Certain topics never (well, hardly ever) come up on this newsgroup. They are stupid questions, to which the answers are immediately obvious, but they would be more fun to talk about than these arcane details of loop control.

This article, which is posted once every decade, attempts to answer these questions definitively, succinctly, and in such a way as to discourage further discussion or comment.

You Have been Warned.
