Which is more important to you, your ability to see or your ability to walk? (UserQ)
I would want to see because.if I couldn't walk I would be.fine. but I love.seeing things
if i couldnt see i wouldnt be able to walk anyways.... honestly i cant walk as it is, i have horrible balance.
What's the point of walking if you can't see where you are going?
I rather have my eyes, I rather see then be blind. :)
I'd rather see my useless leg rather than my legs kicking me in the face.
As a gamer Video games would be so hard without sight especially my favorite fps
U can learn to walk ez but if ur blind or something it's impossible to really learn how to see but not that I'm making fun of blind ppl
Hard to walk if u cant see
@EPIC- I am officially very impressed.
Gleftog makes a good point.
I could still read music in a wheelchair, so I'd be fine.
Definitely rather be in a wheel chair than not be able to see... I enjoy my sight.
I'm hoping to be able to get a motorized chair/scooter-considering the shape my elbows & shoulders are in-I don't go far in my manual. Am TRYING to find an apt fitted for a wheelchair & on first floor. Beginning to wonder if that's impossible in this area.
wheel chairs or scooters are amazing these days! is there an equivalent substitute for eyesight?!??! hell no!!!
If i cant see were im going, whats the reason for legs?
I've been paralyzed and told I wouldn't walk again. 8 months in a wheelchair and 4 more with a walker. it sucked but I'd live in a wheelchair before I'd go blind. at least u can still drive. lose ur sight and a lot gets takenaway.
I can live without legs.
But without eyes I wouldn't be able to see how people answered the question on here.
And then I wouldn't be able to correct them when they give the wrong answer.
I'm an artist so I'd be skewed if I went blind...
BUT-considering how much I read, (2-3 books/week usually, plus a LOT of blogs/news sites), my sight is most important. I can't use any of the usual glaucoma drops because of an allergy; so right now I just PRAY I see long enough to my first grandchild-AND everything else... ;)
Uuuhhmmm...considering I'm legally blind from glaucoma AND, well, am *supposed" to use my wheelchair, (I can't walk more than about 80 feet these days-BUT, NOT ready to "sentence" myself to the thing 24/7), I don't have much of a choice in the matter-I don't want to give up either one!!
@EdMinasyan. it's called using a "screen reader" such as voice over on iOS or JAWS on windows-based computers.
Sight. I was once blindfolded to see how it was and it was an awful, dark place. I've had family members in wheel chairs, and they're perfectly content with their lives. They can still watch sunsets, and the ocean, an all the most beautiful things.
You couldn't walk places if you couldn't see
I worked hard to regain my legs, but my vision is more important.
Would the numbers be different if the question was;
What do you check out first on your blind date?
she/he is part of the religious wrong.
if I couldn't see I couldn't pity the babblers pathetic views.
@Epic- most of your skills you listed require sight to properly achieve. Eg. Identifying poisonous plants.
I would prefer to keep my eyes. They have prosthetic legs that function, so you really haven't lost much. Prosthetic eyes' only function is cosmetic.
I would rather loose my ability to walk than to loose one of my 5 senses
Many people choose not to use thier legs any way
@EPIC. that's awesome!!! I'm only 13 too and I can do some of that stuff too! That's amazing though!
@DH3 why do you think they call it the religious right? It because they always think they are right about everything.
@HolyBabble what makes u the judge? Lol
To see. I think life would be harder being blind. At least for me it would
An overwhelming majority of you (90%) got this one right.
@EPIC, sounds like you are preparing for the Hunger Games...LOL As far as losing your vision and the way you see things, If you previously had sight you would still have your visual memory and thus all the visual concepts you previously had.
Good grief, EPIC. You may the only one of us left alive on 12/22/2012!
if I lost my sight I would be disconnected to the Internet
