New Poll - Glass of Water
This poll was inspired by MewMan. I was pondering over whether to include choices like "totally full" and "totally empty" but decided not to. Simple is good. But why would it be halfway? What happened to just a quarter? Or perhaps all gone? Why would it be all gone... you were greedy and drank it all? Or you were giving and you let someone who was thirsty have it all? Or it's all full because you like hoarding...

You can discuss the philosophy here:

Previous Poll Results:
Question: Will there be a time where human's aren't at the top of the food chain?
It already happened! Remember Aliens, Predators, StarCraft, and Starship Troopers? - votes: 2309 (18.5%)
2012 is drawing near... - votes: 1636 (13.1%)
No! We will always be at the top! - votes: 1897 (15.2%)
Were we ever at the top? - votes: 6666 (53.3%)
There were 12508 total votes.
The poll ended: September 18th 2010

Now why were we never at the top? Perhaps with the human wars and such, we never could be at the top. Always destroying ourselves... Do we deserve the top at all? Or perhaps the majority believes in some kind of higher existence.

Edit: Didn't notice this until someone pointed it out in the comments, but 6666 people think that humans were never at the top. Pure coincidence

Who's glass is this? My glass is bigger, and it's completely full.


» Perim on September 18th, 2010, 2:07pm

Depends on whether the glass started completely full or completely empty.

Started full -> half empty.
Started empty -> half full.


» LinkMcCloud on September 18th, 2010, 2:09pm

Yeah, I tried that. I guess the question refers to a mathematically perfect half glass summoned from the ether that has neither been filled or emptied.
But, it doesn't matter, because it's HALF A GLASS.


» sardine-in-a-can on September 18th, 2010, 5:37pm

Thats exactly what my response always is too.


» LinkMcCloud on September 18th, 2010, 2:07pm

With all the saggy pants, flat brimmed hats, confederate flags, swastika waving, and all around stupidity humanity has to offer, we don't own top spot. Especially with how often we get eaten by 'lesser' species.
Anyway, I don't think I'll vote this time. I'm a realist. It doesn't matter if the glass is half full or empty. YOU HAVE HALF A GLASS.


» LinkMcCloud on September 18th, 2010, 2:12pm

Also, "Why's the rum always gone?"


» kawaiiairbender on September 18th, 2010, 3:02pm

lol at saggy pants and flat brimmed hats being part of the downfall of humanity

Well germs no matter what we do to them they still survive, living on/of us. Germs are the highest beings deserve the top.


» death13a on September 18th, 2010, 2:17pm

PS. Go pessimism even trough you have no hope of winning you still need to show what you are made of. 0_0


» Toto on September 18th, 2010, 2:18pm

The problem was with the question itself... there is no such thing as a food chain... 'tis a food web my friend that we are just a member within, which is eaten by lions and tigers and bears..... and sharks.... can never forget the sharks.


» credomane on September 20th, 2010, 11:31am

That's why I voted "were we ever at the top"
the food chain isn't so much of a chain as a food web.


» ichigo_daisuki on September 18th, 2010, 2:20pm

I'm the majority that believes in a higher existence - nature.


» XReader on September 18th, 2010, 2:23pm

For all the science out there, "the glass is twice as big as it needs to be."


» XReader on September 18th, 2010, 2:24pm

... the science "nerds"..., :- )


» ebisu on September 18th, 2010, 4:34pm

Half Full or half empty of what?
I'd see the glass full of water and air. If it is not a glass in the vacuum. But then it'd be full of water and nothing.
I suppose it is a optimistic-pessimistic question then.


» Artimidorus on September 18th, 2010, 5:41pm

Depends, if someone is filling it and stops, half full. I drink half of it and stop, half empty. ^_^
Also, my glasses are very rarely at halfway, if there is water in my glass, it is only there until I have a free second to drink it all down. I tend to drink enough water that my table gets a pitcher of it at restaurants, and at hom eI tend to drink 3-4 gallons of water a day. Hmmm, water. <runs off to get another glass>


» brutelord on September 18th, 2010, 8:22pm

If it was drank down to that point; glass = half empty
If it was poured up to that point; glass = half full


» sweetnsour321 on September 18th, 2010, 8:37pm

ah, I wish there was a 'both' option on this poll...


» Enternalfir3 on September 18th, 2010, 9:08pm

Always full, there is air in it.


» Odinn on September 19th, 2010, 1:25am

very true the glass contains 50% water, ~40% nitrogen, ~20% oxygen, ~1% co2, ~0.3% noble gas like helium and argon; that composition is by volume.
by mass it's ~90% water


» Tvtim on September 18th, 2010, 11:03pm

If I see a glass at half I would just say 50% capacity, just to throw off those who would ask this age old question.


» RideTheWalrus on September 19th, 2010, 2:43am

I find it hilariously coincidental that 6666 people claim humans aren't at the top bigrazz

What are the chances, eh?


» MewMan on September 19th, 2010, 3:23am

I didn't notice none. Wow, it's interesting. Eh, what is the meaning of the last "6" after Satan's number?


» QuasarX on September 25th, 2010, 11:58am

Actually, those 6666 didn't claim humans aren't at the top, we just questioned whether humans were at the top. As for the odds of all the digits being the same, with 4 digits it's 0.1%, with 3 digits it's 1%, 2 digits 10%, etc. So, over all the site polls and with all the different vote counts, the odds of it never happening are much, much lower.


» forror on September 19th, 2010, 5:11am

half empty... does that make me a pessismist?

i automatically assume that if you were to fill up a glass, then fill it right the way up. why would you do things half way? thus, the thought of it being half full rarely occurs to me.


» brokendeity on September 19th, 2010, 6:31am

Glass of water is...

There should have been a third option. Both.


» Ferozban on September 19th, 2010, 2:10pm

the devil made you say this!!!!
guess he is really on top of us all. and that 6 times!

really the perfect number to stop this poll. very ironically.

PS: i cant vote for the glass poll. even tho its a fun poll i use both expressions. depending if i am about to fill the glass or if i emtpy it. sad


» Showers on September 21st, 2010, 8:50pm

What glass?


» TheRandomChocolate on September 23rd, 2010, 9:51am

Neither... The glass is two times largers than the amount of water in it.
