Clarification on Immutability please

Oh dear, I am sorry. I have created quite a storm.

Moreover, I am sorry because I misremembered what I had typed into Idle. My
original tuple only had two elements, not three, so the slicing [:2] didn't
affect the tuple at all - and so the second id() gave the same address as
the first one.

So, yes, I am stupid - or just having senior moments (I am 65, after all).
