The Glass



The Glass

Pessimist: the glass is half empty

Extreme pessimist: the glass is half empty with a dead bug floating in the polluted water

Optimist: the glass is half full

Dying man in desert: it’s not enough

Drowning fly in the glass: it’s too much

Paranoiac: What did you put in my glass?!?

Biker: Glass? We don’t need no stinkin’ glasses!

Buddhist: I accept that the glass contains the right amount of water

Zen master: the glass is an illusion

Sheldon Cooper: Glass, as anyone of the least intelligence knows, is an amorphous solid material that exhibits a glass transition which is the reversible transition in amorphous materials (or in amorphous regions within semi-crystalline materials) from a hard and relatively brittle state into a molten or rubber-like state. Glasses are typically brittle and can be optically transparent. I will not bow to petty social pressure by stating whether I personally view this particular glass as being half full or half empty.

Scientist: the glass is full, half water and half air

Engineer: the glass is the wrong size for its function

Scientist: the glass is full, half water and half air

Jesus: he who drinks of this water will thirst again
