[Tutor] All possible 16 character alphanumeric strings?

possible = "234567abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz"
word_length = 16
print 'Running "every.py"'
word_list = []
def add_word(word):
    if len(word)==word_length:
        print word
        for c in possible:
            new_word = word + c

The only problem with this code is that it actually takes a word as its
input and just checks that it is == word length. If not it just appends the
string possible to the variable word that was called in the function

I need to be able to generate every possible combination of the characters
in the variable possible, ideally coming up with a string that resembles
the TOR hidden network strings that look like this: "kpvz7ki2v5agwt35.onion"
