Mr. Moonlight

http://blog.wired.com/wiredscience/2008/05/nasa-offers-500.html

For those that don't want to click, it's basically a report stating that NASA wants to pay $5,000 per month to have people stay in bed in their controlled environment in Houston for 90 days. Your feet will be slightly elevated, and you can only sleep for eight of the hours of the day. The rest of time, you'll basically be lying there unless they get you up to run a test on you.

I would SO do that! I'm very skilled at doing nothing!

However, I think my current job would seriously object to me not coming in for three months. Plus I'm certain that I won't pass the physical - you've got to meet Air Force standards, and I seriously doubt I even meet UPS standards. Then there's whole "living in Kentucky and not Texas" thing.

Finally, I think RedFaery would kill me. Or insist on a queen-size matress and join me. I honestly don't know...

Hi there stranger.

Bout time you got your own blog. Let me know if you need a link...or anything else, for that matter. I'm becoming fairly adept with customizing templates and can crank out a web page in short order now. Hope you are well.

Take care, Ray.
