    Does anyone else look at some of the threads on here and seriously ask yourself "What the hell is wrong with him?! Really?"

    Have we as people lost common-sense? Is it due to our lack of communication with others, as we spiral into our self-absorbed existence?

    I think you pretty much nailed it---not that common sense was ever that common, but selfishness seems to be up several thousand percentage points.....

    Yes, but we're too self-absorbed to care what other people think. :smile:

    I'm always fascinated to know what you think.

    That's not new. They always do.

    That thread is satire. It's hilarious. You didn't get it. Just sayin . . .

    Not only has common-sense been lost, but people seem to be getting dumber too. There are entirely too many idiots in my village.

    Yes during the 60's and 70's the flower children married the dope heads, and now we are dealing with blooming idiots.

    You know I try to take in peoples age and life experience when I consider some of the points that are brought here for discussion; however recently I began to find some credibility about peoples behavior during a full moon cycle.
    Another thing I always take into consideration before making a snap judgement about a post is if english is not their first language; sometimes more than a little is lost in translation.

    Something i'd say that is changing is society in general is growing increasingly narcissistic. There's a strong cultural impetus. So maybe it's a lack of that kind of social common sense.
