    I remember my biology teacher calling me nuts, because i’ve only asked if it might be somehow possible for animals to be photosynthetic ten years ago. In your face Mr. Isenberg!

    If humans could harness sunlight wouldn’t we have a lower EQ as a result. In a hypothetical situation of course.
