This took some Deep Thought
How does one afford the incredible price of dinner at Milliways?
All you have to do is deposit one penny in a savings account in your own era, and when you arrive at the End of Time the operation of compound interest means that the fabulous cost of your meal has been paid for.
This, many claim, is not merely impossible but clearly insane, which is why the advertising executives of the star system of Bastablon came up with this slogan: ''If you've done six impossible things this morning, why not round it off with breakfast at Milliways, the Restaurant at the End of the Universe?''
While I have no reason to doubt the existence of the star system of Bastablon, I suspect its advertising executives are purely fictional unlike this.
