The One Sense You Could Do Without

Let’s say aliens finally come down to earth, and they’re big jerks. They inform everyone that, in lieu of domination, they’re willing to take away any one of our senses. Everyone gets to choose their least favorite/least vital sense. What do you say, hu-man?

For me, incidentally, it’d be taste. While I know that food is important (ie, we need it to live) the other senses are really too important to me. As a side benefit some of what we deem as “taste” is really handled by the nose… but it might make some things like brussels sprouts easier to swallow. (Ha! Get it? Swall… er, yeah.)

Conversely, I think it’d be pretty difficult to lose my sight.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
