If you had to lose one of your 5 senses.. but you could choose which one... which sense would you give up?

Oh man, without a doubt - smell. No contest.

The problem with losing your sense of smell is that you lose most of your sense of taste as well - you still taste salty, bitter, sour, sweet, but none of the nuances.
That said, I think I'd still go for smell when the alternatives are sight, hearing or touch.
But I'd miss it.
