as list indices go [start:end:step] what this means is the whole list
starting from the end and working backwards.
You can also have a look at reversed() if you want an iterator or you
can use theList.reverse() if you want to reverse in place ie.
>>> l = ["21 trewuuioi","3zxc","134445"]
>>> print l
['134445', '3zxc', '21 trewuuioi']
