Full or Half Empty?
A well-known proverb states: 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
would say that the glass is fuller than if the opposition
party were in power.
would say that it is irrelevant because the present administration
has changed the way such volume statistics are collected.
would say that, if the glass was in the forest and no one
was there to see it, would it be half anything?
would say that, in real terms, the glass is 25 percent fuller
than at the same time last year.
would say that the glass has just under 50 percent of its
net worth in liquid assets.
would ask, "What did your mother say about the glass?"
would say that the volume of this cylinder is divided into
two equal parts; one a colourless, odourless liquid, the other
a colourless, odourless 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.
drinker would say that the glass doesn't have enough ice in
