Definitely my left arm. Mostly, because I am right-handed. However, that's not the only reason. I think of my left arm as my feminine arm; and, if a girl is going to be injured, I think it is sort of poetic for it to be her left arm.

Left arm. I am right handed, so it wouldn't matter much. Oh, I wouldn't be able to play baseball. What would I do without baseball.

I'm left-handed. So, right arm. What a morbid question!

Left leg. I need my arms for guitar and I predominantly use my left leg to stand on, which would make things interesting.

I am a bowler and If I broke any other limb I would not be able to bowl.

I'm a leftie, so I guess I would prefer my right arm be broken.

Left arm, because I can walk and write fine without it.

Left arm because I'm right handed and I still want to be able to walk.

I like walking, and I'm right-handed, plus a left-arm break would probably win me a deadline extension on my book. :)

either leg, but i picked the left one, just because! i do so much with my arms that i thought it would be smoother living with a leg. i guessed i could find a way to get around with out a problem.
hey, this is a HYPOTHETICAL question and i guess i get an a+ for answering without any questions........

Left arm. I'm right handed and could still function regularly. Walk, drive, eat.

I choose "other," and that is a broken pinky finger. I'm thinking the "other" choice should not have been offered, as it is a "you have to choose one" survey.

I would choose my left arm because I am right handed and losing my left arm for a while wouldn't be so terrible... I guess.

I have actually broken both ankles before and separated my right shoulder, (ALL different injuries), so I know that in my case being without an arm is more costly than being without a leg.

I would like to injure my back because then I would not have to do that much work at all. I think that that would be the ideal injury for me.
