So I have
hobbies =  for i in range(3): hobby = raw_input("Gimme hobby: ") hobbies.append(hobby) print hobbies
And if I put in, say,
Gimme hobby: cooking Gimme hobby: shopping Gimme hobby: fishing
[u'cooking', u'shopping', u'fishing']
But I didn’t put the u or the quotes there. Is something happening behind the scenes I am not aware of?
