Daily Prompt: Being Overloaded!

Daily Prompt: “Everybody gets so much information all day long that they lose their common sense.” — Gertrude Stein
Do you agree?

I think to an extent it is true. Learning something new each day is good, but when you are just being filled up every day with information you’re never going to really use or need, it can send you a bit numb. I know people at college who are brilliantly clever and knowledgeable but who will step out into the middle of the road without looking. Perhaps that’s just coincidence? I still think too much learning can suck the life out of you though – seven hours of college is enough, yet now some people want schoolchildren to stay at school for ten hours a day? Everyone needs a bit of a life!
