    So... do one-time challenges carry fewer points than daily challenges? Or do you collect those points all at once? If anyone knows offhand, let me know!

    There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.

    There is another theory which states that this has already happened.
