If you ask an engineer…

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “The Glass.”

Is the glass half full or half empty? Well, I can’t claim complete originality in my post, but I recall coming across the perfect response on the interwebs at some point, and it is that from an engineer’s perspective.

An optimist will say it’s half full, a pessimist, half empty – but to the engineer, the glass is obviously too big. Alternatively, if you ask the chemical engineer, the glass is always full, no matter the size, as it also contains air 🙂

So if your glass is looking a bit empty there are 2 options for you: One is to get a new glass. With a level control to ensure constant liquid level. It’s much more efficient.

Two, change your perspective and you’ll never have to worry about this silly question again!
