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.

Those who answered "half full" are correct.

If it's my glass, it's half empty.

If it's someone else's glass, it's half full.

It depends. Did someone drink out of it? Cause then it would be half empty. Though if someone poured the water it, then it would be half full. Hm...

Well, you see, it all depends:

If you get a jug of water and fill an empty glass only half way, then the glass is half full

But if you get a jug of water and fill an empty glass all the way, then you drink half of it, the glass is half empty

I said 'half empty'.

I never thought about the optomist/pessimist stuff before reading the comments after voting, but it must have some truth to it, because I am pretty much a pessimist. lol

it's actually neither
us opto-pessemists (commonly referred to as "realists") say it's just "half"

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.

Half full.

People who vote Half Empty are considered to be negative, and Half Full'ers are optimistic. I've read that somewhere. <_>

it depends.

are we talking about a glass that started full and has had half of its contents removed or did the glass start empty and only get filled to the halfway mark?

Half-empty, because you are in the process of drinking it empty.

Reminds me of an old riddle:

It takes you an hour to dig a hole, how long does it take to dig half a hole?
Reply

Slike Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2005
lol.. thats cool :)

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 :P

I would have to say 'Half Empty' on this one, because if you were in a restaurant i am sure you would say a glass was half empty if they bought it to you!
