Which of these two would be worse?

Being paralyzed from the neck down with no feeling, blind, deaf, sense of smell removed, and tongue cut out, yet still fully conscious and aware for decades until you die. You would be fed intravenously and pain killers would be mixed in to minimize sensory feedback.

Being tortured, mutilated, and subjected to horrific agony for decades until you die.

Unless it's Bon Scott, who sang lead for AC/DC and played some mean bagpipes on the early AC/DC song, "It's A Long Way To The Top (If You Wanna Rock and Roll)".

They are the opposite. One is extreme pain and the other is the deprivation of sensation. I was curious as to how torturous the deprivation of sensation sounds to others. There would be no pain. You would be immobile, could feel nothing, see nothing, hear nothing, smell nothing, and taste nothing and yet be fully consciously aware for decades. It might not be bad, except it might be long and torturous.

You hear about the bagpipe player who went to the mall?

He's walking around, got his arms full of packages and it suddenly daws on him that he left his car windows open in the parking lot, with his bagpipes right in plain sight in the back seat.

Horrified, he dropped everything and ran out to the car, but sadly he was too late. Someone had left a second set of bagpipes.
