Honestly, just with logic, if you filled it that much to half, you'd be looking at half full.

If you drank that much to half, you'd be looking at half empty.

Not knowing which one, it's just a glass that is half a glass.

I honestly have too many 'sonas, not joking:

Rasachi, Spencer, Felix, Miles, Kentari, Crisis, Darkstar/Tibi

Ask about any of them if you want to know more.

Logically speaking, though, even an "empty" glass is never empty. Air takes up space, too. Granted, we can move through it, so it has significantly less density than a lot of other things, but it definitely takes up space.

It'd probably just slip out of my paw. I'd leave it on the table and use a straw.

oh no, logic questions, my nemesis! Lesse here by the glass being half full that would be following the route of the optimist, while having a glass that is half empty follows the path of a pessimist. With a glass being twice as large, I would see that as not having enough as you need essentially therefore you would only be left with something small compared to what you MIGHT have in the longrun. If the half in the glass were to overflow, then by proxy of having your cup runneth over it would signify overconsumption and that too much of one thing could be bad. The last choice I see as the path of the Realist, as we know what happens with water when it sits idle for a period of time is that it begins to evaporate to logically half the water in the glass has already become a gas as only water can exist as all three states of matter being ice, liquid, and water vapor. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...

I shall be glass half full man ^^
