Common Sense may keep you healthy, but it's the Uncommon kind that makes the breakthrough (and also a lot of mistakes, so there is that...)

And technically, Chicken Little DIDN'T lie - he acted as he believed best with the data he had available to him that he was able to interpret with the education and experience he had obtained up to that time. Think about it, if the sky actually HAD been falling then he would have been hailed as a hero! I can't recall where I originally heard it, but in the Fire Department the phrase "If you want better results then get better training" comes to mind...
