I know that's why for me the choise is extremely hard to. No more playing guitar,no more hearing new stuff from my favorites bands,no more sweet voice telling she loves me...but blind is worse my opinion. I could see I'm going blind

You could still feel the music with vibrations, so I don't think it'd be all that bad. At the very least, you'd remember the songs you liked before and could play them back in your head.

deaf.

I assume it would also be easier to adjust to in comparison.

Difficult decision. As of now I'd probably say deaf, but that's just because I'm enjoying the scenery outside right now. I'd miss my hearing a lot though.

I'd much rather go deaf, being blind would probably drive me to paranoia about everything that's happening around me :P

Most definitely hearing over sight. Choosing to be blind in the era is really saying something. What would I do without games, movies, internet or seeing my wife? I could deal with subtitles over descriptive dialog or actually reading books instead of listening to them.

Seeing as def isn't a word, I guess it can't be worse than being blind.

I think most people in general would go for deaf. The adjustment would be a lot easier and, while it would be pretty sh*tty, being deaf would be less limiting than losing your sight.

I'd rather be blind because I love music too much to be deaf. Also it would be cool not to be prejudiced against people because of their appearance.

No question. Deaf. I doubt I'd be happy living while being blind.

Not being able to see a single thing ever again and needing help to do everything would be worse.

Deaf, you can get by really easy with texting and the internet now for communication, but no music would suck horribly. My music collection and ipod would be worthless.

I suppose deaf. I like music, but to not be able to see anything and hearing things that would drive me to insanity would be awful.

You're not a car guy, you wouldn't understand. That isn't one of the worst things, but it would still suck.

Blind. A world without music is a world without beauty.

Well I can't really decide. Music is probably the most important thing in my life except for my Family and gf. But without seeing I couldn't appreciate the physical beauty of my gf and it would be complicated to do every day stuff.

*Also girls love deaf guys, so that's a bonus. With blind guys they just feel bad and think the guide dog is cute...

I would rather be deaf by far, I value my sight way more than my hearing. Plus if I lost my sight I would lose any abilities of what i wanna do

It'd be pretty bad either way. But I think I would rather lose sight. I could play instruments without seeing.

Both are horrible but Id choose deaf. I honestly dont know if I could enjoy life without sight. It'd be fvcking depressing. At least if Im deaf I can still play sports, watch tv, read, go on roller coasters, cook, or do just about anything. Loosing your eyesight means you cant do sh!t.

I think that would make it even more depressing in a way since I would know how great some pieces of music are and I would never be able to actually listen to them again.

You'd probably be able to tell most people's race through their voice.

Deaf easily. Life as a blind person would probably be sh*t. No video games, have to learn brail, have to learn how to get around all over. Deaf you have to learn how to read lips and sign language. It's a pain in the ass but it's easier than being blind.

Wonder how the people who say they can't live without TV/Internet/Games would have lived in the 1800's/1900's.:P
