The outer loop never reaches 1, so we can get rid of it along with the
second if statement, the additions aren't needed either. 

So what you have left is this.

for foo in range(3):
    pass
print "Let's see"      
print foo 

Which is the same as:

print "let's see\n", foo


I know that isn't the point. Just couldn't resist. ;)
