One hears a lot of people refer to it. But what is it? What are the symptoms? Is it fictional?
Yes I like that statement very much Saleheen, and maybe they should stop calling it common sense if the majority of us - the commoners - don't have that faculty.
If it's no longer common then why should we call it common sense; we should perhaps start a campaign to call it uncommon sense and begin teaching this lost art of common sense, until it does become common again - then it can truly be called common sense.
Thanks for posting this topic and great answer Saleheen.
AAAAH Common Sense, I like the Uncommon Common Sense Movement... It can be seen everyday, society is loosing the 6th Sense...Yes richtwf we need a Campaign, a Movement,,,but is the world ready for it???
We all like to think that it is our neighbor, who does not have it.
hmm maybe common sense is the agreed upon correct way of doing things, but other people if they don't follow that agreed upon way of responding to things are called people with no "common sense". I think that most scientists have no common sense hehehehe.
Common sense is looking both ways and making sure there are no cars coming before you cross the road. Common sense is not sticking your finger into a pot of boiling water to see if it's hot enough. Common sense is not using your curling wand in the shower. Common sense is not driving after you've been drinking. Common sense is avoiding obviously stupid things. I guess whether you have it or not depends entirely on how you define the obviously stupid. I suppose it's subjective, although it really shouldn't be. Some people think it's great fun to ride their motorcycles without a helmet, down the white line, between two lanes of traffic, at 100 miles per hour, or to have unprotected sex, or to jump out of airplanes at 10,000 feet.
Whatever it is it used to be common, but now it's just fictional.

Can you buy Common Sense in one of our chain stores linked across our USA? Is Common Sense on the shelf next to the jar of 'elbow grease'? Maybe one could take an Adult Education course at your local high school Common Sense for Beginners - Ages 14 and Up with a Certificate of...

I just finished writing a hub on this topic and I am wondering if people out there think that we will be able to come to a consensus on a common sense approach to immigration or is this topic just too emotional for serious rational discussion? Thought?

There is no way for us to know if our morals that we have today is the right ones or not. Our Morals are made out of our "Common Sense".If we don't know if we have the right morals or not, then can we truly trust our conscience when it's based on the society/governmental morals?The common...

I don't want to hear one whimsical wine from a single anal atheist, nor see a single compulsive obsessive control driven ill-mannered accusation toward the subject of "proof."We have no proof, and that has been established. Not for those who are anal and demanding enough to require what...
