Here is an idea for anyone who likes the sun...these wings would be engineered to your back, not for flight, but like giant leaves. Filled with chloroplasts these wings take the C02 and Water from your blood and combine it with sunlight to create carbohydrates...no need for food as long as you stay at the beach

       It just might be easier to genetically engineer a permanent suntan. But I note that you were watching London Fashion Week.

       Boned. 'Wouldn't it be neat if genetic engineering'...

       Maybe, but it's just a delightful little mental picture of the cute pixie chick with leaf-wings and a fur-and-chainmail bikini. :)

       I think the question here becomes whether or not to use suntan lotion. I'd probably snack a bit in order to keep my wings from burning.

       there goes the cabbage backs - they think theyre sooo cool. poncing about the beach with their green wings and total disregard for food. come on lets go swipe their moth repellant - that'll show em.

       How big and heavy would these need to be to replace the energy from food? You might need to go into a special trance to minimise energy use. As an alternative to genetic engineering, graft large leaves to the skin and add filters.
