Ok, so list(x*2 for x in range(10)) actually means: list((x*2 for x in 
range(10)) --> so a generator is created and then the list function is 
called? Also, dealing with memory, [...] will be deleted when the 
reference will be no longer needed and with list(...)... well, I don't 
know? I'm new to python so sorry if this are nonsense.
