In a survey of 7000 16-to-30-year-olds, a not-entirely-surprising 53 per cent chose tech over their sense of smell. Most of us here at Giz picked tech, since we’d obviously be massively unemployed without it. When we put the question to you on Twitter, most of you agreed with us, though our readers might not be the most impartial audience.

Here are a few of the more thoughtful responses:

@richard_dorian: “I gave up my hearing for tech a long time ago so what the hey, might as well give up my sense of smell too.”

@ryan_garcia: “smell,because eventually they will have an app for smell.”

@RaghuKannan: “smell! Most things smell like shit anyways.”

@efycho: “Tech, because someone who smells good just turns me on. Tech? My iPod doesn’t turn me on, unless I have porn on it.”

What do the rest of you think? [NY Mag]
