  • If you were fated to be in a bad accident....

    ...that would leave you either blind, deaf, or with amnesia that wiped away all your memories, which loss would be the worst?

    There's too many good memories in my life to have them wiped away. This would be worse than blind or deaf. If I had to choose, deafness would be the better choice since I'm half deaf and have tinnitus.

        Blindness would be the worst to me.

        If I had my memory wiped, I could just start life over again . . . .and if someone came up to you saying you owed them money, you could honestly say "I have no recollection of borrowing money from you, sir, let alone even knowing who you are. Remove yourself from my presence."

            Can't we just go down from pure exhaustion like Jack Crabb in Little Big Man?

            "I knew you were a good man." Those are the word very boy likes to hear.

                Choice is obvious for me. I'd choose blindness.

                I couldn't stand never being able to hear music again...simply could not stand it. No way.

                My memories are who I am. Can't lose those.

                So I'm blind. Someone would have to tell me "that shirt is blue." Big deal.

                It's clear that the entire GOP is acting under the influence of Kompromat

                Ed phobes fathered my child, the child which is music within me, suckling on his talented teet. His new CD is the breast pump which collects his sweet, sweet boob milk for all the world. Bravo Ed, Bravo!

                  Also there’s been some great blind musicians.

                . .. . . . but you could never enjoy seeing a beautiful woman again.

                  I'd surrender the memories. It's never too late to start over and most are visual acquisitions, embellished by the aural, so starting over with the tools makes the most sense to me.

                  But, I suppose if you need to place some measure of value on memories, even though they are the culprits that imbued you with your negative outlook on life, the intolerance they refined in you, the reclusiveness that binds you to a singular cultural blueprint, the divisiveness that you subliminally champion, and the general vice-versa stigmatic cut of your character, then you have thought it over thoroughly and arrived at your choice to retain them.

                    I have my memories for that. Plus, as a bonus, my wife would always "look" as young to me as she did the day I lost my sight.

                    And as Marcy Lord/Oakland used to say..."In the dark, all women are beautiful."

                    I just couldn't live without music.

                        His comments here when Melody (? - your dog) died were pretty bad. I think he trolled me really bad (with a different moniker) when I first got here and started a CyberJam.

                        Haven' heard from him in a ling long time.

                        (I almost corrected "ling long" but decided I like the way it sounds).

                          Yes...Melody (RIP).

                          Ling long is strangely appropriate.

                            I would have to go with blind...and hoping for self-driving cars so I'm not at the mercy of my bandmates to get to and from gigs. I have worked with several blind musicians over the decades, and nearly all put me to shame with their ability to hear. I have high frequency hearing loss [can't hear them dog whistles anymore] and mild tinnitus from years standing in front of a Marshall SL100 in my youth, but if I couldn't hear music, or laughter, or children's voices...I may as well be dead.

Activities here have been temporarily disabled since the fundamentals of mathematics, physics and reason may be incomprehensible during this indeterminate period of instability. Normal service will be restored once we are certain as to what 'normal' is."

                            Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally used up and worn out, shouting '...man, what a ride!'
