No it would be more than half empty, or less than half full.
7. It's holding about half the amount of water that is physically possible for it to hold.

You're all wrong. The glass is an upside down frustum of a coneso the volume of the water in the glass is less than the volume of the air in the glass.

10. glass half empty.
11. It's not half anything. It's less than half full or more than half empty. You guys are kinda dumb aha
12. neither, firstly, i'd say 50% capacity (i like to feel smarter than i actually am, in reality i'm crap at everything i do :s) secondly the glass is a cone shape, therefore while in one dimension the water has reached half of the height of the glass, in 3D the volume is less than half.

I must say it did take me a minute to understand that, luckily i recently did a mini maths course thing that covered conics.
13. OP is an idiot who chose the wrong picture to illustrate his point.
14. Its full... With water + air
