1. These charity adverts are a great way to fleece you for all your money. Those dudes living in mud was probably 50 years ago. They have schools now. And a sewerage treatment place.

2. Disneyland is great but I'm not waiting 2 hours to see ''sleeping beauty''. She's either made of plastic or some lazy cow who's paid to sleep in all day. Besides, one floor is hardly impressive for a castle.

The above are cynical examples.

Apparently someone who doesn't wish to be disappointed. But if they see the worst in everything, how can they be pleasently suprised? I don't get cynicism. My 'cynical' friend said she doesn't believe in love. But if you are that adamant something doesn't exist, then you'll never find it! Life is about romance and excitement, and it's all there if you keep your chin up and seek it. I know bad things happen, but they happen to everyone. When you allow yourself to dwell on them, this is when you become a cynic.
"I don't belive in love"
"You are so cynical... Cheer up!!!"
