I know this is going to be something simple, but the following code (with raw input being 'crush', 'kill', 'destroy') produces the output [u'crush', u'kill', u'destroy'] in the viewer.
hobbies = 
for hobby in range(3):
hobbies.append(raw_input("What's your hobby?"))
Where are these u's coming from because I'm beyond confused.
Interestingly enough when I use str() on the raw input the u's disappear, though I thought raw input was a string automatically
