Personally, I think it doesn't matter. In the near future, the glass will likely be empty. Glasses tend to be empty most of the time. It is also highly probably that in the not-so-distant future, the glass will break, and be left to decompose. If it does miraculously survive to the distant future, it is likely that as the sun grows hotter and phase-shifts into a red giant, the earths surface will no longer contain liquid water and the glass itself will cease to have purpose.

Quick measurement (using MS Paint! Yeah! :D) tells me the glass is just short of half-full, so could be just over half-empty. But, as the glass doesn't contain bacon, may as well be called empty. :mrgreen:

neither, it's half full of water, and half full of air, so it's completely full.

The real question is why you should be asking someone took an upside down picture of that glass of water from their ceiling.
