    I liked the Californian wine, and it was cheaper by the gallon.

    Now, after reading all these replies, I'm not satisfied with my former answer.

    I'd say the glass is half full.

    Adding on to what I said before about the fractions, if the glass was full in the first place, a half empty glass would mean a half emptied glass meaning 1/2.

    Does that make sense?:)

    Why don't we all have a virtual drink together, give each other a virtual slap on the back for being such good chaps, empty the the glass and free up the bandwidth!

    Seems like a good idea to me :D,1/2 full is half empty aswell,half empty=1/2,0.5,50%,half full=1/2,0.5 and 50% so there.

    Trick Question Ya......?

    It's more than half full, since a glass is not normally filled to the rim. Spillage, you know.

    Besides, I thought that the "most difficult question known to man" was, " what is the meaning of life, the universe, and everything". That answer has been set by default at "forty two".

    The most difficult question known to man is, "Does this make my rear end look fat?"

    If my glass is half empty or half full, my answer is "Damn I need more Beer"

    When you can walk without tearing the ricepaper.(Shaolin Master to Caine (Kung Fu))

    A yes answer could prove fatal given to a woman with PMS.

    if you have something to refill the glass with, it's half full.
    If you don't, it's half empty

    if you are about to run out of something to drink, then you would have a pessimistic outlook.

    If you have plenty to refill your glass with, then you are optimistic.



    relevence you see............
