If you had to lose one sense, what would it be? i will say smell.

Probably smell. That seems to be the sense I use the least.

i voted smell, but i'm not that sure, seeing as how most of the finer nuances of taste are actually made out by smell. Still, i kinda like most of the others.

Either taste or smell. If I couldn't taste I could eat pretty much anything and most things that are good for me don't taste great so...

As for smell, eh, I don't really need it.

Went with taste, since if you have no smell you're going to lose a majority of taste too, so why lose 2 senses when you can go with one?
I honestly think that smell/taste are the real only sense you can lose without having any significant impact on your life.

Definitely smell. I have a really good sense of smell and it sucks all the time cause my roommate has a dog. Fucking dog.

yeah I'm going with smell too, seems the least necessary to day to day life.

Touch...

What the hell does it do except pain-wise?
EDIT:Woah 12 quotes, most of them about sexual pleasure! Well that's a new milestone for that.

Smell because...

Touch: Not feeling anything would suck...A LOT
Seeing: Being blind isnt very cool
Deaf: Not hearing anything would actually drive me insane
Taste: Cant actually be useful, drinking off milk comes to mind.
Smell: Unless you really depend on it for some reason, then this seems the least useful in the modern urban environment

Smell definately, as it also kills taste almost completely.

Would mean I could drink water instead of sugary drinks, and eat stuff like salads without wanting to throw up.

Smell. Most useless goddamn sense. Most smells are bad anyway.
I can take a blow to taste because seriously smelling things is awful.

I'm going to pick one not on the list and go with humor.

Wait. I revoke my vote. I go with common.

Nouw:
Touch...

What the hell does it do except pain-wise?

Well it also helps to know when parts of your body have collided with things, whether or not painful. Tying your shoes would become hard I imagine.

Imagine all of your body being numb but without pins and needles.

Good point, I take smell! I know that it would remove a great deal of taste but still >.>

Well, eating is more of a chore for me so I guess I'll go with taste.

I'd say smell, taste, or touch

Smell: my nose is perma-clogged, don't got much of that sense anyways
Taste: Eh, so I can't taste what I'm eating anymore. Well, hey, no more gag reflex and I can finally eat those damn veggies
Touch: Without the sense of touch, there is no sense of pain, now is there? Perk in it's own right, but at the same time very detrimental

Touch. No touchy means no pain. I'd be like a super hero.

Barring that, smell. Smell is way over-rated. It's only really useful function is making food taste better.

Taste. I actually only like a very select group of food so not tasting anything would open me up to new food possibility and make life easier. Actually that was really easy... almost too easy.

I see you didn't even bother to add "sight" as an option.

I voted smell, my sight is my most precious sense.

Smell. I didn't even have a real sense of smell for a long time, so... yeah.

Pain.

I could easily get used to being careful. And touch so much more useful.

Taste. Sense of smell is much more important than tasting.

Taste, then I would be able to eat healthily.

I'd have to go with Smision. I hardly ever use that one anyway. Second choice would be my sense of fair play. That's always getting in the way.

You guys realise no touch = no pleasure right?

If I had to choose one sense to lose, I think I'd go with the common one. People seem to get by okay without it most of the time.

I voted hearing because I have always dream of absolute silence and believe it could bring true peace to this otherwise chaotic world and let me think straight for once.
I wouldn't want to get rid of smell, why? Because when I made out with my first girl friend the thing I found the most attractive was the smell... is that wrong? hormones prolly but something was just lovely about it and my sense of smell has been pretty good at guiding me towards whats bad and whats good... If I lost my sense of touch I would become WAY to detached from the world and could probably never work up the effort to get of bed. If I lost my sight I couldn't play video games, card games, or read books which are my three favorite past times, if I lost my taste... I would probably lose allot of weight actually and save a nice amount of money cuz then I could just get plain oat meal for most of my meals... I would still get rid of hearing though.

Nouw:
Touch...

What the hell does it do except pain-wise?

Without touch, you can't feel your penis/vagina, therefore no orgasms. (I think, anyway)

I'd have to go with taste. While I love tasting things (Chocolate cake, pepsi/coke, cookies, etc) I could go without it. Taste is the least significant for me.

Sense of Style,

its pretty useless to me

Taste. It's keeping me from eating healthy as I don't like the flavor of most healthy foods. Especially fruits and vegetables.

my fashion sense.

I mean it's practically non existent anyhow

Sadly, I'd have to pick taste. Unless someone is specifically trying to murder me, I'm not about to ingest any poisons that I need to detect with taste, but smell? Gas leaks are not so uncommon that you want to be unable to detect them until you throw up- there's a reason they add scent to otherwise odourless gases.

The others are totally essential. We define most everything in day to day life in visual terms, and touch lets you know when you have applied your hand to a super strong, concentrated acid.

Hearing lets me listen to music and tell certain people to fuck off and let me buy 1$ headphones to listen to youtube soundfiles, I can barely distinguish between audio qualities anyway. And what does it matter to you, anyway? Exactly, go back to your 10000$ sound system.

Sorry, what was the question?

In an aside, Captcha asked me to type the symbol for "Beta". I do not have that key on my keyboard, should I? I mean, you only need to get one word right, but still.

Fashion sense.

Smell, mine's pretty bad anyway.
