A Glass of Water

A well-known proverb states: an optimistic would say a glass is half full, while a pessimist would say it is half empty.

The government would say that the glass is fuller than if the opposition party were in power.

The opposition would say that it is irrelevant because the present administration has changed the way such volume statistics are collected.

The economist would say that, in real terms, the glass is 25% fuller than at the same time last year.

The banker would say that the glass has just under 50% of its net worth in liquid assets.

The physicist would say that the volume of this cylinder is divided into two equal parts; one a colorless, odorless liquid, the other a colorless, odorless gas. Thus the cylinder is neither full nor empty. Rather, each half of the cylinder is full, one with a gas, one with a liquid.

The alcoholic would say the glass contains some water. I want wine!

A milkman in India would say that the other half has been left for me to mix milk in it.

A Copyrights Protection Fanatics – Somebody drank half of water and didn’t pay for it!

And when, the Opportunist (Me! Me! ) came into action…  (Woah! Tighten your seat belts. You may fall laughing)


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Well, today it is a different story for the glass. It was half something a minute ago, but now its full empty. I finally drank it. (Burp!)

Life’s a cycle. The glass will be washed now, be filled again, be debated on once more, and then another person would come and finish it off. To say that life’s a cycle is wrong for me. It’s a rollercoaster which takes everybody up and down, to the sorrows and the happiness, and the thrills of course! 🙂
