Which would it be and why?

Mine would be taste. I don't really get that much enjoyment out of food (I see it more as something I have to do; something to keep me going) and could eat purely-healthy food!

Anyway, how about you?

Smell, I enjoy food way too much to give up taste.


Smell is a really big part of taste.

But I think my sense of temperature would be the sense I could go without.

Smell, my nose is plugged from allergies anyways so I don't smell anything to begin with.

pretty sure you'll enjoy food a lot less without your olfactory senses.

still, i picked smelling too because it's just the least worrying.

Smell. I'd still be able to taste to a degree.

This is true. But if it was like just giving up the smelling and not the tasting, without a doubt.

Besides, not like I can smell anything half the time anyway

Taste. Because I could smell if my food is bad even if I can't taste it. The other way around isn't practical.

I would have gone with smell except i love the smell of rain soaked sand way too much. So, as with the TS, it will have to be taste as i do not especially enjoy eating food as most people do.

Taste, so that it wouldn't matter what the **** I ate. It would make eating healthier a hell of a lot easier.

Yeah wtf TS?


Ok I guess I could go without my sense of smell. Cause if I can't smell the flowers, I'll just lick them

Oh, and lack of "The Sixth Sense" joke option annoys and infuriates me.

some 1 beat me to it...... kinda

taste because I'm a coward and the other senses can tell me if there is danger better.

The first three are not even considerable. But between Smell and Taste I'm going to have to go with Taste;
The smell of coffee for example. Every time I smell coffee my only desire is to taste it. And you can easily avoid bad tastes however when someone farts in the elevator with you in it you can only rage to make the time pass quicker.

don't believe everything you hear in kindergarden! we have far more than 5 senses.

I would say my sense of direction, but then I'd be no better than our female couterparts.

Edit: Actually, I'd still have one up on them. I can open jars

Taste. Losing the ability to sense sweet, sour, salty, or bitter when eating would be much less drastic than losing the ability to sense flavour which is due to the aroma of the food and thus falls under the sense of smell.

In addition, smell has profound psychological effects at the subconscious level. It picks up on pheromones and affects your physiology and state of mind (if you find yourself unusually attracted to a certain girl, more so than you normally would be, then she might be ovulating and giving off some sexy pheromones). The sense of smell is the strongest stimulator of emotion and memory out all the senses.

Smell. We've pretty much evolved to the point where our sense of smell is worthless anyway.

I'd go for smell..simply because it's probably the least bad to go without.
Never imagine yourself not to be otherwise than what it might appear to others that what you were or might have been was not otherwise than what you had been would have appeared to them to be otherwise

what do you mean? don't we still need it for appetite and other recreational needs? i mean, hearing can also be seen as useless if do take into account the amount of deaf-aid things there are out there. the only thing keeping us wanting it are personal recreational needs like music. doesn't mean they're worthless.

(don't take that analogy too seriously)

Pretty much worthless. It's not essential to our survival like it would be to a wolf or a mole-rat.

Smell. It's half gone already, I did some damage to my nose back in school.

Accidentally inhaled a ridiculous amount of ammonia, by sticking my head over a beaker of crystals of it and sniffing it to see what is was... Burnt like a bitch and I haven't been able to smell a lot since then.

I don't mind too much, but it is a bit dangerous sometimes. A housemate accidentally left our gas oven on and I couldn't smell it. Got to bad he could smell gas the second he walked through the living room!

I was gonna go with smell, but I chose taste.

Without taste, i'd be able to eat the stuff I don't normally like and i'd end up being healthier. For example, I dont like tomato. But if I didn't have taste, I'd eat tomato.

Since the taste you experience has a lot to do with smell too, I'd loose taste. Might still be able to enjoy some food.

I'd loose pain, because it's one I don't take pleasure in.
