    we all need a reality check sometimes. if you would, i'd appreciate the House's opinion on this. either way, i'd also appreciate if you would express why you think so. thanks.

    i think lunchtime is over

    i believe your question is out of the context it was intended.

    maybe there's an agreement to disagree here:qqb010:

    but i wouldn't say "you're out to lunch"

    maybe you're just taking a fifteen minute break

    or maybe not

    it's hard to judge from this post alone

    but i will say this Mr anAFrican

    i'd rather you were here than not

    um

    is only good if someone really understands what's real

    you can't put a reality check on someone who doesn't know what

    reality is or their reality is not consist with the "real world"

    thanks. i'd rather i were here than not, too.

    but i've made more than one post. i've been here since Feb of 2005 and i think i've made enough posts for there to be sufficient fuel to form an opinion.

    i suppose it could be said that my "reality" is not consistent with the current "real world" perspective of how an African is "supposed" to be/act/respond.

    am i, then, overdrawn? or would that be "insufficient funds"?

    man

    don't sweat the small stuff

    p.s.

    i voted "NO" in your poll

    BTW

    and who's to say what's "real"

    what's real to me might not be real to a russian and what's real to a russian

    might not be real to a chinese person

    reality in some cases is relative, in other cases it's absolute

    like breathing, eating, and sleeping

    peace MY AFRICAN BRETHREN

    IF you are out to lunch then so am I. Stop paying attention to what people think most of the time they are just projecting. If a person cannot be specific in their criticism tell them to p%&* off! like i do.

    Bro, it's not often that a person ask my opinion, even when they didn't call my name.....so let me do it like this for ya! First of all you speak of "being out to lunch" as if it's a bad thing, but according to who? Ya darn skippy you out to lunch, over-drawn and bankrupt to the gills!....but guess what?...so am I and a whole lot of us. In fact, anytime you are "out of time" with the masses, "You Are 100% Out To Lunch!!! If you are too far ahead or too far behind you are out to lunch !!! ....maybe breakfast too....so enjoy your meal while you can and make it a vegetarian one !!

    In the Spirit of Sankofa!




    anAfrican,

    To remove uncertainty is virtuous only if the comments you receive are truthful. This thread would not have been started, if there was no degree of uncertainty felt by you. Here is something to consider:

    Recently, I asked for your friendship, and a note was left on your profile page. The question is are you out to lunch, correct? Consider, you have the option to accept or reject a friendship request, that’s fine, why would you delete the note left which provided a basis upon which friendship was being requested?

    Of course, you also have that right, to delete anyone’s note that hits your profile page, and you certainly executed. The question is are you out to lunch, correct? Consider, its obvious, for some reason, you wish not to be my friend, that’s fine, its your right. It is also your right to remove the note left by deletion. Normally, a person would respond by saying, thanks, but no thanks, I wish not to become friends with you, and here are the reasons.

    I expected a response to the note at least, although I much preferred you clicking yes; so, as it goes now, I have no clue why you elected to do what you did.

    It would be nice to know, but please understand this. Please understand, anfrican, I am fine with your actions, all is well between us, really, I have no malice against you, period. So, please don’t respond, if indeed you do, not necessary however, but please don’t respond by saying the opposite of what I have explained.

    This is an honest report to a honest question that you are seeking information on, and again that question is, Am I out to lunch.

    Again, this is no attempt by me to hoodwink you into becoming my friend, it is only to help you decide if whether or not, you are out to lunch.


    For the record, Keita's comment was masterful. I really enjoyed reading it. It was rooted in profoundness from beginning to end, well done Keita!

    well, in that sense, yeah, i'm truly enjoying this lonely road waiting for, watching for and being ready to help others of myFamily make this journey.

    however, i'm not sure that that is the context in which the observation was made. <sigh> "from the can't-win-for-losing dept.": i could wish that folks weren't reminded of this aspect of that question.

    so, if you don't mind, i'll take this as a "no" even though with respect to where this society is today, Mother Earth/Nature/Creation provides a most Divinely Wondrous Feast! <yum!>

    thanks!
