An experimental Swedish art project will pay you to do nothing for the rest of your life.

Yes, you read that correctly... pay you to do nothing. The catch? Move to Gothenburg, Sweden.

According to the Washington Post, one lucky or extremely bored person will work this government-funded conceptual art project for the rest of their life. The employee in question will report to Korsvägen, a train station under construction in the city, and will receive a salary of about $2,320 a month in U.S. dollars, plus annual wage increases, vacation time off and a pension for retirement.

“The position holds no duties or responsibilities, other than that it should be carried out at Korsvägen,” the job description states. “Whatever the employee chooses to do constitutes the work.”

The downside is you'll have to wait until 2025 to send in applications. A draft of the help-wanted ad is already available online, according to Atlas Obscura.
