Common sense is the best distributed commodity in the world, for every man is convinced that he is well supplied with it.
Rene Descartes Discourse on Method
Sorry. I don't think so. First no one had common sense until a good Scot presbyterian philosopher wrote about it. And I think the jury is still way out on whether or not Hume got it right then or we have it right now. So a) I don't have common sense and b) I doubt you do either and c) I doubt it actually exists. But then you all knew I was a doubter and a skeptic except where and when I am entirely too gullible.
