1.) I mean. I almost always find “you should use a linter and then you can avoid learning” to be an unhelpful piece of advice. Also, a linter’s not going to tell you why a nested array is behaving unexpectedly.
2) And true. Python can definitely get a little weird around the edges when you get to arbitrarily large numbers. I hope you’re not hardcoding and checking for identity for integers like this in your code.

You clearly understand references very well! These short examples are, of course, aimed at introducing a concept and encouraging people to learn more. Thanks for providing some trivia!
