You compare instances of the type 'object'. They both have one value:

>>> object()
<object object at 0xb7ddb438>
>>> object()
<object object at 0xb7ddb440>

So the claim "type 'object' has only one value" is true. It's just not
the same value for all instances.

The problem with the world is stupidity. Not saying there should be a
capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the
safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?
