I personally view it as half full. What about the rest of you?

It depends for me. I like to see my self as an optomistic person who always assumes the worst.

Half empty...Im not a pessimist, but I have my reasons, mainly because life isn't unfair, you always seem the get the smaller half, If you know what I am going for.

If I ask for a glass of water at a restaurant, and they give me half, then I say it's half empty. I want a full glass. I'm not paying for air. :lol:

Well you start from the beginning, and then fill up. Once you start filling up, you are invariably filling it. Therefor, it must be half full. If you were to work incorrectly from the middle, you would view it as half empty.
...what? :conf:

Oh, so this question's metaphorical? I'm going to bet the reason that the Aquafina's all gone is cause someone took it for there own twisted purposes. They filled 1,000,000.5 glasses, and we're all standing over our own .5 wondering if it's full or empty! 1-0.5 is the same as 0=0.5!

I'm so confused.

Look, I guess it all depennds on whether you're filling or draining the glass. If you are draining out, it's half empty. If filling, you say it's half full.

At least, that's what I'd say.

Climbing on a mountain
Floating out on the sea
Far from lights of a city
The elements they speak to me

Whispering that life
Existed long before breed
Balancing the world
On its knee

Don't see some men as 1/2 empty
See them 1/2 full of shit
Thinking that we're all but slaves
There's ain't gonna be

No middle anymore
It's been said before
The haves be having more
Yet still bored

Won't someone save?
Won't someone save
The world?


The capitalism of my thoughts................... Nostalgia, anyone!? Ah, never mind.......You're better off not knowing.

Who even said the glass or the water exists? Do WE really exist? Does our environmrnt exist? Does...

Reality swirled in a wholly blue manner, revealing absolutely nothing of merit. Things flashed madly in and out of existence like some entirely other sort of phenomena. On a whim, Kurt Vonnegut imploded, taking a sizeable hunk of Massachusetts with him. However, seeing as Massachusetts wasn't entirely sure it existed, the chunk wasn't all that big.

He means kind of 'Which sentance are you most like to say:

"That glass is half filled with water"

or

"That glass has water in it, but it is half empy"'

It's metaphorical. Half full is positive and empty is negative. This is here to say, basically, if you focus on the positive or the negative.

Life is full, drink it, then it's empty. But you can fill it up again and say "Henshin-a-go-go-BABY!!!"

What if we're in the Matrix? Then there is no glass.

Doing that often gets you the best answer possible. Although in this case, I'm not so sure...
