Did you remember to tell your girlfriend that a critical property of 
the "??? for i in range(4)" construct is that it generates one value per 
loop? It loops four times, so it generates exactly four values (in this 
case, each value is a bracketed term).

It loops four times, so it must generate four values. What's the star 
supposed to do? Turn four loops into twelve?
