    Sad But True!

    Can be so unfathomable.     The Death of Common Sense By Lori Borgman     Three yards of black fabric enshroud my computer terminal. I am mourning the passing of an old friend by the name of Common Sense. His obituary reads as follows: Common...

    No Respect For These Kind Of People.

    I have this one friend who send her nudes to every single boy she talks to in our school. I really don't have any respect to these kind of girls. And one time one boy showed her nude pics to everyone. She was crying and asking why is her life so miserable. (TF) I'm the kind of...

    Wtf

    I know that from time to time, people will do something in which they don't use common sense. Normally, it's simply because they honestly didn't know, but made sure not to repeat the same mistake. But the ones I'm talking about, are the ones where no matter how much you tell...

    When I go to church on Sunday mornings, my neighbor from down the street where I used to live picks me up and then we go to pick up another friend. In the latter, the friend lives on a street which is uncommonly narrow and difficult to negotiate if both sides are full of parked...

    It Still Shocks Me

    I always had a lot of faith in my fellow human beings.  I never realized how many people out there just don't have common sense.  When I started working at my current job, it never occurred to me how lacking people are, it just dumbfounded me. I spend all day on the...

    We're All Part of It

    I hate "duh" people, but so many times I'm "duh" myself, no joke! My friends know that, unfortunately... Being a smart and intelligent woman, I still fall into that category. Maybe it's how my brain works. Many times it doesn't work the same way with common...

    Guy messages girl. Guy insults girl.

    Guy blocks girl. Guy unblocks girl. Guy apologizes to girl. Guy blocks girl. Getting to know someone just isn't what it used to be.

    Common Sense Has Nothing To Do With Intelligence.

    I have seen the smartest people I know do the dumbest things. It amazes me daily how stupid people can really be about everyday things. The lack of common sense is astounding. I know college professors that can't operate a coffee pot . Children that score A's on tests but can't...

    Are You Talking About the Government Again?

     You mean like giving $70,000,000,000 to a major company last year, so they can stay open. (do I have the right number of zeros?) this year we gave that same company only $30,000,000,000. However they are in debt 90 billion so the 30B we just gave them did nothing.  I...
