No Daveh, we want to see you wearing that outfit Isa posted early on the WHO WOULD IT BE thread. Did you ck it out?

I've just had a look. It's not a thong or speedos so it comes within the dress guidelines i set out. I would have to drop the hat though - it is sooooooooooo last year!!!

The glass is what it is. From a purely scientific standpoint, the glass has X amount of liquid in it - half-full and half-empty are just constructs that we use to explain it.

I'm not just being glib in saying that, though I am often just glib.

No point in thinking about circumstances outside of your control and comparing them to how things could be in some hypothetical world. I'm 5 foot 9 and can't shoot a basketball. That's the way it is, no point in sitting around thinking about how my life would be if I was 6 foot 9 and had a wicked outside shot, cause it is not going to happen.

Worry about the things you can control and accept the things you can't control.

Greg, whose glass contains 10 oz. of liquid.

Yes, like those airport delays and such...that would teach you the virtue of patience and acceptance.

Well, Dave, no sense worrying about how much your glass holds when you're walking around in that flourescent, double-strapped - I was going to call it a banana-hamock but it's more like a bouncing-baby swing...

Uncontrollable fit of the giggles.
