Scientists at Macquarie University claim to have answered one of life's ultimate questions.
The team of seventeen theoretical and particle physicists has been studying whether the glass is half full or the glass is half empty.
After three years of intense study they have come to the conclusion that the glass is simply too big for the amount of liquid it is required to contain.
Dr Paul Lyon, who led the "Half full" faction, was excited by the discovery despite it contradicting his hypothesis. "Yeah, it's just great for science and great for mankind to finally know the answer."
His colleague and member of the "Half Empty" faction, Dr Jean Saunders, was less enthusiastic. "Yes, it's a discovery, but is it the right discovery? I just can't help feeling that we've asked the wrong question or somehow missed something, I just don't like it."
