Right. There's no set amount of time or number of calls that change the 
result, it just changes whenever another command or function sets it. 
That can be in the next line or twenty lines down the script, though 
since a lot of things reset the result, it's usually sooner than later. 
In general, it happens when it's the most inconvenient.
