Day 21 of Pewvember: Every Millitraxipedian military parade culminates with one of their tiny drummers beating a tattoo prior to the ceremonial firing of the absolutely adorable MTP-IV Self Propelled Laser Cannon, which is all of thirty-four millimeters long.

I finally got hit by a behavioral change in python3; in this case, a tweak to how StopIteration is handled:
