lol, sight...seems like some peoples' desire for manga is so great they wouldn't mind losing their vision.....I chose smell personally, when I get a blocked nose, I usually can't smell anything anyway laugh though smell does affect taste, hmmm.....

All of the 5 senses are important. Really, the idea of having to lose one of them gives me goose bumps(LOL). I'm too afraid to even vote for this pole. I lost the hearing ability of my left ear due to middle ear infection, and it has caused a lot troubles to my life. People should treasure their senses more.
Please ignore my blabbering above, because in the end I still choose Taste(ROFL). Don't know why though biggrin. Somehow it sounds quite useless to me. roll eyes

This was too hard. I'd rather not give up any at all none But I chose smell. As long as it's not a stuffy nose, since I like to breathe through my nose.

Sight? Never!!! Would miss SOOOOO much

Hearing? Never would get hit a lot... Hey dude be careful with that CAR!!!

Touch? Like FUCK, I love to feel the air in my skin and would render sex useless and unfun...

Smell? is important to smell things, can actually save you from eating poison or something

Taste? Pretty much like Smell..

If I had to pick, I would go with either Smell or Taste... but I don't want to lose neither of them

Seems like a majority of people wouldn't mind losing this.

Hey, I won't have to smell the kid's smelly feet, who sits in front of me in class.

To be honest, I don't want to lose any of the senses.

Why? because all of those are essential for me.

I read so much mangas, I'm too lazy to watch anime! bigrazz bigrazz bigrazz

Well, losing your sense of smell will also make you lose your sense of taste the vast majority of the time..

But I'll ignore that, and chose to lose smell anyways. laugh

I chose "sight", but I couldn't quite decide between sight and touch. I mean, I heard that blind people manage quite ok, but have you ever had your legs go dead? I really hate that! Or waking up and having no feeling in my arm. That's scary. Also you wouldn't notice if you've hurt yourself. So I think "sight" was the right decision.

About the other three: I love eating! So don't you dare take my taste away! mad It's the same with smelling. I wouldn't have thought that so many people chose "smell". Smelling is very essential for me. For example the smell of good food when you're reeeaaallyyy hungry. ^^ The smell of rain, too ...

And hearing! That'd be the worst. I had blocked ears once. It was sooo bad! Drove me crazy ...

So I think it's "sight" after all. none I agree, though, that it'd be bad not to read manga anymore.

For most of the people picking smell, you do realize that smell is also the majority of taste, right? Taste itself is just sweet/bitter/sour/salty. Everything else you get when you eat something is actually your nose smelling the food.

Gack! Trying to decide an answer for this poll really made me realize how much we ought to treasure our senses, hahaa! I really, really, really didn't want to choose anything... but that's the whole point of the poll, isn't it? I ended up choosing the sense of touch, because I simply couldn't bear the thought of parting with the other senses, lol. Sight and hearing seemed out of the question for me, as we depend upon them so much in our daily life. That left the last three... but thinking about it, I get an incredible amount of enjoyment from smelling and tasting, haha. As for touch... well, it's nice to have, and I suppose pain sensors help us a lot when we get hurt or sick, not to mention it's sometimes nice feeling fabrics and other stuffs just for the heck of feeling them, but I didn't really hold that as dear to myself. Am I missing something here? TOUCH seemed really important to me when I first read the poll... but ehh. So there I had it~ end; fin.Hopefully I'd never actually have to make this choice IRL, though... pwah.

Hard to decide, but I'd lose my sense of smell if I had to, as I have a horrible one right now anyways, so the loss won't be too bad~

This, I can't really smell anything half the time and apparently shrimp has a smell as someone told me yesterday. sad I had no clue...

I'd choose touch.

Quote from tactics
Just because someone's head was chopped off doesn't mean they're dead. That's just silly.
