    An improved version of AlphaGo, playing as Master(P), recently beat 60 top pros in a row in rapid go. The top humans may well need a handicap to have a chance now.

    2. In Australia, the people vote to allow gay marriage.
    The Left: the minority should shut up and let the majority have its way.
