It's highly illogical to even say "half empty". Through math, we'll work it out with this simple example.
We will say empty is equal to zero, then we'll see full is equal to one. Now, to say half empty, would follow as the proceeding equation, empty divided by 2, which translates to 0/2 when the variables are filled in. The answer to that equation equals zero otherwise known as empty. So by saying half empty means you're saying it's empty.
Now, lets try it with "half full". Obviously our equation for this will be full divided by 2. With variables filled it will be 1/2. Now you're left with one half of full. The way it is meant to be, and should only be.
if I was really pressured into answering this..yes i wud say i'm a realist..hence its neither full/empty just half..but honestly..who even cares?...just drink the damn thing or throw it away...
keywords.."think simple"...afterall that's what common sense is about ( yet it isnt so common...lol)
What's in the glass? If it's soda then it's have empty, cus I want more. If it's something else, then it's ahve full cus I don't want it. I choose half-empty though based on the optimistic/pessimistic thing. Because I'm more pessimistic then I am optimistic.
I thought about it, and rather then just say that half a hole, is still a hole none the less. I would say you need a standard size for a complete hole to compare the half a hole to. That way you can say, 1/2 an hour as the answer to the riddle .. lol
