Interesting python stuff

Interesting python stuff i found messing around with it

1 hash function is random for non non-primitive objects, and it's seed is reset each time the interpreter is ran

Example: python -c "print(hash('hello world'))" generates random numbers, while python -c "print(hash(4.2))" always returns a constant value

2 list.extend method updates itself each time the iterator is called

This code will run forever ( and eat all your RAM ): python -c "l = [1]; l.extend(i+1 for i in l)"

While this one won't python -c "l = [1]; l.extend([i+1 for i in l])"
