So today's topic on the drive to Ft.Dodge market was....Would you rather be blind or deaf?
Well there are pros and cons I guess.Like having one foot. Unfortunately you'd still have to pay full price for a pair of shoes. And hopefully you'd have to find someone with the same shoe size, and the opposite foot missing! Then your shoes would be half price!
If you were deaf. You couldn't enjoy your favourite genre of music. I'm sure if you were at a concert, you could read the lips of other fans to see what set was being played? Now if you were having sex, do you sign that your reaching orgasm? Or play along with it? What if you really suck at sex, and you make a mistake and the person yells at you to get the fuck off . And you perceive that as an orgasm?What the fuck do you do? Besides get a boot to the head! I guess it would be cool, Cause you can't hear whining significant others. And if you made a horiffic mistake at work. You could sign or write on a slip of paper.."I didn't hear you!" But I guess not being able to hear someone say they love you(without reading their lips.) would be the worst!!!
Now if you were blind. You could always say.."I don't see your point!". So my socks don't match.....Fuck off! Does Hustler come in braile? Feeling everything with your hands would feel odd I guess. What if you heard a sweet voice, felt the persons face and other regions..And then laughed! Would you get beaten with your walking stick? What if your seeing eye dog had a personal vendetta against you? You yourself couldn't prove it. Now could you! If you take your seeing eye dog into a store, swing him overhead in a circular arc..Are you really looking around the store? Do people with severe acne count as braile? Not seeing your surrounding world would suck. Nor seeing a sunset or a sunrise. Not being able to see the seasons transverse into the next would blow! Biggest drawback would be not seeing the person you love, hearing their voice, but not being able to see them utter those words!
Guess I was Thinking about a friend I use to do estate auctions with that was deaf! He was super mellow. But extremely obnoxious:) Wonder how he's doing?
Why do farts smell?
A: So deaf people can appreciate them!
