your welcome Heidi ;D

I'm a glass half full kinda guy...

Frank:  I hate to be pedantic, (That's a lie, I bloody well revel in it.), but there is no such thing as a half full glass.  Or an empty one for that matter.  The so-called empty glass is full of air.  Positively brimming.   Unless of course it is located in the vacuum of Outer Space, where, if you were accompanying it without the benefit of a space suit, you might be somewhat less than happy.

weeel? actually Gyp, if youre in a vacuumn, lets assume yer in a spacesuit and everthins ok, suit is sealed, the air is workin fine, youve had a pee, even with an empty glass, the glass itself has mass therefore it would still be full, of atoms. discuss.........
Fare thee well Skip. We're all 'Keening' now. xbx

The glass is outside the spacesuit, in your hand, in a vacuum.   Full of atoms of what?  Dark matter?  There was no dark matter when I was at school.  No bloody quarks either.  And the Higgs-Boson particle wasn't even a twinkle in some rapidly gyrating little atom's ball-bag ;-)

It's good to laugh at yourself once in a while - why let everyone else have all the fun!

I actually have something to add to this thread today.

This afternoon my 1pm class encountered an unusual situation.  Allow me to preface by saying that this class is A) either the student's last class of the day, or B) the first class of their day. In either case, they arrive tired, ready to go already, and a little less than happy to be there.

One of my students started telling some stories about her new job, which of course led to other stories by other students, and the next thing you know we were all uncontrollably laughing.....loudly. Except for a couple youngins up front that didn't seem to see the humor in the conversation, I suspect because they haven't yet lived a good life.

I was laughing so hard right along with them that I forgot there is a "fake" wall between our room and the room next door. The instructor from the other room came in and basically told us that our noise could not be so loud as to penetrate the walls. Apparently he had real work to accomplish with his students.

Now I will apologize to the jake, but what was even more funny to me was that HE was laughing as he came in to scold us. That, my friends, is the value of contagious laughter!  ;D
