Someone who looks at the world without the blindfold of modern day society. Cynics look at the world like a critic, always judging it. They aren't afraid to speak their minds and give the facts without embelishing them.
Caitlin(non-cynic): Aw, I wish they had a cure for cancer so that poor little boy wouldn't have to die!
Andrew(cynic): We're all slowly dying, why try to prolong the inevitable?

John(non-cynic): Damn it! Why does the sun have to be so bright? I hate it when it gets in my eyes!
Matt(cynic): In a million years, the sun is going to expand and roast the Earth, turning it into a burning lump of rock, so just be glad.

Bob(non-cynic): Jeez, Paris Hilton is sooo damn SEXY!
David(cynic): She's a spoiled, lazy, stupid, ditzy waste of space. She's not even good at anything. She's just famous because her dad owns some hotel that we never even hear about. Plus, she has no boobs.
