Well it obviously exists, because SOME people use it quite often. Others though...

Depends on how one interprets common sense
A genius might say that knowing cold fusion by the age of 12 is common sense
A hacker might say that accessing top secret files is common sense

See perception my friends.

You know that little voice inside your head that tells you not to do stupid shit?
That's supposed to be common sense.
People have it, it's just they don't use it, then when they get hurt they whine about it.

This is not 4chan, stop at once you newfag, if you're going to edit something edit it correctly and spell "unrelated" right.

So raged i forgot to answer the question.

–noun
sound practical judgment that is independent of specialized knowledge, training, or the like; normal native intelligence.

So common sense is having good judgment without the specialized knowledge of knowing something. Such as... you see a laser beam, you don't know the actual truths behind it and you don't know how it's made, why it's made, and what it does. But you sure as hell don't fucking touch the damn thing. This, this is common sense, sure not everyone has it, but it sure as hell exists. Explain yourself now.

They call it instinct, i call it common sense.

Yes it does. It's something a human would do even without thinking sometimes. But some people tend to forget.

You're in the wrong section if you want an actual discussion. But I'll add my 1 cent (the recession hit me hard):

You are wrong, common sense does exist, but like you said it varies between people and societies. For people who grow up in cities, it would be common sense to not cross the street when the crossing sign is red, but for people who grew up in a forest who have never been in a city and have never seen cars, traffic lights, etc, they wouldn't know any better. On the other hand, for people who grow up in a forest it might be common sense for them to not touch a plant with a certain leaf shape, but for people who live in the city who don't know anything about that plant, they wouldn't know to stay away from it.

So common sense exists, it's just a subjective concept. The closest thing to universal common sense is basic survival instincts.
