Views of the drinking glass

Variations on the "half full/half empty" argument:

Optimist: The glass is half full
Pessimist: The glass is half empty
Engineer: The glass is twice as big as it needs to be
Accountant: Does that glass really need all that water?

Quantum Physicist: The glass has a 50% probability of holding water

Philosopher: If no-one looks at the glass, who's to say how full or empty it is?

Matter of perspective: Half empty or half full? Depends on if you're drinking or pouring.
