I would have to say Mute.  If you were blind, you would not be able to see life happen, and you could type/text/write what you want to say.

I'd rather be mute because I usually say things I don't mean. I have very bad eyesight. But either way both of those things are so bad. I think there was actually one person who was both blind and deaf(not mute) and that would be Helen Keller. You can check it out on this site and see how she overcame her obstacles. Interesting stuff.

If I had to make the choice, I would go with mute(deaf) because I know I could still communicate with the many technological advances there are.

I would choose mute becasue my grandmother got blind at her late days. That made her life misarable and sad because she was an active person going everywhere when she was young and she hated being dependent on other people for help even she wanted to find her shoes.

Mute, absolutely - no one would miss my mouth! But I would miss seeing the beautiful world God created.

I would rather be mute. I think you would be more helpless if you couldn't see what is happening around you. I could always use sign language or write to communicate.

Ohhh this is such a tough question...
I'm a hugeee music fan, so I need my vision & my hearing for it...
If I had to chose, I'd definitely keep my hearing. I'd go CRAZY without music.

The question is on whether you choose to be blind or mute, not deaf.  ;) Since vision is important to you, maybe you opt for mute?

Exactly... you can still hear if you are mute. :thumbsup:
