Thank you Python community!

Hi Ben,

Thank you for your reply.

I would like to make such an experimental research/investigation on the 
effects of Python software programming on opioid addiction. :-)

Probably studying the learning of Python in people with cocaine and 
heroin addiction would be significant and interesting.

Kind regards,
