Would you want to have wings?

surreptitious surreptitious
A brilliant scientist offers to graft a pair of wings seamlessly onto your back. The wingspan would be roughly proportional to your height and weight, however the musculature would be different (stronger) than a typical bird's meaning that they wouldn't have to be quite as large as one would expect in order to lift our poor human bodies, which are quite unsuited to flight. They would fold up neatly, but could not easily be hidden without a large, bulky sweater and a backpack (or something). You would still get cold/tired/hungry etc, though flight would help you burn calories incredibly quickly, making this a great workout. You'd obviously have to adjust your clothing to accommodate them, and it's possible that other brilliant scientists might try to hunt you down and study you. That being said, you'd be able to freaking fly from place to place. In this little hypothetical, would you be interested in having wings? If so (or if not), would you change your mind if the doctor offered other surgeries, such as hollowing out your bones or increasing your lung capacity? This is all completely safe, there will be no risk of complication aside from the anesthetic and recovery time will be fairly minimal. It'll take a while before you really learn how to use your wings, but once you do, the sky's the limit (I made a flying joke, guys!).

I don't think I'd be interested. I don't really like standing out and it seems like it would be pretty inconvenient to get all of my clothes altered, plus I don't know how I'd be able to drive a car with my wings in the way of the seat.

I hardly touch the seat at all when I'm driving anyways, so I'm lucky in that aspect but I can see what you mean about standing out. I love that sort of thing, so I'd definitely want to be a be-winged and be-dazzled individual. Honestly, I've been working around unconventional fit issues for half my life by now anyways, so it wouldn't be too much more effort for me to make alterations to the back of something as well as the front.

How could you NOT want wings?!? :-P
The idea of unnecessary surgery makes me REALLY uncomfortable, but for that, I think I'd have to get over it!

I'd do it! Just think, if nothing else, women would have a way to get away from potential assailants, (provided they didn't already know of your ability)! Now, I wouldn't be the first person to do it, I would let others be the experimental subjects to work out the kinks. I'd never have my bones hollowed out, but might consider an easy way of increasing lung capacity. Would these wings have feathers? Would I molt? As pretty as feathers are & as unattractive as membranes would be, I'd probably opt for membrane or scales. Just think, if there was an earthquake, you could take to the sky! I figure they'd also be just darned fun! As for driving, I assume if they can engineer this, they can figure a way to have the wings fold horizontally in an accordion fashion, so as not to take up much space, I doubt they'd prevent anything we normally do except sleep on our backs, until we got used to the sensation.

Oh hell yes. Wings and a prehensile tail have always been two thing I wanted (if I could pick my Mutant Power, that'd be it). If they figured out how to grow 'em onto us, I'd be in line begging them to take my money!

I don't think I'd want wings. A big butt, skinny tummy and big boobs - now that's magic

I love to fly and would love wings but wouldn't want to be a specimen for others to examine. I'd much prefer the anonymity of a private life without wings.

Assuming there was easy access to clothes that worked with wings and wing care wasn't too obnoxious, definitely.

That would be awesome, but I'm afraid of heights so it would be pointless for me.

I'd probably take it. The real question is, if he can put them on, shouldn't he be able to take them off as well?

Hmm, I pictured them with feathers, but a nice, shiny scale would be pretty awesome too! You could be like a dragon girl! Especially because without feathers creating bulk, you'd probably be able to fold them up pretty small. I like the idea of feathers because I know that birds can control bits of their feathers to help them have more control (okay, that's explaining it really poorly, but trust me, it's a thing), but scales or membranes would be shiny and awesome.

And just as hard to find appropriate clothes for! xD

I'd love to be able to fly, but with wings, it would be impossible to jerk off I'd imagine....and not touching boobies and pussy...so pass.

GONE! GONE!
Heck yeah I would!

But isn't fear of heights usually really a fear of falling and hurting yourself? After you got used to flying for awhile (only a few feet off the ground), wouldn't heights stop being so scary when you know you could just easily fly down anytime you want, or stop yourself if you fall?

I'm terrified of heights and I think flying would be a great way to combat that!

Can I like be a superhero? I'd do it if I could be a superhero because that sounds like some Marvel stuff right there.
Also can I choose the color of my feathers because I want pretty ones.


Being hunted down and studied sounds uncool in general and finding clothes sounds hard. And I'd probably be too tired all the time to go flying around. But honestly yeah I would because flying would be frickin awesome and convenient. I've been flying in lucid dreams and it was pretty nice. I could also pretend to be an angel and get a religious cult following. I am enjoying the possibilities here.

A religious cult, smart, that would give you the protection you would want from the specimen people! What are you going to do about the scientist spilling your secret, angel? Gonna take him out? Work with him/her & create an army of acolytes? You better get this idea over to Marvel or something, because between you & surreptitious, you've got something here!

Oh my gosh, how much fun would it be to warn people that they were doomed if they continued on their hateful, bigoted path (*cough* WBC *cough*). I don't think that any scientist would object to us trying to squash THAT movement.
