Senses Poll

If for some reason you had to lose one of your five senses in order to survive, which sense would you be willing to give up. Why?

I would be willing to give up taste.

Why, because if I couldn't taste the food, it would help me be able to eat healthier. Food that I can't stand the taste of, (for example Grapefruit) would be manageable. However, I wouldn't be able to taste if something isn't right though. Spoiled milk, rotten or burnt food are examples. However, I would still be able to smell, so that would greatly help out.

Hands down, it would have to be smell, least important of the rest. I would miss smelling the flowers in Spring, Christmas trees & my birdies but I could live without.

we would give up hearing.. so we wouldn't have to hear the anger tones in peoples voices or when they we're being rude.. mean or just plain cruel.. we wouldn't hear the screams when people yell at others..
