If you had to lose one of your five senses ...

    To lose smell and taste would be like drinking and eating nothing. I find happiness in the taste of foods. Without it, life would seem extremely dull.

    I'm with ya, sacolton, but at least you won't bump into things or get run over by a car...

    Changeling, you sure about that? I have an uncle who's lost his sense of smell, and he still loves food. He needs his wife to smell raw meats and milk at times because he can't tell when its spoiled or rotted.

    Hearing, no question.

    You will find the vast majority would choose scent, even if it means losing scent and taste together.

    Give a tougher choice: Lose sight or hearing? Still, the majority will choose hearing.

    Could you even imagine losing the sense of feeling?

    I can't pick one

    I would choose to lose sense of taste. If I couldn't taste how good food is, I would never have a weight problem again. I can't believe anyone would vote to lose their sense of smell. How would you know if you're smelly?

    Yes, I'm sure. :)

    My husband's nephew has no sense of smell. Never has. It doesn't seem to affect him that much but maybe he just doesn't know what he is missing.

    He seems to enjoy eating and seems to be able to taste things.
