Is it pointless to have the lines:

```
else:
return x #where x is any result
```

instead of:

```
return x
```

to end a function? Is there any difference since everything that would reach `return x`

would fall under an implied “`else`

” anyway, right?

For example:

```
def isPositiveNumber(n):
if n > 0:
return True
else:
return False
```

vs.

```
def isPositiveNumber(n):
if n > 0:
return True
return False
```

P.S. (Not the original idea, but I just realized that this might work with anything–not just return–so the title is a misnomer. Sorry.)
