[pydotorg-www] Looking for good textcha ideas (was: Python Wiki Spam)

In order to protect our wikis against excessive spam, we are using
textchas (short questions and answers) which users have to answer
before they can commit their changes or sign up to the sites.

I found that short Python snippet work well, since they require
domain knowledge that you cannot simply look up in Wikipedia, e.g.
"l = [1,2,3]; del l[1]; l[0] ==".

Would be great if you could send me some more ideas for such
textchas (please don't post the answers to this list; just
posting the questions is fine).

PS: Please make sure that the questions work in both
Python 2 and 3 and produce the same or at least similar
