Hehe! That is just what I find. The more I say something with conviction 
the more like nonsense it seems to me - and the sooner I drop it.  There 
is no surer way to defeat me in an argument  than to agree with me until 
my conviction increases so much that I become aware of my own stupidity. 
Am I right, or not?
