This has probably been done before, but I've been thinking about it a lot lately.
If you were forced to choose between being completely blind (completely, absolutely no sight) or completely deaf, which would you choose?

If you are deaf from birth, then you are also dumb (Can't talk).

So by the options I assume you mean suddenly becoming one.

I'm not sure, it you would be completely helpless if you were blind (in the real world you aren't daredevil), but deaf would mean no music, and weird talking.

If I had to choose, I would say deaf, because sight is just more useful.

I choose blind. I wouldn't want to give up my precious musickz. And seeing by sense of touch is very pleasing if you catch my drift.

And all those "Deaf World" specials in ASL class kind of turned me off. I never knew deaf people were so damn whiny.

Blindness means no animashun, no books, no tv, no nothing.
And I don't like not being able to see.

Deaf. Because you can fix your ears but you can't replace your eyes. There is some kind of technology which can support your hearing or something. Anyways I would like to see when crossing roads, lol.

Blind.

Would probably be safer for me anyway, I play far too much video games D:
Would also get me out of doing extremely long essays to do as well.
Like Spazz said earlier, I wouldn't like to miss out on my music either, and having a heightened sense of touch/hearing does sound pleasing.

Well the talking is optional anyway. Sign Language, yo.

You think I don't know what deaf people sound like? Yes I would like that.

You only lose hearing, speaking, telephoning, and some other less useful stuff than sight. I'd much rather have sight.

Well not really. There is no cure for deafness. There are hearing aids, but those only work if you're hard of hearing, not deaf. And there is a thing called a Cochlear Implant. It's this thing where they drill a hole through your head and stick a bunch of wires and a magnet inside and directly transmits sound to your brain via a microphone. Unfortunately, it's still experimental. It only works on a few channels so the hearing is all garbled. And if there's ever an upgrade in their technology, you can't upgrade your implant. It's permanent. So really, once you go deaf, you'll never truly be able to hear again. Which means you'll still sound like a retard when you talk.

And deaf people are to proud of who they are to want to be able to hear. They hate it when people view their condition as a disability (although I kind of thought that, by definition, to not have access to one of your key senses or bodily functions would mean you're disabled). They went in a riot just because they didn't have a deaf president for some college.

wait, so can you actually get an eye transplant? like you can use someone elses eyes to see?
Well I saw a show on discovery channel or some shit where this guy wsa blind, or at least very near it, and they put like a whole bunch of wires and hit into his head and he could see. It wasn't perfect sight and he couldn't see either colors, or some specific colors, but he could see.

I only remembered Spazz's comment D:

Besides, I remember recalling that a bunch of scientists are working on a cure for blindness. What they cooked up was to have a camera, strapped to your head, hooked up to a sensor which was to be placed onto your tongue. The feed from the camera was sent to the sensor on your tongue, which then sent electrical impulses and then your brain was to interpret that as image I think. It's still in preliminary stages, but so far it's working. Can't remember what it was called though ._.

Actually, I think there's also this thing called a cataract replacement where they take out the fogged up clear thing in your eye and replace it with a good one so you can see again. I saw a special in some social studies class where they did it over in Korea and it worked. But instead of thanking the doctors, they thanked Kim Jong-Il.

Nah deaf obviously.

I mean music and talking is awesome and all, it sucks not being able to hear that. But seeing means ALOT. You see the world, you see your family, if you ever love someone, you can actually see them not hear them. People can steal money from you, can mislead you etc. They can bassicly do everything to you.

but when you can see, you can at least see what there doing, although it would be harder since your deaf.

but seeing is everything. Although a world full of silence don't get me wrong, is still very very lonely lol and suckish.

but deaf. although I hate chosing because I just hate it lol.

Wow awfull attempt at being funny. Its not funny because

- Being blind isn't a joke
- it makes no sense? if your blind that doesn't mean you can't locate the V hole and insert it =|
- because you said it.

And yea a lot of people make jokes but still i'm just saying wtf lol

So you've resorted to 3 people I don't know, and I've been around these forums a lot, one person who you don't even know likes you, and others who are likely just moderate on the subject. Out of this shoddy list you've created, I'm sure I can compile a list of many more who despise you, disrespect you, or think you're an absolute dumbass.

Leave you alone? Where have I heard this? When I said so when you were just restating a point 3 posts already made with just face-up-to-the-screen counting out of a tiny, tiny, tiny counting error, in which the number wasn't the point at all on a joke, yet? Leave ME alone, and leave this community alone, and leave!

Don't kid yourself when thinking more people like than hate you, because I'm sure it's quite the opposite. I remember when I had keen respect for you. You were fine, and an aspiring animator willing to get better, who I was willing to try to help out. Then I make a jocular comment, and decided to fill my inbox with PMs complaining and whining over a ****ing joke, which I even said was a joke!! You even resorted at the end to say Shut Up like a disrespectful teenager who lost an argument, and think you are then above the argument.

You sir, I must say, are a ****ing prick. You will never stop being a prick, and your personality has no where to go but up in any level. I hate you, and the children in your gonads that will be spilled into your boyfriend's colon one day.
