Is neither a good answer? I think I'll pick neither...

I pick neither as they both just really suck in quite a big way. But if I had to be one or the other, I would rather be deaf. At I am aware of my surroundings when I have my sight and as such I can still operate as close to normal as possible. When I'm blind, all of that is gone and I live in a place where I can't live at full speed as I'm taking life at a crazy slow pace as I need to be sure of my surroundings before moving forward. So pretty much, it's extremely bad to lose sight or hearing, but much more so to lose sight.

Blind people can't watch subbed anime, so yeah.....I rather be deaf, like a majority of the population.


Same, I'd rather see then I'd rather hear people yappin' away.

It's a lot more care-free to be honest.

Easy choice for me, I'd rather be deaf. Kinda hard to be an animator and designer if you're blind, I'd rather not have to give up my career and passion, so deaf it is.

they are both very important, and i would hate to lose either, and it is not something you wish to see someone have. but i would rather be deaf than blind, i place more emphasis and joy on eyesight and being able to see what the world truly has to offer. i think hearing and sound is great but not as great as being able to see (in my opinion)

Sorry, I'd rather go blind.

As someone else said, I love my music, and I honestly don't want to limit it.

We are at the point where we can regenerate the hair cells in human ears (first human test trials have already begun) so when our generation gets old good chance we won't actually have to worry about getting deaf.

That's amazing! What promising news!

I hope it develops quickly. I'd hate to end up like my grandfather - you practically have to yell at the guy just to have a normal conversation with him lol

Science is remarkable though. So much to look forward to...

Deaf. There's always sign language as a replacement.

Awh man... that reminded me of this.
