Arrow The least worst sense to lose

Let's say someone would come to you, and force you with a gun to give up on one of the following:
Hearing
Eyesight
Speach


Which one would you choose?



edit: oops, in the poll I meant Deaf
edit 2: and also least

Crap, in the confusion I chose "blind", as it would be the worst sense to lose but the poll was the opposite etc.

Anyway, I agree with "Mute". I'd have a Steven Hawking device installed or something

I've chosen blind. Being mute still doesn't prevent you from writing. You'd ever know what consequences it'd be if you're blind.

I agree with mute too because, if I couldn't see I don't have a clue what I'd do, and if I was deaf I wouldn't have my music

My life concentrates on 2 main things: computers and music. For that you need eyesight and hearing.

On the other hand, I hardly talk at all.

So, for me, the answer is quite obvious.

mute easily.
its the easiest to replace.

Artificial eyes though, are still at 32*32 resolution or something horrible.
And i dont think we have any artificial ears yet!
(lots of enhancers, but no replacements)

Mute, of course. I'd write what I wanted to say on a notepad, or, as previously stated, a Stephen Hawking-style voice synthesiser. And draw pictures. :>

lol, I chose deaf. But now that I think of it, you cant listen to music if youre deaf and you cant listen to sports commentary. But I dont know, fuck, I dont wanna be any of them.

Mute.
With hearing and sight you can still chat, game, watch movies, know what's going on far more easily.
Mute is only a problem when communicating and if you just got a notebook or an artificial voice thing it's pretty wel solved I think. especially compared to deafness and blindness.

While my voice is critical to wooing the ladies, I agree, you're eyes are one of your most precious assets. And the same for ears.

I would rather find some other way to communicate as opposed to not being able to hear or see.

Unless I could get some sweet Daredevil-esque powers

Why? because talking isn't a sense?
true, it isn't, but you know what morshem meant, so it doesn't matter.

Also, if i became deaf now i'd still be able to speak.

Yeah.. serious... what? o.O

Anyways... I'd choose being Mute, as I listen to music a lot, and I play an instrument... (not sure if I could do that being mute, but whatever...) and there's no way I could live without reading or gaming.

Why would anyone choose to loose their hearing rather than their voice?

Not quite, its hard for them to speak, but some do learn....its not impossible for the determained.
They are taught by having people move their mouths for them, so they slowly learn the shapes of the phonemes.
