Rhetorical Question

You are forced to give up one of your five senses (smell, sight, taste, touch or hearing). However, you may choose to compensate for the loss by means of synesthesia. For example, if you decide to give up your sense of sight, you can choose to smell colors instead. Or if you give up hearing, you might opt to taste music. If you give up taste, you could replace this sensation by feeling flavors. Basically, whatever sense you reject would be reflected through an alternative medium. Which of your senses would you surrender and how would you replace it.

Picks:

  • iMac
  • Black Friday
  • Xbox Original
  • TMNT
  • Locke and Key
