From clever to invisible

The BBC maps out the Five Stages of Drunkenness.

I rather suspect blogging is a consequence of Stage 1. This is 'Feeling Clever', and is described thus:
This is when you suddenly become an expert on every subject in the known universe. You know you know everything and you want to pass on your knowledge to anyone who will listen. At this stage you are always right, and, of course, the person you are talking to is very wrong.
Sounds wearily familar, no? I don't consume alcohol too often, and have certainly never blogged while drunk, so I can only conclude that my parents were at Stage 1 when they conceived me, thus making it my permanent condition. Just why do you tolerate me?
