Definitely blind. My eyes already aren't that great, and I rely a lot on hearing to compensate.

Deaf for sure. I'm more of a visual person.

I feel being blind would be far more limiting. Id much rather be deaf. Standing atop a mountain and looking at the vastness of my surroundings give me more of a sense of "being" then hearing the things in my local vicinity.

Blind, I think. I'd be totally lost if the only thing I could hear was my own thoughts. I really value silence occasionally, but I'd rather be blindfolded forever than have to always wear headphones that weren't connected to to anything.

Neither situation sounds easy, I'm very accustomed to using both senses.

Deaf.
I rather be deaf than blind.
Why? Why you may ask.
Because I enjoy seeing. Seeing colors, places, food, animals, people, how ugly they look. and o did I mention food~!!!!
Another reason.... I know ASL so I think I'll survive in this Planet we called Earth.

ASL is useless to anyone who doesn't know it.

Deaf would suck for not being able to listen to music and other sounds but wouldn't have to hear noise anymore either.

Blind has more disadvantages i think. No reading w/out brail, not being able to watch anime, play video games, see art.

I suppose i would choose deaf, even though i love music i think the cons to being blind out weigh the pros.

deaf. I don't need to flip a coin on that one. who wants to be in the dark for their entire life? also, learning to read lips would be total spy material for my resume.

I'd rather be blind. Being deaf would make it difficult to communicate since you can't hear what people are saying. You can't understand how words are supposed to sound. That sounds pretty scary. It reminds me of a thread recently that asked how deaf people think in their heads since they don't know what languages sound like. Not being able to see sounds scary too but at least you can still talk normally and hear what's going on around you. Not to mention, being blind would mean you have to enhance your other sense like hearing in order to compensate for your loss. I already have bad eye sight anyways.

Cover your ears then walk around your house...
Now cover your eyes and do the same...

I'm detecting humor in your words and you don't actually mean that.

Think the thread you're talking about will become redundant if applied to you. You'd already have an inner voice by now so when you go deaf, you have enough to work with. When you have people type to you on threads, i'm sure you'd judge the tone from the text in your head. You'd enhance your other senses if any of your senses fail.
