  2. JK Rowling insisted on paying UK tax which moved her from billionaire to millionaire. She may well be back up again but I admire her ethics.

  5. Surely more than Australia though (a country equally massive, equally dependent on inward migration to prop up the economy). I recall hearing Aus water supply could only support 20mil and they’re at 25mil now with no signs of slowing.

  11. Having watched the progression of robotics in the Boston Dynamics videos, I have no doubt that given enough input data to learn from that AI will be able to negotiate these types of situations. The only question is when.
  12. States across American west see hottest summer on record as climate crisis rages California, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon and Utah faced historic heatwaves, which were made possible by human-caused global heating, a study found https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/sep/10/american-west-states-hottest-summer-climate-crisis

  14. Sure, but I’ve yet to see one house spawn 6 baby houses.
  15. Bizarrely in the current climate renting out a campervan is rather lucrative.
