    again, i cannot make this decision when i love both so much. once you have experienced such senses it is too difficult to imagine life without them

    Screw speech, it isn't a sense, damnit!


    "You talk when you cease to be at peace with your thoughts;
    And when you can no longer dwell in the solitude of your heart you live in your lips, and sound is a diversion and a pastime.
    And in much of your talking, thinking is half murdered.
    For thought is a bird of space, that in a cage of words many indeed unfold its wings but cannot fly.
    There are those among you who seek the talkative through fear of being alone.
    The silence of aloneness reveals to their eyes their naked selves and they would escape."

    Rather lose speech =\
    If you lost touch then that kinda includes taste...
    Also, touch means you won't feel things (cough) and that'd make life really hard...

    Speech will always be the first to go.
    Besides, if you can't talk, you have a valid reason not to talk to people..

    Neither one of them would be that great a loss. If you lost your speech you could always right or get a real cool Dalek add-on pack. If you lost your sense of touch it wouldn't really matter that much either, unless you read via Braille.

    Now losing your sense of direction, that would be scary! lol

    Speech isn't a sense and can be replaced.

    Touch is a sense, and just trying going without it. You'd miss touch even more than sight.

    Speech. I can easily carry a laptop/mobile PC around with me and talk using Microsoft Sam xD

    Without touching, there's little to no meaning for me to continue living. D:
