Suppose "halfway" is Mark's nickname... full to the 'halfway mark' would be
regarded as full to him by definition. :)
With a low, wide glass filled to half volume on a level table that is then
tilted so the fluid level reaches the lower edge of the glass could now be
regarded as full because additional liquid would spill.
If a job is done poorly it is referred to as "half-assed." If the job is
done well, should it be called "full-assed" or "no-assed"?
