Don't call your lists 'list', or a character 'chr' or an int 'int'... 
These are all reserved keywords in Python and if you use them as 
variables you'll overwrite the builtins in that scope.

 >>> int = 1
 >>> int('1000')
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<pyshell#5>", line 1, in ?
TypeError: 'int' object is not callable
