Common sense in my opinion is those notions that allow abstract, intangiables to formulate a outcome without having to go through and systematically calculate all the variables etc.. It serves as a fast way to make decisions when quick decision making is needed. But not just because something appears to be obvious does it mean that it is common sense. If I spend all my money, then common sense would dictate I can not afford to go out to eat tonight. However just because this is a self evident truth, It still did not keep the vast numbers of American populace from making bad economic decisions .
