The Blind Leading The Blind


So today, i made comments on  my twitter and Facebook, about blind people and the hardships that face, i said something along the lines of: "I have super respect for blind people. i couldn't imaging eating food & not knowing what it looks like, that's like, half of the fun of eating. & i can only assume that blind people are exsessive butt wipers =/"

and...i TOTALLY agree with myself! Looking at food before you eat it, is fucking essential. I honestly think that food would taste all the same, & you genuially wouldn't know when you should stop wiping your ass, and i don't say that to be funny, but it's a true genuine concern of mine.

So then i thought to myself, WHAT would it be like to blind? you can't really tell when someones lieing to you because you can't see their facial expressions, and their actually the people that have to listen to people "talk the talk" because they can't see people "walk the walk". Remember in that Ray Charles movie where Ray was getting paid in 1's instead of 100's? THAT WAS SOME FUCKED UP SHIT! but then again, did it REALLY matter? there's nothing of value (except people and music) that blind people can truely value which i'm not sure if that's the best thing of all time, or if that's the worst thing in the world.

Blind people have no other choice but to be trusting of people, and they OBVIOUSLY can't be superficial, which lead me to this question: who's REALLY missing out here. it's a well known fact that men fall in love with their eyes before they fall in love with anything else, so if we took that misleading advantage away from human kind (eyesight), would we have more relationships that fruitful? (**btw i really hate that i just used the word fruitful, that's like the gayest thing but i couldn't think of any other word else)
