Why do you have an infinite loop without a programmatic method of
escape?

Because we are programmers, not God, and cannot foresee everything.
Sometimes we try out a loop only to see if it is infinite or not, sometimes
we try out a loop to find out other things, and find it is infinite even
though we were not looking for it. So, if you can answer the question,
please do so. Being stuck in an infinite loop myself, I am very interested.

Perhaps not very good ones, at that.

not God,
Very funny.

You should at least be able to see that you may need a way out of an
infinite loop, especially when debugging.

Sometimes we try out a loop only to see if it is infinite or not, sometimes
we try out a loop to find out other things, and find it is infinite even
though we were not looking for it. So, if you can answer the question,

A truly remarkable paragraph.
