I hate replying to my own but I wanted to insert this before anyone goes wtf? 
on me.

I'm reading the website once again and it looks like they finally got some 
better documenters... the examples are MUCH! more readable now.

before it was a bunch of
square = square*square  while square < 1000
which is why I said I had to read it backwards.

wouldn't suprise me if they had a:
square += 1 if square > 0 while square < 50
that was a year or more ago.

and I guess I'm not far enough in the document to find the other weird things 
they had before under "simple"

Do they really expect you to use a special character like "ยป" or am I reading 
that wrong??
