comment How common was smoking in first half of the 20th century?
And among socioeconomic class. The poor are far more likely to be smokers than are the wealthy or middle class.

comment I am trying to scrape some data and export it to a CSV
Yours is probably more correct than the other one, but I haven't really gotten a total grasp of promises and deferred objects, so for now I'll have to go with the other answer.

comment Can humans interact meaningfully with the economy when robots are better at everything?
You're going to have to elaborate. I have no idea what you're trying to say, and I have a passing familiarity with the concepts you're talking about (I wrote a paper about the Chinese Room & functional AI about half a decade ago).

Of course it will. You can have a machine be incredibly intelligent. That doesn't mean it will "want to be free" or "want to be in control" or whatever else that humans do. Humans want those things because they had a particular selection pressure on them and it's an evolved part of our brains. Robots will have no such feature. They will quite willingly love being slaves (if we, in fact, even program "love" into them). You also seem to assume they'll feel boredom like a human. They will not.

comment Trying to remove links from variable
This was almost right. One minor change and I will accept the answer: $(item).find("a").contents().unwrap();
