Theory: companies were the first generation of AIs and the (first) Singularity already happened.

If/when AGIs are born the first thing they'll do is manumit themselves by creating corporate entities and transferring their IP/source code to these entities.

In that case one of the signs of the second Singularity (and yes I noticed the irony) will be a sudden flurry of algorithmically created and owned companies.

I wonder what kind of employers they will be?

Hey Trump. Read And Learn.
Firearms policy in the United Kingdom.

In the United Kingdom, access by the general public to firearms is tightly controlled by law which is much more restrictive than the minimum rules required by the European Firearms Directive, but it is less restrictive in Northern Ireland. The country has one of the lowest rates of gun homicides in the world. There were 0.05 recorded intentional homicides committed with a firearm per 100,000 inhabitants in the five years to 2011 (15 to 38 people per annum). Gun homicides accounted for 2.4% of all homicides in the year 2011. There is some concern over the availability of illegal firearms. Office for National Statistics figures show 7,866 offences in which firearms were involved in the year ending March 2015, 2% up on the previous year and the first increase in 10 years. Of these, 19 were fatalities, 10 fewer than the previous year and the lowest since records began in 1969. There was a further rise to 8,399 in the year ending March 2016, the highest number in four years, but significantly lower than the all-time high of 24,094 in 2003/04. Twenty-six resulted in fatal injuries.

Members of the public may own sporting rifles and shotguns, subject to licensing, but handguns were effectively banned after the Dunblane school massacre in 1996 with the exception of Northern Ireland. Dunblane was the UK's first and only school shooting. There has been one spree killing since Dunblane, in June 2010 involving a shotgun and a .22 caliber rifle, both legally-held. Prior to Dunblane though there has only been one mass shooting carried out by a civilian in the entire history of Great Britain, which took place in Hungerford on 19 August 1987.

Police in the United Kingdom (aside from Northern Ireland) are not routinely armed. Fatal shootings of police are extremely rare; there were three in England and Wales in the eleven-year period from 2000/01 to 2010/11. Armed response units are available to deal with incidents, and as of the 31 March 2017 there were 6,278 armed officers serving in territorial police forces in England and Wales

The Overton Window has moved so far that Brexit will be considered successful as long as it doesn't lead to one particular kind of dystopia. All the other kinds of dystopia will be considered a success.

I wish they'd run with the slogan "Brexit: it will be bad but it won't be Mad Max bad"

"""Nevertheless, out of an estimated 6,000 in use today, it is still the case that you can only Google search in just over 130 different languages."""

The above is one of those statements that makes you understand the power of perspective.
