Would you rather...?

Would you rather live in a world without sunlight or without music?

I'd forego music. Music is great, but sunshine is nature music for the soul. Plus, can music make vitamin D? I don't think so!

Suzy said...

Do I still get sun warmth? Cuz in that case I'd pick music.

they sell pills that provide all the vitamin d we need
it's like sunshine in a bottle
as for plants
sucks to be them
i like being pasty
and i hate the sun!
with a passion

Without music. We'd all be dead really quick without sunlight. No sunlight means virtually no plants. No plants means no animals. No plants and no animals means no food. I imagine you'd also have no rain and no seasons... but hey, at least you'd have your music to sing your sad songs wishing for sunlight. =)

Midspeck, let's assume that the sun radiates all wavelengths except visible light and plants are still able to absorb energy in the IR or UV spectrum for photosynthesis.

My roommate, Heidi, and I would rather live with out music...there is no way I could live with out sunlight. Heidi says it's clincially proven that you can't live with out sunlight.

My roommate Emma wants to know if this is really a question about being blind or deaf cause she'd rather be blind than deaf. I'd still rather be deaf.

I'd rather live without sunlight. No question. Music is too important to me.

MidSpeck said...

That's so foreign to me. I hardly ever listen to music anyway, so it'd actually not be a big change to go without it completely.
Don't get me wrong, I like music and will sometimes choose to listen to it. I also think it can help to set a mood or be used well in movies. So, it'd definitely be missed... just not nearly as necessary as sunlight.

Thaddeus said...

Yeah. I'd go without music, too. Sunlight is free; music I have to pay for.

the chelak said...

music is just as free as you want it to be
i think i would be clinically insane without music

This is not a fair question. Now, if we had sunshine could we still sing? Because I would still break into song and create my own Musical-esque world, but if that weren't allowed I would rather have music than sun but then my SAD would kick in and either way, there would be no me in the world.
Sigh...now that is the question. Thad,would you rather have sunshine or me? Yes, think very carefully abou that. :)

Taylor said...

Music is my life. I would have to go with that.

Almost everything I do is music-related. Anything else is just a side-thing.

Yeah, it would be terrible to live without the warmth of the sun, or the green trees, but if the world existed without the sun, than we must have found an alternative way of life. You can't miss something you never had.

I would have to say that I would live with sunlight, because we would all die without it. However, what a dreary existence!!!

What you should ask is..."Would you rather live without sunlight or coconut?" Everyone would be able to answer that question without blinking an eye!!!

Thaddeus said...

Mmmmm. Coconut.
