just in case you dont know, there is this old saying, much like the 'which came first, the chicken or the egg?' saying, that says 'is a cup half empty, or half full?'.
well, this is my idea on it:
if the cup was completely empty, and its got water up to its middle mark but its still being filled, then its HALF FULL. because its in the process of being filled.
if the cup was completely full, and its got water up to its middle mark but is being emptied, then its HALF EMPTY. because its in the process of being emptied.
ive come to the realization that 'gentleman' is just another name for a sissy.
want to hear something horrible? i read in this here book that, in the middle ages, "primative, uneducated women of the poorer classes used all kinds of known and long-forgotten tricks, and deliberately suffered severe injury, to bear disfigured children who could be sold for substantial sums to carnival exhibitors".
