    Just a thought.

    I was having a discussion with my friend, which lead to a discussion with my brother and thought what other people think.

    I'd rather have no legs because the dexterity and use of my hands in everyday life - writing, handling objects, typing etc. - is crucial, whereas the use of the legs pales in comparison. At least, that's what I think.

    I'd find it awfully difficult to play guitar and type and write without arms, and most of what I do in life is one of those three things.

    Easy - no legs. You can walk around on your hands (if you're strong enough) but you can't use your (own) feet to knock one easily.

    This thread reminds me of a bad joke:
    what do you call a man with no legs and no arms in a swimming pool? Bob.

    I'd agree and say that arms are more important. Our ability to do so much with them is one of the crucial things between us and other animals.

    I'd rather have no legs. Life would be a lot simpler with no legs compared to no arms.

    Having said that, I'd hate to lose any limb.

    No legs. The thought of having somebody else having to wash my 'privates' puts me off the thought of having no arms.

    Easily no legs.

    I could still have a great job.

    No legs. I'd miss all the sports I used to play, of course, but for a start my livelihood depends on the use of my arms, and all of my hobbies.

    No legs definitely
    Much easier to have working prosthetic legs than arms
    Nothing was mentioned about prosthetics so I can assume I can have them

    No legs. You can still operate a jetpack to move around if you have your arms.

    No legs. It may not be as easy to get about but plenty of people do manage in wheelchairs.

    I would feel even more helpless if I had no arms than if I had no legs.

    Definitely no legs.

    Without hands I wouldn't be able to type, write or fap. Unacceptable.

    I could still move in a wheelchair.
