Common Sense

We had wonderful night with Mr. and Mrs. Huang. During the dinner, we talked a lot about “common senses” and “behaviors”.

  • Everyone has different common senses.
  • Common senses determines why you are who you are, and why I am who I am.
  • If you don’t change the behavior, chances are, the results are the same.
  • We often do something that does not make sense according to common sense. So common sense is not common.
  • Common sense sometimes does not make sense

Free Wireless in Coffee Beanery

Coffee Beanary at Biyun Road offers free wireless connections. The other favorite wireless place is Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf at 666 Fuzhou Road, Shanghai (at Yunnan Road) in People’s Square. Starbucks doesn’t offer free wi-fi.

Korean Singer “Rain”

Rain is featured in People in CCTV10. I have no sense for music, and don’t have any favorite singer, but this program caught my attention. Rain’s dream is to connect people in Asia, and form a new generation of Asia singers, and bring Asia singers to the next level, and lead the trends of the world. I would say, Rain is a person with vision. I appreciate visionary people.

    Man wants to divorce paralyzed wife

    A WOMAN, who was paralyzed in a traffic accident on her honeymoon several months ago, is suffering more now because her husband wants to divorce her, Oriental Morning Post reported today.

    The couple flew to Lijiang, southwestern China’s Yunnan Province, to enjoy their honeymoon on May 2005, but their trip was halted when they were involved in a traffic accident on the way to Yulong Snow Mountain.

    The wife received medical treatment but was paralyzed from the accident. At that time her husband said he would take care of her for the rest of her life.

    But the husband brought up divorce proceedings to a local court recently, saying that the two families had contradictions during their marriage, and their love was not as deep as before.

    “We lived in her parent’s home and I tried my best to take care of her, but they always abused me, even in public places and at my company. I had to quit my job,” the husband said in his petition.

    But the woman’s father said that he seldom stayed at home, by excuses that he worked overtime or on business trips. The wife also found out that he was flirting with other women according to his chatting record on their computer.

    The woman’s family said they paid 160,000 yuan (US$20,000) for her medical treatment and her husband kept 110,000 yuan that was donated by companies and friends. But the husband said he spent all the money on her treatment, as well as his own salary of 40,000 yuan.

    When the judge asked the husband whether they could compromise, he insisted on divorcing and the wife rejected the notion.

    The judge gave the man 10 days reconsider.

    i am a young at the age of 23 while i am at a loss what i should do to enrich my life. i gained the power from him and i hope i will be a person with vision.

    What is BiYun Road in Chinese, I think it mustn’t be “keeping from pregnancy”

  8. Exactly right. Your common sense is different from mine. When you are frustrated and yell to me: “Why can’t you see my point? Don’t you have common sense?”. Yes, I do, but unfortunately my common sense is different from you. Therefore, I still may not agree with you. My point is, a lot of people look at the world base on their own “common” sense, thinking their “common” sense is really common to everyone. Wrong!

  9. Different person has different common sense. If someone deems his common sense as popular truth, then

    disunderstanding happens.

  10. for me common sense is a sense you share with someone that you have something in common with. if you dont have something in common with someone, then chances are you have a different sense of accepting what is ‘common’. interesting article mr wang :)

    oh by the way if you can watch channel [v] from Shanghai, rain is listed #6 on their top 10 Asia’s biggest bands.
