This is a question Strange things you've been paid to do

I once spent two years being paid by the UK government to play Quake.

What's the strangest thing you've been paid to do?

i was once paid to take part in a scientific test
no biggy, my mate was doing it and i'd just started uni, so i could do with the money. it was to do with sleep deprevation, not bad, i'm used to sitting up until the early hours, so i though it would be money for old rope. My mate who got me involved slowy revealed details about it as the time got nearer.

1. it was taking place over 3 seperate 2 week periods, one in december, one in january and one in february, then we'd get paid at the end. not bad i thought, could have done with the money before christmas, but will survive.

2.as well as the spit samples we had to do every hour, we also had to do piss samples, fine i thought, i'm sure i could stretch to that.

3. we also needed to monitor our body temperature, fine i thought, until my mate told me that the mouth wasn't reliable enough to take a core body reading from. i asked him if i had to stick a thermometer up my arse every hour, to which her replied, "no, you'll be wearing a flexible probe, 24/7". the probe had a diameter of about 3mm, but made you feel like you had a shit half out of your arse.

needless to say, when february came we got our cheques (£450) and then spent the rest of the afternoon in the pub sinking pint after pint of cafferys with some other friends. we were very, very drunk by the time we left.
