    Knowing is half the battle.

    -G.I. Joe

    I don't mean that facetiously. Common sense should be more common.

    Sadly, it can't be. Common sense isn't common. It's a learned behavior, and some people learn better than others.

    Some I learned from old guys at work when I was younger...
    "If it don't fit, don't force it"
    "If you can't find it, grind it"
    "If at first you don't succeed, get a bigger hammer"

    And another favorite Vonnegut quote I try to remember when I write...
    “Here is a lesson in creative writing. First rule: Do not use semicolons. They are transvestite hermaphrodites representing absolutely nothing. All they do is show you've been to college.”

    That show had some of the best dialogue ever written.

    Im sadly obviously not a true browncoat as I had to look up these quotes to see where they originated. But I did really enjoy that show and must watch it again.
    Your first quote reminds me of something like:

    "You don't have to outrun the bear, just the guy next to you!" Such an inspirational self-sacrificing quote...not!.:)

    I agree, but ironically that's the only episode I don't care for. Mainly I don't like that actor (he was annoying on Buffy & Angel too).

    As a kid I can often remember my dad replying to some inane comment I made about something I saw on TV: "Well if its on TV it MUST be true, son!"
    He would often follow that up with something similar, about using my own common sense about what I see and hear, thats stood me in good stead in my life:
