Python's phenotype

Phenotype: any observable characteristic or trait of an organism: such as its morphology, development, biochemical or physiological properties, or behavior.

>>> type('aaa') 
<type 'str'> 
>>> type('aaa') == type('a') 
>>> type(type('aaa') == type('a')) 
<type 'bool'> 
>>> type(type(type('aaa') == type('a'))) 
<type 'type'> 
>>> type(type(type(type('aaa') == type('a')))) 
<type 'type'> 
>>> type(type(type(type(type('aaa') == type('a'))))) 
<type 'type'>

If you don’t know what’s going on, I’ve just been fooling around with python's type system and IDLE
