Story idea: while on public assistance, welfare recipients are denied the use of their colour vision, as well as their senses of smell and taste.

Well, I'm sure the guy who invented Soylent (the real one, not the people) would like that, although from what I've heard he wouldn't even understand the problem. Dude does not seem to have functional taste buds.

Anyone else who approves - ick.

I can see it useful as an OPTION. If you have to live in a dump with horrid decor, next to a fertilizer plant, and eat whatever's on sale, it might be useful to selectively (and temporarily) disable some of your senses.

I'd personally enjoy being able to turn off my hearing on nights when my neighbours are partying.
