Hey! So, who wants to live in the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry? No, like, literally live there. From their site:
We’re looking for someone to take on a once-in-a-lifetime assignment: spend a Month at the Museum, to live and breathe science 24/7 for 30 days. From October 20 to November 18, 2010, this person’s mission will be to experience all the fun and education that fits in this historic 14-acre building, living here full-time and reporting your findings to the outside world.
Also they give you $10,000 at the end, a lifetime membership to the museum, and probably a bunch of stuff from their gift shop. (I always want to buy something at science museum gift shops, but I never know what I’ll do with it.)
Interested? (Actually, a more revealing question would probably be to ask who isn’t interested in doing this and why do they hate science so much?) You better hurry, as the deadline for applications is on August 11th.
One time Chris Greenland thought he lived in a museum but it turned out he was just a character in a children's picture book.
