Sight?
Hearing?
Touch?
Smell?
Taste?

I would keep my sense of hearing. Poll coming...

Edit: I figure most will say hearing..

Hearing duh.
Soon you will sit on the bench
of those who deny I have my soul
You sell a dream you create
Condemned by what you condemned before
Smooth are the words you sing down and high
Underground is your joy your laws

Taste

All I do is eat anyway

Hearing. It's the only sense you could still fully enjoy.

Sight - you have no sense of touch, you are probably paralysed, someone can point you at a tv, but thats about it.
Hearing - you can still listen to music, stand up comedy, friends and family talking to you etc.
Touch - not much good if you cant see or hear where you're going.
Smell - just sitting around smelling things all day?
Taste - ^ same

hearing,


i could get a walking stick if i was blind lol
taste- just eat whatever
smell- it would be a lot more pleasant in a public restroom
touch- i dont really get that but i guess i would just be numb everywhere??? lol

touch. Helen Keller seemed to do alright without sight and hearing. Until she became a communist.

I would think hearing. There's no point to sight if you can't do anything else really.

Logically: touch. To lose function of sensory nerves could lead to severe injuries, and frankly, I'm not willing to be that careful.

However, I cannot answer this question honestly. I'm a believer that the sensations we get from our senses, especially touch and hearing, when we focus our energy and concentration to these sensations, it's like being with God. As hokey as that sounds and as much as I truly don't believe in God in any conventional sort of rationale, it's pretty bold of me to say that. I love my senses and I could never willingly give up any of them.

Touch and hearing are most important. If I lost either hearing, touch or vision I would probably give up on life.

Okay advantages of having sight:

You could see people
You could play games
You could play sports
you could walk to places
You could have a job
You could juggle, play cards ect.

Try closing your eyes for 2 minutes, you realize how dependant you are on eyesight and everything is so scary and meaningless without it. Being blind would spiral me into servre depression.

You wouldn't hyperthetically give you senses up?

edit... oops sorry about the double post.

You could get by with sight...but if you kept hearing and a silent assassin violently stabbed you in the chest, you'd never know because of the whole no touch thing also.

One time I had this chick setting on my lap, sucking on my neck, unbuttoning my pants when one of my friends walked in and ruined the whole thing. To be fair though, she was his girlfriend.

Well you can, you just wouldn't be able to feel anything, there are some advantages though; You can't feel pain.
#28
im gonna have to say sight, just because the world has a lot of beauty (and boobs) to behold. i mean, you dont technically need hearing to play/understand music, as long as you know your theory.

so learn your theory n00bs.

hearing
all you need is to hear and your mind can do the rest

If you lose your sense of touch, you'd more than likely die shortly after.

I can't believe people would rather be blind than deaf. No question for me as much as I like music.

Also there would be no internet if you were blind.

agreed.

again, i argue that plenty of deaf people have enjoyed music. one of the major classical composers (i wanna say mozart but i dont think it was) was deaf through thier latter career. i still think i would retain vision.

EDIT: oops, i thought you were arguing for the other side.


fixed.

Exactly nobody would keep their smell


I said hearing, because I probably literally couldn't live without music.
I could deal without sight, smell, or taste, but likely not touch.

I'd keep hearing because I can't stand there not being any sound
