Glass of Water

Sunday, May 15, 2005

I poured some water in the glass and looked. Half empty or half full?

Looks like you are making new records. This one is going to be shortest post, I think :)

So, what conclusion did you come to? Half full or Half empty? I say, don’t waste your time thinking about it. Drink the water without being bothered by anything. It will taste sweeter. Hm yes, they taught me in school that water (HIJKLMNO) is tasteless but still.

its half full! And yes, like VLady said, don’t waste your time thinking about it, just drink it! BUT./…..

after drinking it, you can think, ‘did I drink half full glass of water, or half empty?’ :wink:

sach main cheating hai.

one of many answers: the glass is neither half-full nor’s jst twice as large as u need it to be!

dun kill me pls..u did after all ask the qs :P

The glass was half filled with water and the remaining half with atmospheric air. Was that not yaught to you in your school when you were 8 to 10 years old ?


May 15, 2005 at 9:12 pm

Sorry, my finger slipped and “taught” was written as “yaught”

You poured water in glass to have a look at how it appears to be or to drink it?

Another question that needs answer :)

VLady: LOL, I don’t know. We’ll see at this diary’s 3rd blogiversary (if we reach its 3rd blogiversary, that is) if this is the shortest post. But yes, it’s one of those posts in which the comments’ length would be greater than the post itself!
As for the half full or half empty glass, I didn’t come to any conclusion. I just shrugged and drank the water (after completely filling the glass). And I must say, I liked the ASCII representation of water’s chemical formula! Truly genius!
And it did taste sweeter, after I added some teaspoons of Tang in it.

NJ: Er, well, actually this is an update. I swear I clicked the ‘new entry’ button on diary-x’s control panel. :D

Dinky Mind: Okay, it’s half full, I believe :) you And after drinking, I knew I had drunk a full glass of water, with Tang!

Wild1: Sigh, I am ready to swear again. And wait a second, my glass is never larger than my need. *stares and holsters his gun*

IABhopal: Well, actually, I don’t remember much from my school days, so … And thanks for visiting, you have a nice blog :)

Asma: Maybe it was both. :) Now, answer my question!


May 16, 2005 at 12:36 pm

Smart kid!
This does not qualify as an entry.
That damned glass tipped over. There is, now, not a drop of water in it. Trust things to be as bad as this.
Urghhh…OK, so I wil take back my &*(&& mood to my own *()&*^& blog.

You had a half-full glass of Tang….Just half glass of Tang… are you on diet???


May 17, 2005 at 3:37 am

How you made a post out of a half-full glass of water, is beyond me. I’m over-awed, I’m humbled, I’m at a loss for words, I’m dumb-founded, I’m…I’m…I’m…scratching my head !!!

How do you do it, O’ Great Blogger!? :grin:

P.S. Your last post was really awesome…


May 18, 2005 at 7:03 pm

stop looking at ur water and drink it! sheesh.


May 19, 2005 at 10:03 pm

its half empty. As well as your entry. Water is imagined as your entry and the glass itself is imagined as the small entry column of your entry :P


May 20, 2005 at 12:27 pm

I see it always half full.


May 21, 2005 at 12:08 am

The glass is now empty. Saadat’s stomach is half erm, half empty or half full?

Dinky Mind

May 21, 2005 at 1:21 am

May 22, 2005 at 4:33 am

May 22, 2005 at 8:48 am

A: I hope your mood is not &*(&& now :)

Nauman: Aap khud hi bata dein kay koi kya kahay ga:)

Vaqas: Right!

Moiz: Er … *scratches his head* … Yaar I am sorry to say that I’ll continue being unfair in the near future. *hides*

BaptizedLucifer: LOL. Well actually I did add Tang to the water, but didn’t think about straw or mouth. I prefer using my mouth.

Dinky Mind: Read again. FULL glass of Tang!

Saady: Define evil. And okay, since you are also saying that it’s half full, so it’s half full.

Fallen Angel: Er, is scratching one’s head synonymous to being over-awed, humbled, at a loss of words and dumb-founded? Hmm. And I still don’t know how I did that. And thanks for liking the last post :)

Sadiya: I already did that!

Echa: Finally someone who would say it is half empty! By the way, are you studying logic nowadays?

Shirazi: Good for you! :)

VLady: Saadat’s stomach is full right now. Thanks to the breakfast :)

Dinky Mind: LOL. No worries!

Saroosh: There you go. The diplomat! :)

May 23, 2005 at 4:40 pm

Saroosh: Well now you know.

Harris: Ah! How could I miss this fact? :)

Gul: Not really, it’s not a census. But yes, it is an update. And in the end, I guess it’s really how thirsty a person is.
