The singularity will most likely occur within our lifetimes. It won't necessarily be hostile. It may decide to shepherd us like Colossus did, but I think that is needed right now.

1) Why are those two guys carrying a broken lawnmower throught the forest?
2) Why did they leave it running?
3) Don't they know to lift with their legs, not their backs?
4) Who kicks a running lawnmower being carried by two guys in tights through the forest?
