I've worked for several corporations that used Python and at -all- of
them the developers were not only aware of list comprehensions, they
used them regularly. Same with iterators. Not -one- of them found them
to be "computer sciency OOP jargons" but useful metaphors that made
their code more concise without sacrificing readability.

Not everything new is crap, y'know. Neither is everything that you
fail to understand the first time you're exposed to it.

I find it kinda funny that you constantly criticise "academic"
language development when it seems pretty clear from your posts that
you've never actually engaged in any practical application-focused
development in your life. But as they say: those that can do, those
that can't post godawful screeds to their much-hyped-on-usenet vanity
