i was really sick. my french friend said i should go to the doctor right away. i explained if i went to the er i would have a $1500 bill. i would just wait until they called me back and see if could/woudl get an appt the next morning.
in certain countries, it's common sense to bribe people into doing things or to cheat on your taxes (cause taxes are so high so to pay for all those free doctor's visits).

it also has more to do with the way you think and adapt to situations. book smarts is mostly about retaining a ton of facts you learned (in school or through reading...etc.). common sense is more about having good instincts and being able to handle a variety of situations based on things you've picked up through life experience.

LOL. I like to put my wife in that category, although I would say she's more "dippy" than dumb. She's from Florida and is a product of hanging with the white party girls at her school. (University of South Florida) We're both in school although she's pursuing her masters while I'm in search of my B.S. I'm a much better writer than her, and have done a few papers for her to help her out (including a 10 page thesis in which I got her an A) and sometimes give her a hard time about turning in work with grammatical or spelling errors. She thinks I'm trying to down her, but I really want the best for her and want her to be seen in the best light by her professors. She's really, really good with money and oversees the budget in our house so I bow down to her there. I just hear Ghost in my head when she says something off the map, or mispronounces a word. I'm not a some grammar Nazi, I just want her to be more aware of the work she submits. Otherwise she's a great woman with great conversational skills and high intelligence.
