what a choice. I'm not blind, OR deaf, & I don't want to be either one of those. fuck, I'm blessed with perfect hearing & almost perfect vision & it seems outright ridiculous to choose between two curses I've never had the displeasure of experiencing.

but.. if I had no option.. I'd be blind. it'd get me a fucking Golden Retriever & if someone teaches the damn thing where my violin & piano are, I'd still be able to play. plus, my boyfriend is teh ugliez. =( sex would totally be no fun without sound. (not true, but you get the point)

I agree.

I just talked about this with Per yesterday actually. We both came to that conclusion. And also that way too many people wanna sound interesting elitist by saying: "Blind, I can't live without music!"

It's a lot easier living a normal life being deaf I think.

JoY
03-19-2006, 07:32 AM
And also that way too many people wanna sound interesting elitist by saying: "Blind, I can't live without music!"
I fully agree with that.
after I posted an answer, I read back & saw quite a few replied they couldn't ever live without music.. fuck, I could well live without music, but I'd have to give up on my violin playing & I'm rather attached to that after 17 years. & whatever, if I'm either blind or deaf, I can't become a doctor anyway. I need to observe for a diagnosis & I need to be able to talk about symptoms for a diagnosis, so basically I can't even complete the first step in the process being either blind, or deaf. if I can't be a doctor, just please let me do my fucking thing with my violin & I'd be fine.

but if I'd be deaf, I'd pick up painting, or something psuedocreative like that.

It's different for people who play music, and have been forever, and who it's a big part of their life for of course. But it isn't in most cases, for most people music is something they listen to, and love, but there are a lot more important things that are a problem when being blind instead.

*nods repeatedly* to me it comes a bit across like; "if ima def ppl, i cant here teh offspirn no m0!!!!!!11"

I mean, fuck it. try being unable to see all day. I know what it feels like temporarily to barely hear to being almost completely deaf for a few days (double earinfections on both sides). well yeah, that thoroughly sucks. but if someone blindfolds me for a day (which they did in the beginning period of the fraternity/sorority) I just lose it. not knowing what's coming, just hearing faint sounds coming towards you, not knowing where the hell you're going, what everyone looks like, having to orientate on sound & touch... it makes you fucking para & frustrated. & I know this can in no way be compared to experiencing this for life, KNOWING the situation won't become better. just imagine that at some point you forget what a sunset looks like & what the colour green is. gah.

And Deep Purple does hold the world record for loudest concerts in the world.
Wrong.

"In Hanover, Germany, Manowar established a new standard in ear splitting power by breaking their Guinness record for loudest band in the world. Two sound specialists officiated, measuring and documenting with painstaking care as Manowar shook the city, playing live at a staggering 129.5 decibels through 10 tons of amplifiers and speakers measuring 40 feet in length and 21 feet in height."


And I think I'd rather be deaf than blind.

I know! plus, there are hardly people that are able to speak in sign language, so you'd be about as dependent, as when you were blind, thinking about it. & communication is incredibly important to me. sure you'll be more vulnerable to miscommunication, not being able to see non-verbal communication, facial expressions & body-language, but when I talked about it with my roommate just now, I figured it's just a dilemma (thankfully a non-existing one), an option between two negative choices & they both have nothing but downsides piled up. EXCEPT when you're blind & your boyfriend is ugly. & Golden Retrievers are the fucking shit! but you might have to give up make-up, or you'll end up with mascara up your nose.

03-19-2006, 08:52 AM
I don't know about deaf people, but I think being blind also enhances your sense of touch, too. A friend once introduced me to this blind girl and had her touch my hand. My friend asked the blind girl if I was black or white, and the blind girl easily replied that I was a mix. I bet even people who could see properly wouldn't be able to figure that out so quickly!

Plumey

Maria: it is frightning to think about living in a world filled with total absolute absence of sight. no colours, no shapes... no nothing.

stupid story:

one time I was skiing with a friend in Switzerland & the weather was getting ugly. I didn't mind & took him for a last go up the mountain. once we were at the top, I realised I couldn't even see my own hand, if I held it reached out before me. everything was white. white-white. there was nothing else, except the white gigantic chunks of hail that rained down on us & covered the piste with even more white, which made it impossible to find the old tracks of where everyone had skied that day. at first I thought it was pretty neat, because it almost seemed like we'd taken a ski-lift straight to heaven. not being able to see the difference between the ground & the air.. no seperation of land & sky. I think that was what most amazed me. lack of good vision has never bothered me; I always race down like an idiot.

I looked around & tried to pick a direction. I should tell you, I've skied there for my entire life. I know every rock, every tree, every stone, every hump & every fence. still I hesistated, not being entirely sure of my sense of direction (which IS total crap, in fact). but it was so cold, that there wasn't time. if my friend hadn't been with me, I'd freaked out so much.. because I didn't want to come across as insecure or scared, since the last thing I wanted was to scare him too. fear often doesn't exactly come in handy in these situations.

I looked for the piste, which was covered by hail & new snow the second we'd stepped off the ski-lift. I couldn't find tracks, or anything. I couldn't see ANYthing. just a total absence of colours, shades & shapes. most of the times, when I looked around & looked back, I couldn't even see my friend standing right next to me. I said I knew the way (which I didn't) & picked a direction. we skied down (he trusted me), untill I found a pole. poles mark the piste, so in almost pure relief my eyes closed for a second (black - white, it didn't make any difference at that point) & I skied on with new found confidence.

untill I noticed after about 50 seconds that the snow was getting immensely deep, the mountain went down almost vertically & the poles kind of disappeared at some point.

I tried to climb back through our own tracks desperately, so we'd reach a familliar point somehow, but they disappeared quicker than we could climb. plus, we couldn't see shit anyway. it felt like my eyes were covered & I couldn't remove the cover. I tried to use all my senses to replace my eyes, but I couldn't. "but I've known the mountain my whole life, it shouldn't be necessary to even see where I am!" I thought I'd be able to ski down that thing even blindfolded, so to speak.

my sweat froze on my face. I was losing warmth & so was my friend, I was guessing. he wasn't freaking out half as much as I was, but I felt my own energy flowing out me & my lips & nose went from hurting to going numb. he became more & more quiet. I was stubborn; I kept looking for something familliar. not seeing anything made me frustrated, almost angry. how much you depend on vision.. it's just not fair. not fucking fair. I looked around, if I could see my friend. I called for him & when he first didn't answer, I started screaming. he spilled a drop of his energy giggling, because he'd been standing right next to me the whole time & didn't know an answer was expected. I let myself fall down in the snow & he came sitting next to me. I curled up against him, being colder than I thought I could be. I collected the energy I had left, lifted my head, so the sound would go as far as possible, & screamed "HILFE".

after ten minutes of screaming, someone found us. we skied down, holding hands & when we finally took a lift home & he looked at me, he bursted into wild laughter. my face was entirely white with drops of ice on it. my eyebrows & hair looked white with ice, as if I'd aged a 100 years on that mountain. my lips & nose were blue. at first I didn't get why he thought anything was funny, but when I turned to him to ask him "what?!", I cracked up. he looked like some kind of freak of nature. a Yeti, or something. what a frightning experience... but with a good ending. except that he fell in love with me, I didn't love him back & we never talked again.

Well, looks don't last forever, cliched as that may be. I don't know many attractive old people, but I know of quite a few ugly old people who can write beautifully. It's one of those things that not only lasts over time, but also improves and matures. In the long run, being a good writer is probably more useful. Though I suppose that's based on opinion.

And speaking of growing old, I'm probably going to end up going blind or deaf at some point anyway, since both have occurred in my family history. According to my eye doctor, everyone ends up getting cataracts if they live long enough. And considering the music I listen to, I wouldn't be surprised if I go deaf before I turn 40. :rolleyes:

I think Beethoven was deaf, wasn't he? He still composed awesome music, even if he couldn't entirely hear it.
