Alcoholic Mike Allen suffers from several ailments that
keep him from being able to work, including degenerative
arthritis in his back. Allen doesn’t like taking pain
killers so instead he goes out every morning and picks
bottles and cans. He averages about $10/day which is enough
to buy a 6-pack of beer.

Cody Kurz lives a polyphasic sleep lifestyle. Rather
than sleeping 8-hours a night, he breaks his sleep into naps
throughout the day at 4am, 12pm, 5pm, and 11pm. By doing
this he gains 28-hours per week of waking life!
