    I didn't really look at it like that. I saw a woman coming down with something that is very unfortunate, I hope she gets better soon.

    I cue in both ears as much as possible mate, anticipated this type of problem years ago, but I do actually just need to get my ears cleaned too!

    My dad has deafness from working with loud machinery half his life, but this type of thing is far more serious and I think it might be worse than blindness. If you can compare that thing

    Blindness... no way. Unless you're a real dnb head. At least the deaf can walk around, read lips and jump on a subwoofer for fun... I'm pretty sure you could mix house (or even dnb) deaf by reading the lights...

    Dustek, music is this girl's life, what she does to pay the bills, and something that solely relies on hearing alone. Going deaf is probably the worst thing that can happen to you.

    Personally I would rather be semi-blind than semi-deaf.....

    From an outsiders point of view there are more provisions for blind people to live a "normal" (prob the wrong word) life.

    yeah I was chatting about this to someone the other day, I kinda thought the other way around ... like you dont need to see to walk into shops, or catch a bus, or answer your front door.
    Was watching a blind guy play guitar on the street and he had a little cage over his money tray to stop it being knicked, counted his money by touch every few minutes.

    makes you think anyway

    Right, its a shame she wasn't going mute instead, that would be more of a blessing than a tragedy :D
