, I pass!
