Addendum

I got thinking about cynicism. Which got me thinking of Beavis and Butt-Head.

Beavis and Butt-Head try to be cynical. They do so each time they don't like a music video or some event they witness and reply "This sucks." But...notice that when they do like, or really like, something, they get so much more engaged, going "Yes!" and "This is the most amazing thing I have ever seen" and maybe they even dance.

I know. Beavis and Butt-Head are not role models. They're not even human. But I can be like them in that particular way. I LIKE LIKING THINGS.
