Although I think that Y2K will be a major catastrophe, I'd still be
willing to bet money against riots and civil disorder. How can you lose
a bet like that? I mean, I'm willing to bet any amount of money you
care to name that there won't be a Singularity by the year 2050, even
though I place it at 2025 or earlier...
