    Deaf. I imagine being blind would be harder to deal with.

    I wouldn't want to miss all the beautiful sights. Also it would be much tougher being blind.

    Blind. I think blind guys get more ass than deaf guys.

    Deaf by far...
    On the other side, I cannot really live without music, so I voted the tough question.

    Blind.

    Deaf people can't comunicate so well with other people.

    Blind. You can imagine and feel things you see, but nothing compares to sounds.

    Some blind people turn out to be great, look at Stevie Wonder and Ray Charles. ;)

    It's a tough decision, but I would choose to be deaf. Unfortunately I could never enjoy music again, but if I was blind I could neither go on the computer, nor could I see art. At least if you are deaf there are other ways to make up for it. Such as sign language, or closed captioning...

    Deaf would be better than blind, though I'd miss music.
    And I hope both sight and sound remain intact during my life.

    Obviously deaf.

    I would rather die than go blind.

    Deaf. I certainly prefer being able to see to being able to hear.

    I'd choose neither, but honestly, I think I'd lose more if I lost my sight (and my vision is pretty horrible anyway, I have really think lenses on my glasses) so I'd rather be deaf (as bad as that would be).

    I'd rather be deaf than blind anyday.

    Being deaf does have it's advantages as not being able to hear your siblings windge and carry on all the bloody time.

    I said deaf, then I wanted to change my mind. But now I don't. Tough choice, Either way you lose something really special. If it came down to having to choose though, I think I prefer the arts to music.
