    Full = 1 , Empty = 0
    Half of 1 = 0.5
    Half of 0 = 0

    So half empty = 0.
    Ditto... that's exactly the way I've always thought of it.

    To the optimist, the glass is half full, to the pessimist, the glass is half empty, to the programmer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be

    Assuming that we're conducting the experiment here on earth, where we have a nice cushy atmosphere. The glass is half full of liquid, and half full of air. Therefore .5 + .5 = 1. The glass is all full. However, given the fact that mass is mostly nothingness, due to the enourmouse (sp?) space between individual atoms and the electrons that go around the nucleous. The glass is mostly empty, probobly somwhere around 85% or something around there.

    Another 'Depends'

    a = pure spring water;
    b = bacteria infested swamp water;
    c = half
    d = full
    e= empty
    Code:
       if water = a
         then conclusion = c+d
       else if water = b
         then conclusion = c+e

    your answer depends on what you are concerned about..........if you are concerned that the glass should be full or near full, then you would say the glass is half full...........vice versa

    Half of the days the glass is half-full, half of the days the glass is half-empty.
    But if there is beer in the glass, it isn't half anything for very long.

    If it's beer or wine it's half empty, if it's water or a soft drink it's half full

    Does that mean there's no beer either

    Anyways, for me, the glass is half empty... about 90% of the time.
