Hey there,

For the few exercises I've been doing, I think the author has been
attempting to make the reader do things 'the difficult way' so that
the reader understands how things work. Hopefully the next few
chapters will introduce me to doing things the easier way lol :-D

random.shuffle is cool though. I'm really impressed on the sheer
volume of functions that Python provides to make a programmer's life
