Would You Rather Wednesday


It's been forever and a day since the last "Would You Rather" question. I've missed treating you guys like my characters and putting you in uncomfortable situations and watching you squirm. ;o)

Now that I'm only posting on Wednesdays, I can't go back to doing one question a week...but I promise to work in at least one a month. So without further ado, on to February's question:

Our world has suddenly turned into an unfortunate dystopian society where our "Capitol" has decided the best way to keep us at bay is to eliminate one of our two major senses. As a favor for our cooperation each citizen gets to choose which sense they have stripped from them.

Note: if you try to revolt, they'll take both from you and every member of your family. (It's dystopian, dudes, it's totally meant to suck)

So, Would You Rather?? 

A) Surrender Your Vision

or

B) Surrender Your Hearing

Hearing. Then I'd have a better excuse to ignore people while I'm reading.

Sarah McCabe said...

Oh god. You are EVIL.

I'd have to choose sight. If I lost my hearing, I'd never be able to experience music again or hear my husband say I love you. You don't need sight to experience stories, you can always have them read to you.

Anita Saxena said...

Though decision...but it would have to be hearing.

Rusty Webb said...

Hearing. No doubt. I'd miss my podcasts - and the screeching brakes of the automobiles as I step in front of them, but I would be able to read still.

Stephen Tremp said...

Hi Tracy, great to meet you! I've thought about this many times. Although I would miss music terribly,I would keep my vision. At least I could read and walk around unassisted.

Matthew MacNish said...

Hearing. Defs.

Shelley Sly said...

That's a hard one! As much as I LOVE music (and even though my hearing is better than my vision), I'm going to stick with my vision and lose the hearing. I don't want to live without reading and writing.

Meredith said...

I'd surrender my hearing. I never thought about it before, but sight may be my favorite sense. Love these posts!

Patti said...

That's such a hard one, but I think I'd rather surrender my hearing. I'd have a hard time not being able to see.

Stacy McKitrick said...

When I first saw I'd have to lose one of my senses, I was hoping speech was listed, but it wasn't. So, since those are my only two choices, I'd have to go with hearing. I'd miss my music, but I'm such a clutz, I can only imagine what I'd be like blind!

Janet Johnson said...

Gah! Can't I just give up my sense of smell?

But alas, I suppose I'd give up hearing. :(

Kari Marie White said...

Hearing. Totally. Beloved Husband would rather give up his sight. Aren't we a fine pair?

Pk Hrezo said...

I've thought of this a lot actually. It's really tough. Give up sunsets and forests, or give up music and crashing waves. Tough tough tough.
In the end I'd probably give up hearing, cuz I couldn't stand the thought of being robbed of my eyes. But just think, no dancing. And life in total silence. Hey, maybe it'd be peaceful. lol

Justine Dell said...

Hearing. Totally. I like it quiet anyway. ;-)

LTM said...

oh, man! Hard one. I've thought and thought and thought about this, and I think I'd have to go with ... ugh! I don't know. sight. GAH!

can I change my answer? ;p

Margo Kelly said...

Easy. I would give up my hearing. I'm visually driven ... my world would end without my sight (I know, I exaggerate).

This is a question I've considered before, because I have a visually impaired son.

Saumya said...

Gah, this is hard. I'd say my hearing!

Stina Lindenblatt said...

Wow, how did I miss this last week? Hmmm. I'll go with hearing. I'm clumsy enough as it is. Without my vision, I'm doomed.
