Commentary

Mostly harmless.

Hah, I say that and it makes it sound like I like Python. That can't be right. All languages are crap. I'm a language designer — why else would I be a language designer if it were not for the fact that all languages are crap?

But I am weary. I urge you to consider that Python may be pretty on the surface, but go on, scratch that surface. See what you find. Tell me if it's pretty. Go on, do it.

Here, I'll get you started.

>>> a = 200
>>> b = 200
>>> c = 300
>>> d = 300
>>> a is b
True
>>> c is d
False
>>> 300 is 300
True

But wait, there's more!

>>> True = 4
>>> True
4
>>> 4 == True
True
