Glad you guys are enjoying this. We're getting off-topic and I think my 
point is being lost to jest.

As humans, we know very little. But one of the basics of our knowledge 
is order or sequence. 1,2,3,4 is natural so is 4,3,2,1 (count down to 
blast off for example). When we put our shirt on inside-out or watch 
someone moon walk (Micheal Jackson) it's immediately obvious and easy to 
see that the sequence is reversed. Backwards is pure, simple and easy. 
This is not so in Python and it should be.

That's all I have to day about that.
