seriously

"I know someone who speaks, in his pathetic, ignorant, yet smug and condescending fashion, as if serious were the highest of accolades rather than the most banal of modifiers. As if to call academic work serious were to qualify it in some discernible fashion. He is a stupid man, a parasite only capable of feeding off the conversation with others without offering anything himself. I think of him as a soul wasted because of the hideous personality entrapping it. He venerates the emptiness of seriousness, I'm sure, because of his correct intuition that he lacks understanding, insight, and analytic acuity." (I cite | I want to be taken seriously)
