So reading around recently, I have noticed that a lot of our 'patrons' seem to be erring towards the half empty view on life....what are you....and possibly why?

Mathematically arent they equilelent?

Half full is 0 + 1/2, which is 1/2.
Half empty is 1 - 1/2, which is 1/2.

No difference. :)

Depends, If someone filled the glass it's half full, and if i have already used some its half empty.

The glass is half empty and I'm half full, which means I'm going to order another pint. :KS

A pessimist will say that the glass is half empty.
An optimist will say that the glass is half full.

hmm, when i'm out drinking with friends the philosophical parts like this usually don't show up till we've progressed to drinking out of party hats(the plastic kind that don't leak but have a decent volume) i'd just say the hat could do with a top up but for now it'll be good.

but you're talking about Scotland....party hats aside, philosophical parts like this turn up pretty early!! (happy Easter!)

yeah, we do usually start pretty early. 9 am has seen us start on a crate of booze more than once.

Where's the "The volume of the liquid is half the capacity of the glass" option?

I have water in my mug; I know I can sip from it anytime I want. I care not about how full it is, nor how much water is in the mugs of my peers... And I am happy. 'tis the true way of thinking to the path of Enlightenment. :)

Oh, come on. It's not that the cup is half full or half empty, it's simply that the cup is too big!

It's twice bigger than it needs to be.

I'm not trying to be an obnoxious enforcer of grammar but It's "It's twice as big as it needs to be" or "It's two times bigger than it needs to be". "Twice" doesn't mean "two times" in all the meanings of "times".

Wouldn't you have to try to be obnoxious to be sincerely obnoxious?

I would sit around correcting everyone's grammar on the various forums that I post on... Problems I encounter are:

1) I'm too lazy

and

2) My grammar isn't that great and I would end up looking like an idiot within a short space of time..

but yeah., "twice bigger" did fekkin annoy me :)

Where's the bar?

The glass contains whatever you put into it.

LOL I first opted for the first one then decided to do the second one but didn't bother erasing what I wrote ;) It's all good English is not my native language I'm allowed to break grammar ;)

The way I see it, if you fill a glass full and drink half, it's half empty. If you only fill up half, it's half full.

Then again, I'm being way too literal on something that's supposed to be metaphorical.

*edit* LOL, would it kill me to read the post above?
