I hope you don't feel alone with that question Libra. No offense meant. But I guess common sense is rarely found nowadays because people think they are too unique and refuse to mingle with other people who for lack of it are seen as fools, yet they too have a story to tell and we can surprisingly learn a thing or two from them. And then we too realize that our own common sense is not so uncommon after all.

Hello GT, good wishes. I hope you're using a user friendly phone, you just have to find one though if you so decide in getting one. Google could help of course. :D

Hey chu gize, (Ooh Cheech and Chong)

There is life I see, so there must be a God.

Great to see this up and running properly again.

Common sense is indefinable, and very poorly named. It is the rarest of commodities.

Lack of Common sense is why we need gazetted laws, Police and Military.

Glad to see you are checking in once again :)

I still believe in common sense and think that it is one of the side-products of the evolution and like everything else, somehow related to "survival" notion, yet the links and properties are covered by a mist: we do not understand our "social evolution" well, thus we define the "common sense" in a wrong way.

Common Sense is something that our parents would consider as knowing the difference between what is right and what is wrong. I think this is uncommon because of the direction society is going. I still believe in Common Sense because some of the little things could become bigger issues.

For example: Texting while Walking = "Distracted Walking" because someone behind you could be in a hurry to get somewhere and by someone doing this could impede the flow of pedestrian traffic or if you don't look where you are going, eventually you will either fall into a pool, or bump into someone, or bump into a light pole.

I believe it is up to the individual to practice good judgment or even break away from technology if they feel that is necessary.
