The Failure of Common Sense
Have you ever noticed the common sense labels on devises now a days? There are hundreds of examples of people doing stupid things that have forced companies to put ridicules warning labels on just about every device out there. The world today is like you are back in elementary school. How? Well, if you can remember, if one person in the class did something wrong everyone would be punished.
