    Default Glass half full

    You know the old thing about he glass being half full or half empty, and the engineer says the glass is twice as big as it needs to be? Well I just heard a new interpretation the other day:

    "The glass is refillable."

    You make of the glass what you will.

    My version - "The glass is incompletely utilized."

    "The glass has been thrown at someone in a bar fight".



    [Which got started in a debate over whether it was half full or half empty]

    The one store sign, for I think a locksmith, seen around on the web:

    If life shuts a door, open it again. It's a Door. That's how they work."

    Doc.

    The glass has room for a doubling of your product. Now work on the rest of the production line.

    I’m in the camp that says”whether the glass is half empty or half full, I still have more to drink”.

    The glass is full, unless it's in a vacuum, then it will soon be empty.
