England 1, USA 1. A draw. It is more entertaining than some other things -- like 9 years of bad news and grim statistics into the Afghan War.
War is what happens when men want war.
When you dig into the earth,When man wants peace there will be peace.
Water springs forth,
And when the clouds clear,
All the sky is blue.
In the land of water and clouds
Is there anything but Zen?
- Mookam Choinul (1722-1795)
There seems to be a difficulty sorting through the wants we experience within. War? Peace? A large chocolate cookie ice cream bar?
...the Singularity University founders hold dear and often discuss with a techno-utopian bravado: the arrival of the Singularity — a time, possibly just a couple decades from now, when a superior intelligence will dominate and life will take on an altered form that we can’t predict or comprehend in our current, limited state.No need for the part about prolonging age and eliminating death. A short life with certain death would suffice if...if there was intelligence, creativity, and a felt kinship with all and each existing here.
At that point, the Singularity holds, human beings and machines will so effortlessly and elegantly merge that poor health, the ravages of old age and even death itself will all be things of the past.

England's Mr. Robert Green, as goalkeeper, let an easy keep get away from him in South Africa, allowing the Americans to score their goal. Many tsk tsk'd. I don't see the big deal.
Get on with the next game.
Right after we end war, that is.
