Future As Fart Joke

After a quarter century of futurological criticism I can say with some confidence that The Singularity is an asshole.

More Futurological Brickbats here.

> The Singularity is an asshole.

During the course of a recent email interchange, I was
called an "ass-whole" [sic, including the hyphen].

Of course I immediately thought of a rejoinder along
the lines of "I'd rather be an ass-whole than half-assed
like you," but as it was a business discussion, I just
ignored the insult altogether.

Anyway -- assholes, black holes, it's all entertainment!
