NASA will pay you 18000 USD to stay in bed and smoke weed for 70 straight days

Usually at some point in the day (and for some of us, multiple points) many of us find ourselves wishing we could abandon our responsibilities to return back to our beds to live out the rest of the day under a quiet refuge of blankets and smoke weed. Despite the guilt of chronic laziness, a day in bed sounds pretty darn relaxing—if only we could financially support ourselves by doing so.

Turns out, NASA might have the answer we’re all looking for—although it might require a little more “relaxation” than originally imagined. NASA is currently looking for volunteers to participate in their “Rest Studies”, in which participants will have to spend 70 straight days in bed and smoke different types of cannabis, receiving $18,000 for the period of aggressive bodily atrophy.

Participants are allowed to read books, Skype, play games, as well as smoke cannabis throughout the duration of the study. Pretty much anything is fair game, so long as you remain in bed, earning a cool $1,200 per week…

So what are the exact purposes of these studies?

The experiments are designed to find ways of preserving astronauts’ health and safety during periods of extended space travel. “Head down” bed rest is a good way of simulating travel through zero gravity space. Think about it, zero gravity means zero weight or strain on your muscles. They also want to understand how marijuana will influence on the body.

It’s a more accessible way of analyzing the bodily changes that occur during space travel.

This study is designed to achieve three core tasks:

1) Understanding how one’s changing physiology in space may affect the process of certain missions.

2) Understanding the impact of one’s physiological state on their ability to perform in particular tasks.

3) Preparing countermeasures to combat any impairment that these physiological conditions may impose.

Within the experiment there are two study groups: exercising and non-exercising. While the exercising group will be subject to exercise training (on special equipment to maintain the laying down position and smoke cannabis), the non-exercising group will remain completely at ease.

The entire duration of the study actually lasts between 97 and 105 days, depending on whether you’re a non-exercising or an exercising subject, respectively. For the first 13 days for non-exercising subjects and 21 days for exercising subjects, you’re able to move freely (in and out of bed) within the bed rest facility.

However, after this period you will be prohibited from leaving the bed for the next 70 days, aside from a few specified tests, where you must lay with your head back and feet up.
Throughout the entire duration of the study, you will be subject to bone, muscle and heart tests, as well as tests of your circulatory and nervous systems, your nutritional condition, and your body’s capacity to fight off infections.

So is it worth it?

Although spending two months in bed would realistically be excruciating, at least you can rest easily knowing you’re making the sacrifice of grueling laziness for the purpose of furthering human space exploration. This is the only time you could claim to have helped send the first astronauts to Mars by doing absolutely nothing but sitting on your ass.

    1. Thank’s but no thank’s. As it seems that someone(s) already enrolled me involuntarily in some kind of experiments already. And therefore, I am at the receiving end of nonconsensual testing with an assortment of directed energy weapon’s, psychotronic mind-control technologies, and heavy helpings of gang-stalking to keep me contained while enduring the torture. But, I do appreciate the offer, especially if it was to be voluntary, and serve some “useful” purpose to humankind. I.F.

  1. Hello! My name is Anton! I am a student of the 5th course of the Institute Baikal Institute.Want to know more about the program and about my participation. I love USA and want to work with you! I’m not good at your language will learn! waiting for your reply.

    1. Hi Anton, this is the United States of America. You don’t need to speak the language, you just need to smoke weed and lay still for 70 days. You’re more then welcome to come to America, we’ve build our entire country on immigration, so as long as those redneck-fuckers don’t fuck the election up, you got the job!

  2. I am very keen to try this I’m from Singapore and I have never touched weed as it is illegal here in singaporw

  3. If I signed up for this, would I have to wear a catheter? Sounds interesting to do the study, but I wouldn’t be knee jerk about it right now. I actually don’t mind catheters, I just am curious.

  4. Hi my name is richard Paul hardwick and I am willing to try this experiment as I already smoke it myself. And for the greater good of man kind I always felt like I’ve been ment for more in my life time and maybe this is it.

  5. This is totally bullshit, people who volunteer will get addict to weed and get plenty of sickness, illness and diseases.

    1. Are you kidding me?? You can’t get addicted to weed lol like how old are you how do you not know that..? It literally CURES all kinds of illnesses and diseases not CAUSES them. Get educated please 🙂

  7. I am very! Intrested in doing this as i smoke weed all day everyday.. Soo this would! Not! Be! A! Problem! Get back to me when you can thanks…

  8. I would love to give astronauts the possibilities of improving space exploration and create new theories and methods for the safe use of cannabis!

  13. We live in Portugal, building a house, we would both like to participate because we could use the money for our future ecological recycled house, and would like to be in the excersice group

  14. I wouldn’t mind try out for the experiment for NASA. I just recently had surgery so i think i would be a perfect candidate. This would be a perfect way for me 2 bounce back with the money that i recieve. If i am able 2 participate in this event. I would use the money 2 try and start a small business.

  15. I have been an avid spokesperson for legalization in Washington state. I have written research papers on marijuana for commercial use and help for industrial use. I am a regular marijuana user in all aspects. I smoke it, cook with it ( did I mention I’m a veteran cook) I can infuse it, and I have become very well educated in the uses and different variations of marijuana and it’s strains. I am however in no means a lazy smoker. I love marijuana but I enjoy it more functioning. I ride my bike every day, I am constantly using my hands to build or create and my mind is constantly evaluating problems. I enjoy life and I am in good health. I would love to participate in it study in order to help further our education on this wonderful plant and I think it would be informative and beneficial to myself to see the results of an alternative lifestyle of my own

  16. I am obsessed with science and human progression as it is, but I would be thrilled to be part of such an experience! Please contact me ASAP about the details!

    Thanks so much!

  17. Very interesting …Love the universe and to study it.

  19. It’s my dream!!!))) I like smoke weed, I love to take part in scientific works and I’m an engineer of satellite and mobile communications in Moscow. Take me , for now I feel worthless…
    P.S. I do not need money!

  20. Posso dizer que eu estaria disposto a fazer esta esperiencia mais sei que aqui no Brasil nao vai liberar, mesmo esta esperiencia provar oque muitos sabem que o alcool sim e uma droga pior que a canabis e que o enquanto o governo nao receber um lucro nao vai liberar nunca…obs:mais ta bom do jeito que ta.

  21. How do I get this done? I would also like to refer friends. That would make the experience perhaps a tad bit easier if we are paired up in the same room that is


  23. How can I join it?

    I’ll be waiting for an answer.

  29. Where do I sign up? Very interested in the program and think that I will be a good test subject in this experiment.

  30. They are doing this experiment and you guys are the guinea pigs, to find out if a person could really travel that long. It’s a long ride and it’s not for just for the astronauts. It’s for your bigger people out there To get away from this world in times of danger. The danger to the world is already happening. And I doubt everyonecan go there. 70 days is about a time frame taken to travel to the other world.

    Think! God Bless

  39. My reasons for this are multiple.. I have never partaken in Cannabis.. But the healing effects are varied and disputable among western medicine doctors. I have had Psoriatic arthritis for over 25 years and while this test is to determine effects upon those involved in space travel.. it would also help in determining if it will help other disorders. Thank you for your consideration.

  40. Yes ,Please ,Thank you!
