    I think I hear/read this joke on average about 20 times a day in the press. Then even its philosophy is gone.

    Half full or half empty? It doesn’t matter. Just as long as it’s never empty.

    There’s a difference in the way they’re served.

    Half full: waiter takes glass and pours wine into it until it’s half full then serves it

    Half empty: waiter takes glass and pours wine into it until it is full, drinks half of the wine then serves it. yum – backwash!

    I know a guy with a master in philosophy…he said “Yes. And I know nothing, but I Know that I know nothing.”

    I think there is a parallel to he 2 questions. "May I help you? "Versus “what do you want?”

    The former being more open to possibilities.The latter is more confined comparatively.

    As people tend to prefer the former version of the question, it should naturally follow that, in order to be open to the possibilities, the focus should be on the empty space. And not the wine.

    I.e. I prefer it to be half empty.

    The idea of pessimist versus optimist is faulty. Do you need to finish what’s in the glass (like before a medical scan & you HATE the stuff, or is it a cold drink on a hot day. I read a quote some place "are you pouring or drinking?).

    Well, that is probably one of the best uses of a Philosophy degree I can think of. I have a history degree. I would have to ask if the customer had a preference in the age of the wine. Millennial, Pepsi, Boomer or earlier.

    Sadly, so many university degrees don’t lead into any sort of viable career. At least he’s not working at a fast food joint. Hey, maybe he could go to a trade school.

    I thought those people with advanced Philosophy degrees became taxi drivers and barbers, while English and Psychology majors became bartenders.

    The blue-collar person says “I can make that work.”

    The engineer says “I wonder how that works”

    The physicist says “I wonder why that works”

    The philosopher says “Do you want fries with that?”
