It took me a while to get list comprehensions.  It's one of those things 
that suddenly snaps into place and you're suddenly comfortable with.

What took me the longest time is to realize that it's really a way of 
generating one list from another list.  Once I got that, I started 
naturally turning to list comprehensions whenever I found myself 
generating one list from another.
