Is the glass half full or half empty?

There’s a glass on the table. 50% of its total volume is filled with water. Is this glass half-full or half-empty?

I think: If water is still being added to the glass, it’s half full. Otherwise, the process of damping will make sure the water content in the glass will decrease, thus be half empty.The question has, in my opinion, hereby lost its philosophical use, as it’s completely solvable if you just consider the laws of physics.
