    The only reason [I think] I voted for half-empty is because it seems to leave potential for improvement...

    Hm, I voted for full. Though it really depends on the time of the day.

    I'm optimistic, and I chose half empty. What we have in the glass is cool and everything, but we can still work to get a full glass, and then it will be even cooler!

    I voted that I see the glass half full, but, I mean, I'm aware the part that isn't filled is half empty. Wish there was an in-between area. Black, white and gray. Job's not done yet.
    And I'm open to the possibility of free refills.

    The glass is half empty if you're drinking out of it and half full if you're pouring something into it.

    "The glass may be half full, but the empty side always comes out on top."

    Quoted, author unknown.
    ...Then I ducked my head and the lights went out, and two guns blazed in the dark;
    And a woman screamed, and the lights went up, and two men lay stiff and stark...

    The glass is half empty. Saying it's half full associates a positive nature towards something that could be improved.
    The probability that I was procrastinating when I was typing this post:

    P(have big assignment due) = 0.6
    P(posting on TypoC) = 0.2
    P(having big assignment due | posting on TypoC) = 0.7

    P(posting on TypoC | having big assignment due) = .......


    Eh, I'll finish it later.
