You can always get married and have your spouse pick up the tab for your life.

Starting a business is all fine and dandy, but if you slack off too much you'll still not be getting too much work for your company. So technically it's like getting fired without being fired.

Tenured academics and carrer government employees spring to mind.

There was once a guy who worked for the gvmnt in ny for 15 years and collected a 6 figure salary with no job discription. He would just come every once in awhile to be seen lmao.

Well I read a story about an Indian government employee who didn't show up to work for 20 years and still collected a paycheck the entire time so yes
Story is here: https://www.cnbc.com/2015/01/09/government-fires-employee-who-skipped-work-for-24-years.html

Serious note: if you become your own boss you can never technically get fired, although you could go bankrupt. Large amounts of $ typically doesn't come without a large amount of risk. *shrugs*

I'd kind of like that. It would make me go numb. The hour spent commuting home for me is the worst part

I don't think so, at least not in America, though there are certain jobs where you have a longer leash than most, and it will take extreme laziness and lack of production for it to happen. Nevertheless, I'm quite sure it's possible to get fired for every job and if it's one where you are the boss for, the clients will make that decision.

My brother did security for like 10 years. I'd say you aren't too far from the truth.

That's nothing. Around here, get a Party membership card and a government job. I'm thinking of a certain university administrator who was AWOL and unreachable for something like a year and still got full pay. He even won an award for excellent management during it. (You probably think it's funny and that the place was better managed with no-one there. Nope. It was a real, necessary post and the place was being badly mismanaged.) Top Party officials routinely get appointed to the boards of large companies (especially government-owned) where they each draw an enormous salary from several (even dozens) of these which they supposedly oversee. Walk into almost any government building and you'll see one old-timer working while all the rest of the staff lounge about.

In the US, I recommend a tenured "academic" post in something made up (you know the ones) where you can just stand in front of the class and spout dogma without either evidence or reasoning.
