far vs. a long way


Почему far не “монтируется” к утвердительным высказываниям, но совершенно естественно звучит в вопросительных и отрицательных? Ср.

I live far from the centre of town.

I live a long way from the centre of town.

Do you live far from from the centre of town?

I don't live far from from the centre of town.

Почему ситуация с far меняется в утвердительных высказываниях, если пред far употребить наречие степени: too (слишком), so, в структуре as … as и в идиоме far from = not at all?

You're pushing your luck too far.
It's OK as far as I know.
I haven't had any problems so far. I am far from being lazy.
