Sometimes Natalie wondered what it was like. She’d lifted trucks single-handed. She’d survived a megaton bomb blast. She never felt pain. She never felt rain either, or a spring wind, or a fire’s warmth. She wondered if the trade-off was worth it.

  1. Surviving a bomb blast sounds great until you start listing all the little things that she will never know that we so often take for granted. Then, suddenly, the trade-off doesn’t seem so great anymore.

  2. Sometimes yes, sometimes no. But I’d probably keep the feelings anyway, even the bad ones. 🙂

  3. Quirky. I like it.

  4. This one made me think! Would I give up the comfort and the pain of the ordinary for the extraordinary? Hmm.

    I don’t know. I think feelings are overrated. Engagingly philosophical.

  6. The power of the walls we put up to keep ourselves from getting hurt. And superheroes are probably the worst offender of this technique. You win my hitchhiker!

  7. I like this one a lot!! Great hypothetical question. It’s a real “thinker” !

  8. They had a character on Haven who had this kind of reverse neuropathy, where he couldn’t feel anything, getting shot or punched or anything. It’s a really interesting concept I found myself thinking about a lot. I don’t think I’d trade the feel of wind blowing or kitty love bites. Well, maybe the bites.
