If you had to give up one of your five senses, which could you live without?
Uh, I believe that'd be ... fuck I don't know. Let's weigh out the possibilities.
_____________________________

Touch
   I don't think I'd want to live without this, cause then I wouldn't be able to feel anything. I might be internally bleeding and not know it... so this one's a definite keeper, just because of the whole life or death aspect.

Sound
   No. Never. I'd never give up my hearing for anything, I need music to live. Period.

Sight
   I highly doubt I'd give this bad boy up. I mean, I can barely stand up with my eyes closed, let alone walk. I don't know how I'd live without sight. Although, I have always wanted a reason to learn braile...

Smell
   Possibly. Smell's kinda whatever. No smell = no farts, no burps, no garbage, no nasty smells. However, this also means no roses, no prettyful colognes, no axe... Actually, I pretty much live my life without smell as it is, when my nose is clogged from those wonderful allergies. I might not be so different without it.

Taste
   Would I be able to live without taste? Taste is reflective of smell, correct? I mean, you can smell something so much that you can almost taste it, right? If that's true, would I be able to taste chicken by smelling it...? Hm, I'm not sure, but this one's a definite maybe for the give up pile. Also, there's no real threat to my life if I don't have it, except the possible tasting of poison... but who would want to poison me?

Okay, so we're down to smell and taste. Plain and simple, I think I'd choose taste, because then I probably wouldn't be addicted to food as much as I am, meaning I would never be fat. Also, the other four are pretty awesome, except smell on occasion. Yeah, I'd definitely choose to live without taste.

What would you choose?
