    It's tough, but being into music, I would choose to keep my hearing over my sight.

  8. Hard to decide, I think I'd go crazy without sight or hearing, but then again I really don't know how long you could survive without any sense of touch at all.

    Hearing I guess - 'cos then you can still interact with people, hold a conversation and not be alone in the world!


    I'd just have to trust friends to tell me in my clothes looked iffy or if I smelled bad!!!
     
  11. That feeling you get when you sneeze or Orgasm..... :rolleyes:

    :D:D

  12. Sneeze, orgasm, same thing right?
     
  13. Sight, although life would be hard to imagine without touch. I mean, an orgasm would feel exactly the same as being stabbed in the back. Knowing when you're being stabbed or something could be very useful to know.
    Anyways losing hearing would suck, and I see smell and taste as more of a burden than anything. I can think of more bad smells than good smells, and a food's nutritional value seems to be inversely related to it's taste.

    Touch.

    As bad as it would be to not be able to hear music, I wouldnot live without being able to feel it.

    I feel the bass more than I hear it, thats why I love Eden and 15's.

    Im also big on human contact.

    High fives, hugs, handshakes, and other things.


    Sight and smell are not such a big deal, though taste is. I mighht be skinny but I love to eat.

    Peace
    Nick
