If you had to lose a sense (taste, smell, sight, hearing, or touch) what would it be? And why?
God forbid, I know its a hard question but you have to choose 1, so if you had to lose a sense (taste, smell, sight, hearing, or touch) what would it be? And why?
If I had to those one it would be sight. Its the lesser of the senses. I believe I would still be able to function having no sight.
It would be smell. The simple reason is that I have already a problem with my nose that most of the times my smelling function is not really working. My experience tells me that life goes fine without it and hence I think won't be a huge problem if I lose it altogether.
I'd go with sight. It would be the equivalent of walking around with your eyes closed. People can be hired to help you get around.
Not being able to smell would effect one being able to taste and not being able to (feel) the touch or embrace of a loved one would be heart breaking.
It also would be dangerous not to feel as one could be holding something that is extremely sharp, hot, or cold which is damaging their nerves and they wouldn't even know it. Walking around with broken bones or bad sprains would also harmful. Pain warns us.
yeah me too, smell, as long I can taste, see and hear, i don't mind losing my sense of smell.

I noticed I no longer care for the taste of apples which have long been a staple of my diet. Today I took the time to smell my apple and it smells like a musky all suit of clothing. What is it with apples? Is there a coating that they are not informing of us?HELP! Inquiring...

What smell or taste triggers something in your memory ?There is a curious emotional connection between taste and smell and sometimes one of these two senses can be triggered without any prompting.
