Is the glass half empty or half full?

Or is there anything in the glass at all?

Is the glass really there?

Or is your mind playing tricks on you?

    ahh..

    the gloass is either full, or becoming empty…

    then it is filled again… until i drink it…

    when it is empty… prior to being replenished

    and drained… ad infinitum…

  2. JetSki

    depends on your mood and who you are

  3. Eli
    on November 30th, -0001

    obviously both.

  4. BloodFlower
    on November 30th, -0001

    If you are optimistic: half FULL

    If you are pestimistic: half EMPTY

  6. CaliforniaDream

    depends.

    are you pouring or are you drinking?

  8. SoftballPlayer

    it doesnt matter what mood you’re in. it’s always half empty.

  9. matrixmaruda
    on November 30th, -0001

    i think my mind’s going insane. It likes to play mean tricks on me. For example, one time, my brain told me the glass was half full, while it was obviosly half empty. And then when i went to pick it up, it turned out there was never a cup there. It was actually a mini bucket. stupid mini, good-for-nothing buckets. They get me everytime!

  10. Kea

    depends on what you are comparing it too.

    Which glass?

  12. Dan

    The glass is neither half full, nor half empty, it is just two times too big.

Is the glass half empty or half full?

For me, I’m kinda like “Wow! I’ve got a glass!”

  1. Fantasies
    on November 30th, -0001

    Always half full – am i skint yes i am – but only because i have five wonderful children to keep in trainers – sweeties – xbox games – pocket money – i could go on.
    Is my house a mess – yes it is – but only because we are all so busy with doing stuff / having fun / sitting here playing on the computer, etc.
    Has the weather been foul – yes it has but we haven’t been flooded out and my house is warm and cosy and dry.
    Have i got more inches around my waist than i would really like – yes i have but only because i have had 5 children and my lovely husband brings me home chocolate a lot!! – and he does all the cooking!!
    Actually you know what – my glass it totally full!!!!

  2. Kiss

  6. NoName
    on November 30th, -0001

    ityou are right , becuasee,
    if a glass is like water something that you can have
    then it is half full becuase they are the same unless you want to be a ophilosi[pher and say, a glass ans water make me think of other things that i can have

  7. DawnsAwaken
    on November 30th, -0001

    half empty every time, i’m a realist!!

  8. Bluberry
    on November 30th, -0001

    that’s cool. Yeah, the point that you have to assume by that saying is analyzation. (do you get what i am saying?) Why do you have to analyze whats inside the glass? Life could be great, or not enough, but atleast i have life, ya know?

  9. CoffeeCup
    on November 30th, -0001

    It depends what’s in the glass.

  10. WellBalanced
    on November 30th, -0001

    all ways half full

  11. ChickenLicken
    on November 30th, -0001

    I’m an optimist, so my glass is always half full.

  12. BlindPoet
    on November 30th, -0001

    depends if i’m emptying it or filling it

  13. Wildthing

    Neither.

  14. DarkDesire

  16. Eli
    on November 30th, -0001

    It really depends on the person. If you’re a pessimist, the glass is half empty. If you’re an optimist, it’s half full. I prefer to think of it as half full because there’s still some left. Always think on the positive side of things- it makes a bad situation much better!

  17. BloodFlower
    on November 30th, -0001

    It’s neither half empty nor half full – the glass is just twice the size it needs to be

  18. Hippie
    on November 30th, -0001

    Or is it more relevant to ask, “Is my glass too big?”

  19. CaliforniaDream
    on November 30th, -0001

    From your point of view, the real answer is the glass is twice the size it needs to be becasue you are content with what you have

  20. FallingMoon
    on November 30th, -0001

    depends who’s getting the next round

  21. SoftballPlayer
    on November 30th, -0001

    Depends on your outlook on life.

  22. matrixmaruda
    on November 30th, -0001

    It’s half empty .. but that’s no reason to get down. Like you, ‘m just happy there’s a glass at all!

  23. Kea
    on November 30th, -0001

    Don’t ask me.

  24. Species
    on November 30th, -0001

    It’s both half empty and half full and there ain’t nobody that can change my mind on that one………..I’m along the same lines you are I’ve got a glass and hopefully something great is in that glass…………..;) CAT

  25. SymphonyOfSound
    on November 30th, -0001

    Depends, are you filling it up or guzzling it down?

  26. Zoe
    on November 30th, -0001

    I have always thought of this as a timing statement. Is the glass being filled or is the glass be emptied? If you have a glass that was empty and is now half full then the glass is clearly half full, if you are drinking a full glass to the half way point then the glass is half empty…………??????????????

  27. Rob
    on November 30th, -0001

    maybe, the water, in the glass, is exactly positioned in the very center of the glass. maybe… i’m happy just because it has water in it at all.

  28. GodThingie
    on November 30th, -0001

    It’s always half full

  29. ShoeLover

    My glass is half empty. I prefer to keep it real.

  30. BlueButterFly
    on November 30th, -0001

    it’s a 50/50 question.

  31. FantasyFootball
    on November 30th, -0001

    Half empty, for if is was milk or water, that would do me only good I would like to enjoy the whole glass. If it was poison that would kill me I would rather have the full dose so that it was effective and less painful.

    Yes

  10. ChickenLicken

    If the drink is coke and grenadine, definitely empty. If the drink is G+T, full.

  11. MorningAfter
    on November 30th, -0001

    Well, me, right now, thinks it’s half empty but I know that it should be half full.

  12. Fantasies

    where is glass?

    if u are positive thinker then glass is half full

    if u are negative thinker then glass is half empty

  13. Kiss
    on November 30th, -0001

    half full.

    this is a common expression, used rhetorically to indicate that a particular situation could be a cause for optimism (half full) or pessimism (half empty)

    I am an optimist!

