I hate to tell you this, but "%6s" in C does NOT print 6 strings. It
prints 1 string, right justified, in no less that 6 characters.
C is just like Python in this example.

Write a small loop to iterate over the strings. Print a tab before each
string except the first.

You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail
in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this?
And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive
them there. The only difference is that there is no cat.
- Albert Einstein, when asked to describe radio
