This Dustinland comic was not inspired by any one particular person or event (wouldn’t it be ironic if one of my friends got mad at me because of this?), but rather by a conversation where someone educated me about the phenomena of fundamental attribution error. Now I try to keep it in mind whenever I get offended or irritated. Basically you’re just giving someone the benefit of the doubt. It’s very David Foster Wallace, really.
