Stupid Daredevil meta  
From this post on Marvel's awesome Daredevil series:

For another: what the hell is fire to a blind person? You can’t touch fire (without dire consequences). You can’t smell fire. You can’t hear fire. If Matt describes the world as a place on fire, then what he’s essentially describing is a place he can’t touch. That’s — weird and wrong, given what we know of his abilities.

Are you an actual fucking idiot? You can't hear, or smell, or feel fire? Fire cracks and pops and hisses. The heat from a fire can be felt across a room, and you can smell smoke and the scent of the wood or paper as it burns. Fire is a full sensory experience. I realize most of fandom nowadays seems to live in mom and dad's basement and never interacts with the outside world, but for fuck's sake have you never been near a FIRE?!

Uh. Yeah.

Not only all those things you said, but it's not like Matt wouldn't know what fire looks like either. He wasn't born blind to begin with.
