If you had to wake up tomorrow either Blind or Deaf, which would you choose?

Think about it hard, then give your reasons.

Even though I couldn't enjoy music and mainly OLP I'd MUCH rather be deaf. I'm a photographer for gods sake. I'd be unemployed forever!

they have a great community. and there is so many devices to curve deafness. And trust me, deaf people listen to music still... only a whole lot LOUDER.

I've been thinking about this for a while, and I just can't choose.

My whole life revolves around music. Listening to it, talking to you guys on here about it (then again, I couldn't do that, could I?)... Plus, I can't imagine looking at my guitar all day and not being able to play it (I'd obviously just sell it :cry: )

I guess deaf would be the way to go for me too... But... :cry: No OLP? No guitar?!?

I would rather be blind.

Why, do you ask? Why would a chick so in love we her glasses rather be blind?

1) I am hopelessly dependant on Music. Day in and day out. I would be dead or killing myself without it.

2) Being blind never stopped a person from playing their favourite instrument.

3) You'd probably gain a greater sense of hearing/touch/etc. to compensate for your lack of sight.

4) There's a guy in the US that teaches blind people to Echolocate. I think that would be a l337 skill to have :mrgreen:

If I had to choose I'd rather be deaf .. communication is easier and I'm learning sign language anyway so that would be helpful :P

You can still relate to people easily enough in the ways that are truly important if you're blind, but can still hear.

yeah, if you're deaf you can't hear tones in voice and you have trouble speaking back.

trust me guys, deaf is the way to go. Music can still have an impact on you when you're deaf. You can still feel the vibrations. When you are blind, imagine all the beautiful images you're missing out on.

well at first i thought deaf cause not being able to see colors would drive me crazy, but then i thought that music is kind of audio color, and plus i dont think i'd be a very good french horn player if i was deaf (not that i'm all that good now). And as for the writing thing, there always is brail and brail computers and whatnot. <----- :lol: "whatnot"

Yeah, but you wouldn't know who (or what) you were getting in bed with. And you wouldn't know what sex they were... until it would be too late! :(

:lol:
"When looking up there, I just felt whole, like I belonged. Like one day I too would shine my most brilliant. Sitting there also made me think about sitting through services at my little country church back home. About that never-changing congregation of the same sixty-seven people and everyone has known you since before you were born. Now, out here in the real world, everything just seemed more vivid than when I used to sit in that little pew. That pew that was now so, so far away from where I was. I feared I had somehow left God behind there, too. I feared he was somehow just sitting there, saving my seat on the fifth pew from the front row, just waiting on me to come back. I left so quickly, I worried that he may not have noticed I was gone. And, now, I’m just too far away to find. So he’s just sitting there, patiently waiting on me to come back. I closed my eyes and prayed a moment. I hoped more than anything that he could still hear me." -an excerpt from my novella, A Sea of Fallen Leaves.
