Just completed pset7, gosh it was a long one, took a month!
Am curious as to why we need to have a  in front of the list to get the "pure" data?
For instance, when we get back a list while executing something like
list=db.execute("Select someData FROM table WHERE id=1")?
If i wanted to use if to use the "pure data" i'd need to assign it to another variable, like so:
why do i need the
 before it can work?
Is it because the list is an array? thus i need to get the array number,  and then "multiply" the dict?
