If there was ever a choice where you are forced to lose one of your five senses (sight, hearing, taste, touch, smell) what would you choose and why. For me I would lose taste because everthing else is too important and I would be able to eat anything edible *nothing poisonous, duh* despite the horrible taste.

Nicely explained JamieMadrox, I guess taste is even more important to some.

Huh, that's sorta strange since in some cases smell could really save your life. For instance you might not see a wildfire but you know its there from smell and it could also warn you about gas leaks too (utter chaos if someone lights a match, no?)

for me, its also a fight between taste and smell... taste is good because if i didn't have it, i'd miss the taste of candy and sweet stuff way too much.... but then if i didn't have smell, i'd miss the scent of flowers during springtime.... :\

but wouldn't it hurt even more (emotionally) if you couldn't feel the warmth of when someone was trying to give u a comforting hug or even a kiss?

You would hear burning. Not to mention, forest fires typically have masses of smoke coming out, so you can look in the air and see it. Gas leaks would be a problem, but it's would be just like carbon monoxide, you can tell. However, turning on the lights would do the trick. Boom. XD

You don't realize it, but pain is an evolutionary trait, with good reason. Imagine you couldn't feel your finger singing. Well, eventually, your fingers would burn or the blood in your finger would start to boil. Very unhealthy. No to mention you wouldn't be able to tell if someone stabbed you, or hugged you.

I would have to be rid of taste. Getting rid of smell to keep taste is pratically useless since you get a lot of your taste from the smell of your food (that's why if your smelling fresh baked cookies or something it's like you can "almost taste them"). Taste isn't really a needed skill. Just an added perk.

I guess I would lose the sight! Cause it isn't that important as the others!
Of course all senses are indispendables but sight Is the one I would better live without cause although I couldn't see the sun and the beaty out there, I could feel it and touch, stuff like that!!
Each person prefers one or other but once you loose one maybe you couldn't live like that!!
I think I would probably go crazy if I were to lose any of them!

free yourself from hate
and don't die all alone
else one day you'll break
and you won't stop till the last bone!

Sight? Bah, that's actually one of the most useful senses. Without it, you can't drive cars, and you can't go to unknown places without an assistant. You would also never be able to see the one you love.

As far as I see I think there isn't isn't really any senses that are completely useless and now that I thought about it you gotta admire Helen Keller surviving through life without both sight and sound and everyone else who lacks one of theses senses out there.....

This is really a question to see what people consider the least important sense. A lot of people don't realize what they'd miss, including myself. To be honest, taste is probably one of the least important, but it useful in testing for hidden dangers in food.

Hmmmm good point I guess sacrificing a sense might be a bit too extreme and taste is also a major factor in health. Some foods you just can't tell if they've gone rancid by sight alone so taste is kinda like a second safety measure...

All senses are evolutionary traits, and thus there are reasons for them. Like smell. A cow's fart can literally kill you.

Maybe the hearing....'cos i would like to see more of the world (IMPORTANT:how could i read, and see anime, and...?? XD ), to taste (candies, french fries, chocolates,.... how could i live without this?!? XD ), touch (the person's face, my Suicida - dog, to drawing and writing is very useful,....), and i can't taste without the smell sense and the opposite (at least, when i'm sick, this happens...)....love to hear music also but there's too much stuff i hate hearing like discussions, bad words,.........

Ok, this is a sense? the speech.......

Well smell isn't really that important, well not to me anyways >_<

a more interesting question for me would be which one of the five senses you would like to keep while giving away the other 4 8P

I'd keep sight. Definitely my personal, most vital sense. I could still do many of the things I do today, just a little less graceful. Without touch, I'd have no clue if I pulled off a movement right, so I'd be pretty clumsy. You can still do a lot with sight, and since you're not mute, all you need for others to communicate with you is for them to write down what they want to say.
