    \[\huge \lim_{x \rightarrow \infty} \frac{ \frac{ x^3 }{ x^3 } }{\frac{ x^2 }{ x^3 } -\frac{ 4 }{ x^3 } }\]

    yes @zzr0ck3r is correct...the graph is asymptotic and looks much as so:|dw:1352777876926:dw|

    so as the number of 'people' \(x\) increases, the amount of common sense \(y\) approaches \(0\)

    concluding that there will always be common sense but it decreases steadily to a very minute amount, yet never reaching extinction :)

    well that was just logic....if you solve the equation you mentioned you get a slant asymptote of \(y=x\) ... i would say to consider the original problem again because LOGICALLY speaking there is not a \(positive\) asymptote because that would mean that humans are have increasing common sense which evidently is absolutely NOT the case (just take a look around lol) ...hope im being helpful here :)
