Weighted Hip Fins

For energy storage and eventually flying

I just went running up a hill with a gigantic set of keys in one pocket and an iPhone and harmonica in the other. On the way up the hill I found that I could maintain a rhythm that kept the pockets adaptively and widely flapping back and forth and that the overall effect was one of energy storage. Add stiffer pockets and shaped and weighted exercise gyros with further foam wings extended and you are well on your way to looking rediculous if not eventually human powered flight.

       Disappointed, I thought this was a SCUBA or snorkelling idea.

       Silly, impractical. Ridiculous even. What's not to like? [+]

       [normalzone] I suppose 'underwater diving' groups the pursuit nicely.

       Yes, and Texan and Californian are the same thing also.
