A well-known proverb states that an optimistic would say a glass is half full, while a pessimist would say it is half empty. What would people of different professions and walks of life say? The BANKER would say that the glass has just under 50% of its net worth in liquid assets. The GOVERNMENT would say that the glass is fuller than if the opposition party were in power. The OPPOSITION would say that it is irrelevant because the present administration has changed the way such volume statistics are collected. The ECONOMIST would say that, in real terms, the glass is 25% fuller than at the same time last year. The PHILOSOPHER would say that, if the glass was in the forest and no one was there to see it, would it be half anything? The PSYCHIATRIST would ask, ?What did your mother say about the glass?? The PHYSICIST would say that the volume of this cylinder is divided into two equal parts; one a colorless, odorless liquid, the other a colorless, odorless gas. Thus the cylinder is neither full nor empty. Rather, each half of the cylinder is full, one with a gas, one with a liquid. The ENGINEER woud say that the glass is twice as big as it needs to be for a given amount of water. The SEASONED DRINKER would say that the glass doesn?t have enough ice in it. Now, what's your "half-glass" story?

The Realist: It's half of a glass of something.

Nutritionists take: I am glad you are cutting your caloric intake in half. Make sure it's low-fat and protein-rich ;o)

My story... My 9 year old would say: "It's half-empty AND half-full at the same time! Can't you see it, Mom?" Duh.... hard to argue with kids' logic! Devo, Irocas ... you are putting us under too much pressure!

i think the glass is always half full because you can always add new things to it to make it even better. Half a glass of wine has room for pop to make it a spritzer.. mmmm. Half a glass of pop has room for ice cream for a float. So my glass is half full and looking to add something to it to .. um.. make my boat float? lol

My "half-glass" story? The different optimist view. Yep just waiting on Peri to come along and fill it for me - over and over again. NO!!! Dang... Well then maybe Triples, or Mariana. Before you know it I will be overflowing with a lovely puddle... Forever the optimist. lol. OK - I have to agree with Irocas. It is already full and stays that way.

The politician asks, "Which would you prefer, full or empty?"
