You cannot hurt your machine by giving that a try.

This is a general comment for all beginners.  Before posting, open the 
interactive interpreter (or IDLE) and try something(s).  If the result 
puzzles you, copy and paste into a post.  Or if more appropriate, open 
the Python manuals and search a bit, or try a search engine.
