Default Something to get off my chest

Well it is not a confession . I was listening to the radio one day and some guy called in and he said something like: "...this is glass half full/half empty situation..." I started thinking about it and came to the conclusion that it is an impossible question to answer - "if a glass is filled with half of its volume, is it half empty or half full?". Yep, impossible, without knowing what happened before. If the glass was empty and then filled to its half - then the glass is half full. If the glass was full and then emptied to its half, then it is half empty - simple! Apparently, this cliche is used to determine if you are a pessimist or an optimist - STUPID!!!
