comment Reading Order for Heinlein's "World as Myth" Books
@BenCrowell Spoilage is a means to an end here. I did not desire a reading order for a first read - I wanted a reading order that puts everything in the order in which they happen in the books and avoiding spoilers pushes an order into that direction. There is still room for a better answer here if you want to create your preferred order and justify it. Currently the best answer is a list in no order - which isn't exactly what is wanted.

Keep watching. It comes up a few times, especially towards the end of season 2

comment PHP - Multiply two arrays but one is the quantity and one is the price
That's why this is a comment. It shouldn't go without saying.

comment PHP - Multiply two arrays but one is the quantity and one is the price
Prefect: A small security note, if you don't verify the price is correct and trust what the user sends back with the form, they'll be able to set their own prices. That's probably not what you want. So you'll probably want to change POST out for loading the prices from the database.

comment PHP - Multiply two arrays but one is the quantity and one is the price
(10 + 10) * (2 + 2) = 20 * 4 = 80 as expected. PEMDAS. Order of operations. What you want to do is loop over one array and multiply the price by the quantity and then add that to a total.

comment Are there approved drugs where it's unknown how they work?
None of what you responded with is evident in your answer, they are what I desire to be in the answer. Explaining why the gut would have anything to do with depression seems important to understanding why it is related.

comment Are there approved drugs where it's unknown how they work?
I don't think this answer satisfactorily answers the question. It dances around the answer but never arrives at it. To be complete, this should discuss why the goal of finding safe effective drugs doesn't need the pathway of effect to be known, and how many drugs today and historically have no known pathway or have disproved pathways of effect. I'd also excise the discussion of side effects, as it is unrelated to the question at hand. I'll be happy to reverse my -1 if corrected.

comment How to handle initiative when a new force joins a combat in progress
Surprise rounds could be seen as 6 seconds where the opposition is too stunned to act. But 6 seconds is a long time. I prefer to see them as a chance for one group to attack in unison, and I rp them that way. So in this case, they would all be attacking at once and mechanically they have to resolve it in some order.

comment How to handle initiative when a new force joins a combat in progress
If the whole group coming in wants to hide and sneak attack together, you can give them a surprise round in the middle of combat. Have them wait until the end of a round, add them in like in the answer, then move them forward and let them have one whole round to themselves that represents them joining the battle. (provided they succeed on not being spotted)
