  1. If forced to make a choice, would you rather be deaf or blind? I would have to say deaf myself.

    (No, I'm not trying to be insensitive. I was thinking about this on my way back to the office from the bookstore)
     
  2. Is someone forcing you to make that choice? I'd pass on both.
     
  3. I'd rather be blind, to be honest.

  5. Sometimes.... both.
     
  6. does "none of the above" count on this one? ;)

    but I guess I´d rather be blind, since music is such a big part of my life... :)

    Great answer, reedo!
     
  10. How about we split the difference? I'll take deaf in one ear, and blind in one eye.

    If I could do that, I´d do it but if I would have to choose only one thing I´d choose blindness...

    Can't imagine a life without music. Just playing the same old tunes in my head would go boring quickly. So, rather blind than deaf.

    AFAIK, only during his last few years in life. Besides, very few people are talented with the kind of musical hearing he had. I'm not one of them. :(
     
  17. Stevie Wonder is blind.

    That, and I can already play with my eyes closed. But I NEEEEEDDD to hear my girlfriend's voice. It would kill me to not hear her sing.

    Rock on

  18. If I where blind, i wouldnt be able to see chicks....

    but if i were deaf, chicks wouldnt want me anyways....

    and if i where deaf, i couldnt hear music....


    So i choose being blind over deaf. Not that i plan on being either.
     
  19. Definately want to be blind. No Music equals no Paul

    I would not bestow that fate on my worst enemy, well ok, maybe my worst enemy, but not someone that I just kinda don't like.

    However, if I were in the hot seat, I would have to go with blind. I can't see not being able to hear, loss of light, I can live with, heck, I can still touch and feel the skin on my girl, so I don't need to see her, but I would need to hear her moan so I know when I complete my task.
