    It wasn't that long ago that people had actually figured it out and knew, within a few days, what they all meant. In fact, I actually had to refer to it myself before making any kind of "soon" statement.

    You need personalized plates- "Soon"

    I just thought of something, this should be put on a shirt. Be neat if you could find a cheap place to make a few of these & offer them in extra life

    Sapience never did respond to my query about where "Sooner-or-Later" or "Sooner-than-Later" fit into it all. In fact, I still don't see this phrase listed. :/

    Just remember that "Sooner-or-Later" is a much longer time than sooner-or-later. It's probably like Schrodinger's Cat. Whatever feature you are waiting for both exists and doesn't exist at the same time until a blue name gives a definite answer...which we know never happens.

    You actually just described "It's On Schedule"
    "Schedule Time has the amazing ability to exist, not exist, and potentially exist or not exist all at the same instant. It is only the act of observing The Schedule that forces it into a fixed state in which the normal rules of Sapience Time apply."

    Sooner Rather Than Later would probably describe a moment any time before the end of the universe, as long as it is before that. If it were possible for the devs to find homage in the Restaurant at the End of the Universe, then perhaps Sooner Rather Than Later would be infinite. Therefore, the Sooner it is planned, the Later it will arrive.

    The answer is 42 anyway. And thanks for the fish.
    Do not trouble trouble until trouble troubles you.
    Easca could manipulate a bull through a mousehole and still make it think it did it all by itself.

    *ponders this for a moment* That's logical. You're welcome for the fish. Would you care for some tartar sauce to go with them? Or a wedge of lemon (de-seeded, of course)?

    Ooh, a wedge of lemon sounds good. Also, let's sprinkle it with the ashes of the death of English cricket just to perfectionize it.

    I wonder what Sapience's answer to Life, the Universe and Everything would be?
