Its like that Russian joke:

Pessimist: Things cant get any worse.
Optimist: oh yes they can!

I think I have bad karma; so not an optimist...

or maybe like the Grinch I have a heart that's a couple of sizes too small...

.but as a scientist once remarked

"The question of a glass half full or half empty can be recalibrated by using a 50% smaller glass."

I find that they cynics answer, but then the glass would be full and definitely not empty Cool
