Is the glass half empty or half full?
Doesn't that depend on wether you just drank from the glass or not? If you filled it to half full, then it is half full. If it was full and you drank it to half empty, then it is half empty.
However, no matter how REAL of an answer to that question I can conjure, I'm still pessemistic. Which, unfortunately, seems to be the same as realistic.
I envy those with a positive outlook. Ignorance is bliss, right?
