Aye, Right – Scottish, the sarcastic response to someone who you suspect is fibbing.
And Common Sense
It’s common sense, isn’t it! You’ve heard it, I’ve heard it, everybody has heard it! It’s used daily in everyday speech!
But, what is it? Everybody when they use it, think they know! It qualifies their comments and helps justify them!
More often, it’s often used to simply justify a belief, lack of knowledge, opinion and, often, even prejudice! It is used to cover up ignorance, lack of objective analysis and rational investigation and thought.
And, I’m not alone in questioning common sense, Albert Einstein had something to say about it too!
Common Sense is nothing more than a deposit of prejudice laid down by the mind by the time you are eighteen!
Always, happy to hear your views and opinions too!
