You mean you haven't dealt with this subject yet...

But what I like about Pythons modulo solution is that I can use it to
right and left shift in lists or tuples, and I will link to the first
element when I right shift past the last element and link to the last
element when I left shift past the first element. In other words I can
consider the last as a chain where the last and the first element are
connected. This I find useful in surprisingly many situations.

It's uised for, what it's used for, until you know the full lower
level implementation/parsing of objects like immutables(tuples), and

Can you show some example code here?
