The Optimist says the glass is half full.

The Pessimist says the glass is half-empty.

The Engineer says the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.


  1. As an ex Rolls-Royce engineer, (and with some irony based on my studies of aircraft production post war)) I would say that the glass met the specification handed down by the Ministry of Aircraft Supply for "a self extinguishing ash tray" perfectly.

    Tut tut, you'll be having a go at accountants next....

  2. Those with OCD say put that glass on a coaster.

  3. The conspiracy theorist says ..

    'How do you know it's just water ? Many deadly cocktails administered by the wet works brigade are odourless and colourless. So no thank you I'll pour my own water out of the tap. As long as the tap water doesn't have fluoride or high lead content. Both of which are futile attempts by the bilderbergers to dumb down my brain and make me more compliant. Just like their deadly swine flu 'vaccine'.

  4. Wow - I never knew there were so many interpretations of a simple theme!

    Nikos - I wasn't having a go at engineers; rather the reverse, in fact. I'd never have a go at accountants - I can't afford to.

    Bucko - brilliant. Of course, I have both OCD and ADD, whioch means I keep forgetting to check stuff. Actually, I have CDO, which is like OCD, but with the letters in alphabetical order AS THEY SHOULD BE.

    Don - that's almost too true to be funny.

  5. And the patent attorney will say "Liquid H20 bisects an open container"

  6. And I say 'half a glass of proto-beer'.
