Molly - there are a couple of posts in Q&A regarding this medical research stuff, if that's what your on about. If I remember rightly - there were a few people who posted on here who had done it, and got paid quite a bit of money for it.

Most from the looks of it only wanted males, non-smokers between 22 and 30 yrs old or something.

LMFAO!!!!

OMG chortling away in an open-plan office...ho hum, never a good thing.

Yeah Molls as Larry said there was a thread about this a while ago. TBH I tried to sign up to a few in London and they never returned my emails. Hmph. Maybe the Scottish ones are more polite though...

Also I can only turn right. So to mask my embarrassment, and the pain in my thighs, I ski only when very drunk. I can recommend this wholeheartedly." Jeremy Clarkson

i used to do loads for the psychology department at uni -

go along, look at a screen and hit some buttons for half an hour, get some free food and 5 or 10 quid.

some people used to go to QMC, the big hospital in notts, and do the proper experiments you got good money for.
one guy had to take valium when he didn't need it to see the side effects.
another guy had to do the same with viagra. ahahahaaaaaaa imagine getting paid to have a boner for 2 weeks that's genius!

You'd have to spend your earnings on a third ski.

Aha. Perhaps if you'd said that at the beginning we would've all understood what you meant...?

You won't grow an extra leg. At least none of our participants did. They are usually pretty boring but good way to earn cash if you can be bothered.

To be honest, you probably would've loved my dissertation experiment. We paid £10 for smokers to spend 2 hours inhaling Nicorette thingies!
