This is not a joke. Scientists are hoping to find men who will stay in bed for 60 straight days and nights.

The French scientists are seeking 24 fit and healthy men between the ages of 20 and 45. Participants will be asked to stay in bed for 60 days and nights, as they study microgravity's effects on the human body. Yeah, sure whatever that is...show me the money!

“The idea of this study is to reproduce the weightlessness of the International Space Station (ISS),” Dr. Arnaud Beck told French media

Guess what? They will pay participants $17,082. Yes, you could get paid to "Nextflix and Chill" all day.

It's not as easy as it sounds, however, because participants will be required to keep at least one shoulder in contact with the bed or its frame at all times. Yes, that means when you'll have to stay in bed when you are eating, washing or going to the bathroom.

How far do you think you could make it?
