hmm, let's think:
Sight: looking at cute girls
Hearing: music, and the voices of cute girls
Touch: well, touching cute girls :giggle:
Smell: the smell of female hair...
Taste: fast food

I guess that shows what I voted for =P

oh, and if someone says girls do taste good, too: you're right, but... well, the only downpart of... something... I like to do is enduring a certain taste =P

I can't smell, and I have a moderate to severe hearing loss, so this was already a hard enough decision. I think if I had perfect command of all my senses but had to give up one, I'd go with hearing. To be sure, it's a wonderful and rather useful sense, but I wouldn't be who I am now if I could hear like everyone else.

I voted taste. As far as I'm concerned, taste just gets in the way. I think the world would be better off if people couldn't taste. Imagine the reduction in obesity, as eating ceased to be an enjoyable activity, ending all gluttony.

Yea, some people eat out of habit, etc etc but I'm talking big picture.

Smell, cause...think of it:

Sight- You'd run into things, put on the wrong socks, mistake everyone for everyone else...
Taste- Wouldn't be able to taste your grandma's cookin :D
Hearing- No music
Touch- You could get cut/stabbed/shot and not even know it until you were bleeding to death o.O

Hearing without a doubt, I have a bad cold and my ears are all stuffed up and I can't hear a thing right now, and I realize how much I don't really miss it!

I would never lose sight or sound... they're each too valuable. Taste and smell go hand in hand, and I wouldn't like to lose them either. Touch is fine with me to lose.

Lets see... I like to draw too much not to see... if I lost smell stuff wouldn't taste right (two for the price of one)... and I looove to listen to music...

taste goes kaputski :D I tend to ignore what stuff tastes like anyway, and this way I could eat really gross stuff just for the heck of it.

smell, even though that would effect taste a good bit, I don't mind too terribly much though.

Id have to go with smell, Sure, Id miss things like fresh cookies, flowers, and chinese food, and loss of smell would slightly alter your taste, but I couldnt stand the thought of losing anything else.

I could easily abandon sight. As much as I adore a beautiful skyscape or the look on someone's face when you've made their day, there are just so many things in the world I'd much rather not look at.

I couldn't live without sound, my ears are precious and too perfect to not use. As long as I could touch and smell the one I love, I'd be surely happy!

I'm surprised at the amount of people who voted for smell, I certainly favour it over the other senses.

I voted hearing, because I hate having to listen to people. When you can just close your eyes and they don't exist, its the most beautiful feeling in the world.

interesting poll... Hmm, I voted for smell, but it was a close call between that and taste.

Besides, I'd rather actually kill myself than lose my sight - no more art, reading, writing, INTERNET, GAMES!!! Argh! Would drive me insane!

i wanted to vote smell, but i figured that is not the right option
i didnt want to vote taste, becouse i love good food and stuff

but fact is, 80% of the stuff you taste, is what you smell (get it?)
so.. if you loose your smell, you cant taste AND smell
but if you loose your taste, you can still taste about 80% ... :hmm:

My nose is blocked half the time anyway, so doing without smell wouldn't be a huge leap, although, if you lose your sense of smell completely, you also lose quite a bit of yoru sense of taste.

Yup yup, smell as I thught. I think it's the sense that we all find most useless. Imagine to wake up and can't smell your girlfriend... all the parfumes and all the different smells of nature... food... I guess smell also is a really important one. But I would take that away cuz I coulden live without sight, hearing, touch and taste.

u should have put in a final option like to cut your leg(s) off instead or something. Would be cool to c the comments.

I suppose the one that would have the least impact is smell... so I vote smell.

However, smell is my strongest sense, so I'd hate to lose that. Besides, losing smell would greatly decrease taste as well.

My most important senses in order:

#1: Sight: We live in a beautiful world. I love messing with images, capturing images, making images.

#2: Hearing: i couldn't live without musci, and the sound of certain peoples voices.

#3: Touch: The warmth of another body, the security of having someone hold you.

#4: Smell: It can be horrible or amazing, but smell really defines certain people, brings back memories, triggers emotions.

#5: Well, sure i like my food, and i liek the taste of my girlfriends mouth, but thats it really.
