aw dang man

definitely not sight or hearing for obvious reasons... probably not touch either... because yeah :XD:

so there's only taste&smell left. gosh dang there's both upsides and downsides to it

like, i'm really picky in the case of some foods (meat particularly... i don't like most meat) so having no sense of taste would be kinda nice :shrug: but then again the downside would be not tasting fabulous-tasting foods :crying:

and i don't mind the downsides of smelling most of the times... at least you could detect whether or not your clothes smell icky (or of [domesticated animal] pee) without bothering anyone else x'D (one of my bros has anosmia so he has to ask someone when he wants to know whether his clothes/socks smell normal) and the upside's also the fact that there's lots of pleasant smells :dummy:

conclusion: can't i have a manipulatable sense of taste and smell????!?! that would be the best

I'm still hesitating between hearing and taste/smell :')

idiot :stare: ok yeah, i wouldn't want to give up touch either because oh man the texture/feel of some things

...

i once shoved my hand into a bigger-metal-can-thing of flour and just played around with it a bit. not enough to flour-ize anything besides my hand though. :XD:

Taste and smell I'd say, because..well..I dunno, really. I don't know how not having no sense of touch would feel like. would it be, like, being numb? if so, then i'd rather have no taste and smell.

I'd say touch. Eating, seeing and listening play a big part in my life, touch only became the matter of choice by default :shrug:

I think I'd have to say touch, because taste-smell can be really important because maybe you could accidentially be eating poisoned food or food that's gone bad? It's really hard to think about these are all so important XD

Touch I guess cause if I couldn't see I wouldn't be able to draw like I do, and if I couldn't hear I couldn't listen to music and stuff and then if I couldn't taste........ COOKIES.

Or if I really have to, taste and smell. Even if I use the second one a lot, my life is only music, and drawing.
And I need touch because I always try to touch everyone and everything around me XD

Touch. Even though I wouldn't be able to feel anything, i'd much rather be able to see, hear, smell, and taste.

Vision is essential for creation outside of the mind as well as protecting yourself from possible danger (after all it's good to see them coming if you can).

I use my ears quite often to depict sounds out of a bunch...to me it is fun. Also, without hearing, you probably wouldn't last very long in the open world.

Now even though scent can be a bad thing at times, I enjoy and would miss the smells of new rain, or the oak trees in the summer. I wouldn't be able to live without it.

The ability to taste I believe is very important. It provides small moments to enjoy yourself. If something tastes bad, you won't continue eating it. Which might end up saving you from a serious stomach ache later on. :shrug:

Yea. I guess any sense is pretty essential, but nowadays it's possible to survive without one of them. Hard, but possible.

I know what you mean, but it won't automatically make you see better. x) It will only make you more focused on your other senses but it won't magically improve your eyesight.

i'm going with the popular option here- taste and smell. the others are too crucial, while these two only affect my eating habits. i'm wayy too much of a pussy to get rid of something else.

very hard one, I go for touch. Because without sight I can't make any drawings and see my amazing girlfriend, without hearing I can't hear beautiful music and voices and without taste & smell I might get poisoned and I can't taste or smell delicious foods. But a life without the ability to feel things... still not that great :noes:

No indeed, you could easily hurt yourself and not even notice until it's too late :noes: Lacking any sense is hard.
