    It'd be a better deal if they trained you back into shape.

    That really doesn't amount to jack. $17k for 3 months equals about $189 a day. If you were paid via an 8 hour day you are talking about $23.61 per hour but since you are there every freaking day for every hour you are only really making about $7.87 per hour.

    $17k sounds like a lot but in the grand scheme of things, it really isn't.

    This has to be some kind of psychological experiment in disguise.

    I couldn't deal with my head being tilted down like that. I'd have a constant headache.

    Although, thinking about it, this gets me through the 3month borefest that comes with there only being one relevant sport on, in the middle of it's 6 month long season.

    Actually, for the time you're awake, and considering you don't have any bills to speak of (aside from student loans or car payments if you have them) it works out to about $24 per hour.

    17,000 dollars / 1440 waking hours = $11.81 per waking hour

    Then consider that a normal $11.81 per hour job will pretty much pay (barely) for one person's bills and food every month (I know because I'm in the situation at the moment).

    So, since you're not spending any of that money you're earning, as you normally would, double it. It's like earning $23.62 (11.81 x 2) "on the outside".

    Equivalent to $49,000k per year, no tax.

    I would need to learn more about the terms (do they feed us? what type of entertainment are we afforded? videogames? books? internet access?). The muscular hypertrophy would be a bitch, but I would make more money doing this than I would with a summer internship.

    I would have totally done this while I was laid off. Just gimme a damn PC, PS3, 360 or a hooker to go down on me once a week and I'm good.

    i'm curious as to when they will begin contacting applicants.

    also, what are you allowed to do while laying in bed? it looks like you'll be permitted to read (looking at the picture on the website) but what else?

    It's not like they are going to stop you from masturbating.

    This is where they lost me. What good is it to be stuck in bed for 3 months if you cant take your fleshlight?
