People who see life in the best possible light, or at least as being generally good. The most horrible, obnoxious people in the world.
"The glass is half-full!"
"Get that god damn water out of my glass, asshole! Did it ever occur to you I might have left it empty for a REASON?! HUH?! GET OUT OF MY SIGHT, YOU WORTHLESS PIECE OF SHIT!!"
People who see the world through rose-colored glasses, people who are unrealistic, people who have no actual lives if they think the world is good. Ignorance is Bliss, after all
Optimist: Yay! We're being tortured!
Normal Person: That's not a good thing. I'm in pain, and you probably are, too.
