I'm a discrete mathematician. My main research interests are discrete optimization and scheduling in specific. I've been using LaTeX on and off since 2007, mostly for homework assignments. I have really gotten into it while writing my thesis though. Scheduling problems call for quite a lot of diagrams, so my main focus and interest within LaTeX is TikZ.

comment Put a leading space to a paragraph using texttt
I am unsure about what actually happens to the spaces, but putting a box around it does produce them. So \mbox{\texttt{~~Some~~thing}} should work as you expect it. Although the indentation will be larger, because, as Werner has already mentioned, the spaces are larger since texttt is monospaced.

comment Snippet Manager in TeXnicCenter
I don't use TeXnicCenter, so I can't really help you there. You could use something like Auto-Hotkey to set that up to work regardless of what editor you are using though.

comment Vertical space between horizontal lines
\\[x] doesn't work, it starts a new line after x. Even if x is explicit, the newline is not.

(cont.) This leads to a circular program, which won't halt as long as we assume latex is consistent, i.e. given the same input, the output is also the same.

comment Document requiring infinitely many compiler passes?
@FUZxxl, I'm not 100% sure, but I don't think that is relevant here. The halting problem is deciding whether or not a certain program ever halts given a certain input. If you provide latex with the tex file from my answer as input, we can observe that it halts. This gives rise to new input, the same tex file + the aux file produced. Which leads to a new aux file as output. This again becomes the input, etc. The aux file only has two states though, so we are only working with 2 distinct inputs (disregarding the initial run with no aux) which lead to eachother as output.

As a matter of fact, thats incorrect. The A also switches between Huge and small size. Change the capital A to a lowercase a in the else branch to see this a little more clearly.

The output is different each time, the A might have the same size, but it is not on the same page. The output switches between having 0 and 1 blank pages prior to the Huge A. I would not call that stable at all.

comment Superscripts before a letter in math
just a sidenote, you really should not be using $$ ... $$. These don't deal with vertical spacing in a consistent way, use \[ ... \] instead