  14. Flutterby
    on November 30th, -0001

    half full

  15. Horsewisperer
    on November 30th, -0001

    A glass can only be half empty if it was orgionally full.
    A glass can only be half full if it is all that was poured in to it.

  16. BlindPoet
    on November 30th, -0001

    Either way, the bartender had better fill it several times before last call.

  17. NoName
    on November 30th, -0001

    I would say that it all depends on the kind of day you’re having and whether you’re being rhetorical or not…

    If you’re being rhetorical and having a bad day – then it’s half empty – coz life just sucks

    if you’re being rhetorical and having a good day – then it’s half full – coz life is great

    ** if you’re speaking about an actual glass in front of you **

    if you’re having a good day (eg a nice glass of wine that you’re halfway thru) then it’s half empty – coz you don’t want it to end

    if you’re having a bad day (eg a yucky glass of lemsip and you’re halfway thru) then it’s half full – coz you still got a long way to go to finish it….

    but generally i go with half-full – i’m an optimist

  18. DawnsAwaken
    on November 30th, -0001

    i luv this question!
    right, if the glass was full and u drank it, then it’s half empty
    BUT
    if the glass was empty and u filled it up halfway then its half full. get it?

    in my opinion the glass is half full coz im optimistic…sometimes.
    is that ur best answer?

  19. Bluberry
    on November 30th, -0001

    I have 2 glasses in front of me… one is half full and the other is half empty. I need to choose which glass to drink form….
    ahhh the quandry.

  20. CoffeeCup

Help me!!! I can’t figure out if my glass is half empty or half full!! How will I know?

  1. GodThingie
    on November 30th, -0001

    if you just poured it, it’s half full. if it’s been sitting a while, it’s half empty…that’s how i see it!!!!!! 🙂

  5. Sunflower
    on November 30th, -0001

    if there are a lot of water marks on one side of the glass, it probably means someone poured out some of the water, making the glass half empty. If there are little speckles all over it, it probably means someone just poured water into the glass, making it half full.

  6. ShinyStars
    on November 30th, -0001

    Hope makes the difference! If you feel that you only have half left then it is almost empty. But if you realize that half a glass is much more than an empty one then you know it is part way full!

  7. EgyptianWonder
    on November 30th, -0001

    the engineer says the glass is twice as large as it needs to be.

  8. HighMaintenance
    on November 30th, -0001

    depends on what’s in the glass

  9. MindsEye

    If you have a grateful smile on your face

  5. Style

  6. DonkeyKong

    Now filling it again.

  7. StarbucksCoffee
    on November 30th, -0001

    Half full. I don’t think it’s possible to have a ‘half-empty’ anything. Nobody even uses that term except in a question like this.
    E.g. The box is half-filled with toys.
    I don’t hear anyone saying, “I have a box that’s half-empty with toys. Or I have a bag that’s half-empty with books… my stomach is half-empty… ” etc. etc.

  8. Casper
    on November 30th, -0001

    It doesn’t matter. The stuff in the glass is carcinogenic and will give you cancer and you’ll die.

  9. RainbowPop
    on November 30th, -0001

    If I am emptying the contents of the glass then it is half empty, if I am in the process of filling the glass then it is half full.

What do you think? I personally think the glass would be half full.. And also i believe it goes on what you are doing with the contents of the class (pouring in = half full, pouring out = half empty)

what do you think?

  1. Eli
    on November 30th, -0001

    If you’re a pessimist, it’s half empty, or like me, an optimist, it’s half full

    The answer has to be half full. Think of the pleasure you will have finishing it. Then going and getting another one.

  14. ShoeLover
    on November 30th, -0001

    Oh, I totally agree with your theory on what you are doing with the glass. You don’t just find a glass with water to halfway that just magically appeared. Though, if on the off-chance one did magically appear, the pessimistic side of me pushes through to say half empty.

    You could argue that it’s almost impossible to tell if a glass is exactly half full or empty, unless you counted up all the water molecules in a completely full glass and then took exactly half of them away… but that would just be stupid!

  15. BlueButterFly
    on November 30th, -0001

    Half full min,s half empty. Half empty min,s half full. same thing use what you like better.

Is the glass half empty or half full?

i think the standard resoning is bull, personally… why would it be good to have the glass half full? it could be all the way full, right? but it’s not. that makes me sad.
on the other hand, if you say its half empty, it could be all the way empty, no? why fret? it could be worse and it’s not! go with it.

what do you say?

  1. JetSki
    on November 30th, -0001

    Oh i dunno. I mean, you applied the energy to ask the question even though it’s been asked a thousand million times before. So you must be really optimistic that some new truth may be revealed by some additional thought to the matter. On the other hand, you could have actually thought about it and asked a question that was at least a little more original.

    Tough one! 🙂

    It is half full if you just filled it up and if you drank it down to the halfway point it is half empty….simple as that.

  3. BloodFlower
    on November 30th, -0001

    It is empty, because I drank it.

  4. Hippie

    when you want more, it’s half empty.

    its like saying its half of nothing. it cant be half of empty. cause empty is nothing.

  23. Fly
    on November 30th, -0001

    It depends on the persons out look on life. The half full people are supposed to see the good in everything and the half empty look for the bad in everything.

  25. Bambi

    Well it’s a great question, but really, let’s think about it. Assuming that you are actually drinking the milk, it can’t be either – and if it was half full, and it was staying that way, I would think of it more as an old undesireable glass of milk more then anything else. I look at it like this, something to dip my cookies in.
