Gaya nga ng sinabi ni XienahGirL ako daw ay isang ginoong kompyus ang katauhan. Marahil ay ganun na nga, sa kadahilanang, laging may mga mumunting bagay na bumabagabag sa aking isipan. Eto nanaman ako, nabanggit ko nanaman na nag-iisip ako. Nakalimutan ko nanaman na wala nga pala akong isip at kung meron man eh kakapiranggot lang.

Mabalik ako sa primaheng usapin. Nakatunganga nanaman ako buong maghapon at bigla kong naisip kung pareho lang ba ang salitang "ok" at "fine". Napansin ko lang kasi na minsan, may nagtatanong ng "are you ok?" tapos ang isasagot eh "yeah, im fine." Naisip ko tuloy, pwede mo sabihing "im asking if you are ok, im not asking if you are fine." Kaso parang mas lalong gugulo lang. Ikalawang halimbawa. Pag sinabi sayo ng kasintahan mo ang ganito "ayoko na sa iyo!" maaari kang sumagot ng "ok!" o di naman kaya ay "fine!" Kaya kahit anong isip ko, parang pareho talaga ang ibig sabihin ng "ok" at "fine".

Habang naninigarilyo ako, bigla na lang sumagi sa aking hinagap ang ideyang ito. Kung pareho ang ibig sabihin ng "ok" at "fine" bakit may mga taong nagsasabi ng "i'm ok, but im not fine." at ng " i'm fine, but im not that ok." Parang analogy lang din eh. Halimbawa:

Given: (considering ok and fine are the same)

Fine = Ok
Red = Red

Pag sinabi mong "i'm ok, but im not fine", para mo na ring sinabing, pula ang suot ko pero hindi pula. Anak ng kaanak anakang anak ng mga anak. Aba'y parang pinagloloko pala tayo ng mga amerikano eh. May nalalaman pa ang gobyerno na proyektong ESL (English as a Secondary Language). Eh magulo naman ang mga salita ng mga amerikano. Yeah, I speak the language. But i did it because it is mandatory in school's academic subjects. And in order to graduate, you have to follow the rules. English/American people kept on saying that you should follow the rules but i can't help but notice that they keep breaking it themselves. For example, the word laughter, is the gh sounds ff? NO! How about the word manslaughter, it has the word laughter in it but we read it as man-isloter not mans-lafter. Now, I agree with ESL (English is a Stupid Language) DEMET!

Hinagilap ka ang ibig sabihin ng "ok" at "fine sa google, at eto ang mga nakalap ko:

Ayun, naliwanagan na ako, ang "ok" at "fine" ay literal na hindi magkapareho ngunit nagiging pareho, depende sa konteksto ng pangungusap. Ang "ok" ay mayoryang ginagamit sa pag sang ayon while "fine" is majority used in saying the state of one's self being well.

Maliwanag na madilim, maayos na magulo, naiintindihan na parang hindi, oo, siguro nga kompyus lang talaga ang katauhan ko. O siya, paalam, nagugutom na ako, kain muna ko.
