Green Pyjama Jobs: Dutch Student Gets Rich Staying In Bed


There was a funny Joy of Tech comic a few weeks back about the guy who had an "environmentally friendly day" by staying in bed and not using up earth's precious resources. He plans to survive by selling carbon offsets to people who will pay him to stay in bed.

Now a student in the Netherlands is actually doing it. Yde Van Deutekom, 22, from Zoetermeer, is selling advertising on a website featuring a webcam showing him in bed. He says ""Sleeping is just a hobby of me, and it is the only thing I'm very good at. Everyone is asking what I want to do with me life, but what I really want to do is sleep. I stay in bed all day, except for taking a shower, going to the bathroom and making something to eat. That's all I want to do. And I want to stay in bed until I'm very rich."


Mr. Van Deutekom has already earned £3,500 in 21 days from advertising on the site. Now that is what I call a green pyjama job. ::Splurch
