To think that by now ... This came out of left field!

This is a perfect example of vocabulary/explanation that should be given ahead of time -- I'll bet that way more than 90% got this wrong! If you do not speak French fluently, you would never think of expressing "To think that by now" is expressed as "Dire qu'à l'heure qu'il est"! Help us be better students by explaining expressions such as this!
