Good point. A lot of people think the problem is simply lack of decent software for the computers to use to interact with the world.

Heh heh. If "sense" is "common", why is there so little of it?

Indeed. Have you ever watched the TV show "1000 ways to die"???

One of the most idiotic: A man camping out wanted to get drunk. He had heard that
there was alcohol present in gasoline. So he siphoned some gas from his car and drank it.
Of course, he threw up almost immediately. He might have been OK except for the fact
that he was standing over an open campfire at the time....... Hey everyone! It's crispy
critter time!

Or another guy on the 80th (approx) floor of a scyscraper who wanted to prove
how strong the windows were. He crashed against one.... Oops!

I'm honestly surprised that you would watch that show. When I turn it on, my wife has to leave the room. She just doesn't appreciate Darwin.
