def copy( variable ):
    return variable

Decade old code, used in 2 places to "copy" a float and a string. No one wants to touch the working code.

for data1, data2 in zip(results, results[1:]):
    assert data1 <= data1
    if data1 == data1:
        assert data1 >= data1

A nice loop for making sure that data1 is equal to data1!

Ok, I have a weird array of objects as output of itertools and I need an array of strings... 1 - Convert the array to string 2 - Clean it up with regex and replace 3 - Convert the string to array 4 - Problem solved
