Is it me or does the girl seem awfully disinterested?

uninterested and disinterested are two different words that mean different things.

The first definition is the correct one, at least IMO. For the second definition, uninterested is less ambiguous.

Quote:
Usage note Disinterested and uninterested share a confused and confusing history. Disinterested was originally used to mean “not interested, indifferent”; uninterested in its earliest use meant “impartial.” By various developmental twists, disinterested is now used in both senses. Uninterested is used mainly in the sense “not interested, indifferent.” It is occasionally used to mean “not having a personal or property interest.”

Now can we go back to the cute disinterested chick. She's got eyes as big as gumballs. Pretty gumball eyes.

Fully agreeing with drizek [uninterested/desinterested], I was wondering weather "You are not doing it properly" would not be more appropriate.

Never understood the appeal of anime, etc. I find it disturbing that people like it.

yeah but a synonym of disinterest is indifference. She is indifferent. Why can't she be disinterested?

"Disinterested" is perfectly appropriate and, in fact, slightly more correct than "uninterested".

See a cute, pretty girl in a video and what is the first thing that comes to mind? English grammar.
