Sales of optimism

Regardless if you are half-full, half-empty or just half-baked, the witty Restoration Hardware Company is selling faux-European "Ottimista/Pessimista" drinking glasses with a bisecting white line that separates the optimists from the pessimists. A set of six is available for $24 at www.restorationhardware.com. Picture Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca, getting drunk at Rick’s, filling this glass an inch below the "Pessimista" line every time. If nothing else, these glasses will serve as handy visual aids for high school guidance counselors to use during positive thinking lectures. What grabs your attention?
