My Cup is Overflowing...

There are three measuring cups on a table with volumes of 1-cup, 1/2-cup, and 1/4-cup. There is also a 4-cup mixing bowl that is completely empty and leak proof.

Water is poured into the cups, and they are all filled to the brim.

All three measuring cups are then emptied into the large mixing bowl, without spilling a drop.

The mixing bowl, however, now only has less than a cup of water in it. How is this possible?
