I’m sure you’ve heard the old story referring to optimism and pessimism that is determined by whether you think the glass is half-empty or half-full. Here are the reactions when somebody leaves a half glass of milk next to the keyboard.
The glass is half full.
The glass is half empty.
You guys really oughta be drinking Perrier.
No thanks; I drink straight from the cow.
No thanks; I’m still breast-feeding.
Not enough market share to be Microsoft Milk.
What makes you think that’s milk?
National news media:
Hey, we wanted OJ!
We know what it really is.
Copy protection crazies:
Somebody drank half my milk and didn’t pay for it!
How come HIS glass is bigger than MINE?
Free Software Foundation:
That milk is the cow’s contribution to all mankind!
The milk’s in the wrong half of the glass.
Fuzzy logic guys:
I may or may not have drunk some part of that milk.
Rent the glass from us and we’ll fill it with something we know is good for you.
In a decent world, this glass would be filled to the brim and big enough for everyone to enjoy.
Thanks for getting your milk withholding correct this year.
Where’s my pump?
That stupid cat got into the milk again!
Where’d the rest of the milk go?

That glass is free; the next one you have to pay for.
