Kathryn Schulz: On being wrong | Video on TED.com.

I watched the video of this TED talk on Saturday and I’ve been thinking about it ever since. The whole thing is really worth watching and it’s only 18 minutes. The part that really kept coming back to me was a comment she attributes to Ira Glass from an interview she did with him. He says that the staff of the show jokes that the “crypto theme” of all This American Life episodes is “I thought this one thing was gonna happen and something else happened instead”.

What struck me as soon as I heard those words is that this is pretty much life in a nutshell.
