comment Does SNAP have the lowest rate of fraud of any federal program in the US?
Having worked for NASA, I'd say probably a huge portion of the budget goes to wasted/faked/by-the-letter-not-by-the-spirit excess. This is why SpaceX can undercut all the existing companies by such a wide margin. The existing companies abuse loopholes in contracting culture to take the maximal amount of money for the least return and the bare minimum success. It may not be illegal, but if we are talking about what is "right" rather than what is illegal, any government agency forced into contracting culture leaks like a sieve. Military is the same way.

Oh man, I'm using this chart the next time someone tells me that their eye-witnesses to alien abduction or other-such are reliable.

Your remaining rows appear outside the table because you closed the table inside the loop.

comment Does one hamburger take more water to produce than 2 months worth of showering?
It might be a bit silly, but you should probably go into similar metrics about showering. Showering is probably at least as problematic a metric to determine.

comment Why do the Borg not focus on assimilating The Doctor's mobile emitter?
The whole idea of a Borg sacrificing itself for others is totally anathema to what the Borg are as an entity. The Borg, as macro-organism, would be absorbing the ability to make that choice. The choice to sacrifice itself for the well-being of others. That is, it would mean the end of assimilating people.

comment Why do the Borg not focus on assimilating The Doctor's mobile emitter?
He wasn't wrong. If he had not sacrificed himself he wouldn't have shown them that he was willing to do that. It is that sacrifice that I am talking about. That is what changed.

They didn't know that One was so different until the climax of the episode. It was One's actions that showed the Borg what he had become. When first contacted, One wasn't yet changed. So they were in error at first, and only in the end were they able to understand that.

comment Looking for a book featuring a soldier/marine travelling to a different time/universe
Do you remember anything about the structure of the book? Was it a thick book or thin, what was the cover of the book like, did it feature any colors you remember. Can you remember any fragments of text from the book that stuck out to you?

comment PHP Write HTML Table Row to Webpage
@Nordenheim Kurt is trying to send data early with flush() so that the table will show up bit by bit rather than all in one chunk after the processing is complete. This is desirable if you have an extremely long table as it gives the user some of the data without having to wait for all of it to render.
