It’s crazy what people can get paid for these days! These strange jobs go from easy, like getting paid to watch TV, to totally crazy – like number 1 on the list.

10. Professional Sleeper. In Finland there is a hotel in which you get paid to test the comfort of a mattress. The people will each sleep in a room to test the bed. These people earn 15,000 a year. You get paid 15,000 dollars to sleep.

9. Dry Paint Watcher. This is a job. A real job. You have to sit outside or in a house and watch paint. Some people do this when they get bored. You get paid $40,000 to $60,000. Just to watch paint.
