I usually write 1 + 2 and func(a, b). Sometimes I even use more spaces
to align stuff:

    foo    = 'bar'
    foobar = 42
    azimov = 3

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?
