    So Nasa are paying big money to anyone who is happy to stay in bed for 70 straight days.. reckon you could do it?

    It works out at just under £12k... but 2 months of straight lying down (if you're one of the unlucky non exercising ones) surely it would drive you nuts? Think I'd be genuinely tempted to apply if it wasn't in the US.

    That muscle twitch test sounds fucked up.

    Some people will do anything for money.
    Great read though.

    haaaaaaa [MENTION=48381]Alert[/MENTION]! nice one.

    so i read the thing above and hes not done it, hes one week in, live blogging the whole thing. apparently they have to sleep in six degrees incline and that fucks with your shit BIG TIME. read the blog its actually really interesting. and bizarre. NASA sounds like a tip top organization to work for.

    As much as I need the money I wouldn't want to put my body through that. Your muscles would suffer from atrophy.
    Not going to the gym and moving on to an office job has affected me quite a bit.
    Laying down for two months would make me look like a crackhead

    i think i laid down for 8 months once. like when this girlfriend i had left me, i straight laid down for a whole month, i know that much. barely stood up to eat, get alcohol, toilet breaks and shower. and i do mean barely. so then, when i was unemployed but on some serious dole, i did the same for 8 months. granted i had a house in the countryside of holland and had to commute into town to get drugs, and if i wanted to stay out i had to arrange to sleep at a mates house so that part was ten thousand times more arduous and i remember now, the main reason why i want my own place in central amsterdam. because staying out late, having nowhere to go, and no option but to adhere to your mates will until he decides its time to go home, is for fucking amateurs and teenagers, i do not want to be in that situation.
