Does the general public have common sense?
I would say yes, because most of the general public does. But all? Definitely not.
Not the general public i've encountered lately.....
I think at least 75% of the country has common sense. It's far and few between that I meet someone that doesn't have it.
This is very tough to answer because I feel like only half of population has any common sense, the other half mainly is split up into two categories: super super SUPER book-smart, or super super SUPER ignorant.
