Re: What Python looks like

To paraphrase this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zJOS0sV2a24)
(which is the Randall Munroe, author of the famous xkcd
(http://www.xkcd.com/), giving a talk at Google), "you just type the
pseudo-code and it runs! And as someone said, if Python is executable
pseudo-code, then Perl is executable line noise." That quote (and the
"import antigravity" comic) were my first exposure to Python and then
when I actually began to use it, I found it to be quite true.
