I wanked the searchbar. Nothing came up.

I, personally, would rather be blind, because I plan on making a living with music, and if I went deaf my future would be screwed up quite badly. Just curious as to what the pit thinks about this.

bleaf, where you cannot see sound
grok it.

SKREAM!

Listen to jazz, it's good for you...

Blind, so I can still hear music.

Besides, I can still read the Pit. Microsoft Sam would have to doit, though.

As much as I would miss listening to music...I would miss the hot chicks more.

I choose "smell blind" my sense of smell doesn't matter as much.

I'm partially deaf anyway. Listening to my ipod at full volume doesn't help either but I can't help it I need to hear it. But I'd chose to be blind.

Yet Beethoven was deaf......
Please Stay,
Until I'm Gone,
I'm Here Hold On,
To Me I'm Right Here,
Waiting,
And Take My One Last Breath,
And Dont Forget,
That I Will Be Right Here,

Beethoven was deaf when he wrote the Ninth Symphony.

EDIT: Fuck I'm stupid

I would just crank the bass on my amp, and still feel the music

plus I wouldn't have to deal with everyone bitching at me.

Depends, many of my current hobbies would be limited if I was deaf.

Foreign Languages- I would have to give up my goals of becoming a well rounded language translator and would be limited to written translation only, which is easier actually.
Music- I would more or less have to give this up completely.
Weightlifting/Bodybuilding- Almost no effect, I would still be able to do this to full ability
Martial Arts- Little effect, outside hearing instructions

If I was blind

-I would have to give up reading and learning more or less, therefore I wouldn't be able to learn foreign languages from instructional book material.
-I might be able to participate in weightlifting/bodybuilding however I would have idea what I looked like, which is 95% of the motivation for this.
-Martial arts is impossible being blind
-Music would be nice to listen to, but I would probably give up playing it because I couldn't see frets/keys/etc.

Therefore I would much rather be deaf.

Being blind and a guitarist automatically means:

A. Instant fame
and
B. Really cool nickname

Agreed. I could learn to read lip too. Not that I could fully make out what people say every time, but it's at least something.

Ah but you see if you were blind you could touch said hot chicks because one of the main ways you get to recognize people outside of voice is by their physical characteristics that you feel. So pretty much you can touch hot chicks all the time and no one will say a thing about it. That is pretty win too =D

To me, touching for the rest of my life would be worse than seeing even if I was a virgin for the rest of my life. It would just kind of kill the sensation imo.

Blind, I could still play guitar, if I ran into a chick and copped a feel....I'm blind. "Oops."

Well, you wouldn't really know they're hot until you've felt them. So for every hot chick you'll grope there will probably be one or more acne-headed, food engorged monstrosities.

Not necessarily. If you were to try playing a guitar blindfolded, I think you'd be surprised by how well you could navigate just based on feel. With a bit of practice, you could play any instrument without looking. I've trained myself to play the piano upside-down and hands-crossed, Amadeus-style.

I think humanity might be a little better off if we were all blind. Shallowness would certainly take quite a hit. Not to say that humans won't still find stupid things about each other to complain about, of course...

I'd probably choose blindness over deafness for a number of musical and non-musical reasons. I knew there would be a bunch of "Music is my life, etc." responses when I saw the thread title...

Same with me, but I didn't feel like going in depth as I was the thread starter. It was honestly a tough choice for me, but blindness won out (that sounds really weird)

That was quite the philosophical post, by the way.

i'll add to the bunch I need to hear music!!
To say of what is that it is not, or of what is not that it is, is false, while to say of what is that it is, and of what is not that it is not, is true.

Why, thank you, my good man. I was concerned, as I often am, that my post was too long-winded for the thread.

EDIT: ^ By all means. I'd be lying if I said that music didn't play a huge factor in my hypothetical choice.
