    Here is an image of a half-full cup:

    And here is one that is half-empty:

    Well, there is barely difference that I can see, so far.

    Now, I can tell that you are all confused why I posted this on EoF. It isn't the fact that I have a scientific opinion, it is just the whole idea is random and falls in the category of "What the f*** is this?". Well, I will show the image again:

    Now, since I might I have a bias opinion, so I am having a vote. Is this cup half full, or half-empty:

    The glass is full.

    It is filled to the brim with a mixture of water and air.

    It's been sitting there for a while so the mixture has begun to separate.

    Well, I thought it was half-empty, for someone drank out of the cup, so there for the cup is half-empty.

    Now, if someone filled it up, the glass would be half-full.

    Here's how I figure it. Which term you should use depends on two factors. It depends whether you are filling the container, or emptying the container as to whether you would use one term or the other.

    Example #1: You buy a can of soda, it comes completely filled, so if you drink half of it, it is half-empty.

    Example #2: You buy a glass (or just pull one out of the cupboard), it starts completely empty, so if you fill it halfway, it is half full.

    Example #3: If you completely filled that same glass and you drink from it to the halfway point, it would be considered half empty.

    While I feel my explanation is technically correct, either term basically means the same thing, so it doesn't really matter which way you say it. People will reason out what you mean in any case.

    So with that said, I voted TROLL. [​IMG]

    Since nothing is specified, I declare the glass full - it has both water and air taking up the space inside it.

    But while you're filling a glass with water you're emptying it of air and vice versa [​IMG]

    You've posted the same image 4 times, so a half-full glass and a half-empty glass are basically the SAME thing.

    So...

    Unless you're in a room without any other objects and gas beside you, the glass and water.
