Well, in Python the assignment 
operation = of a variable named y 
in the LHS to the object of the RHS
result is more complicated 
than = in those register basd 
low level languages designed for 
fast execution speeds in compiled 
machine codes without an auto GC 
bundled with the interpreter 
in the run time.
