Well, you have me there somewhat. I am certainly bordering on being an intellectual and the only quotation I know about intellectuals isLessy, I'm sure you don't see doom and gloom in everything, my guess is that you mostly see a way to create an argument from almost anything.
"An intellectual is a man who takes more words than necessary to tell you more than he knows." —Dwight D. Eisenhower.
Just accept that I like to talk about matters of importance and have enough knowledge and education to actually understand them at a level above the average.. Who else would participate in public debates on the side of facts and responsible action? The denialists and village idiots?
But no. And this is not argumentative. The only response to your 'Life is good' and 'Don't worry, Be Happy' crap is to show how you are wrong about the 'coming rhapture'. If you find that brings you down, you should reduce your drug habit..
