    That part was given. Students just have to code below ''your code begins here''. You just need a one random word each time you play Hangman.

    when you run it, it works? well, load_words is not working, you need to fix it before the game will work. it only loads the first word in the file.

    load_works was written by the TA's as it was give with the problem handout. When I run load_words I get 55900 words.

    So does the code work? Except the remove character solution (yours is simpler), do you have any comments on sections that could be improved?

    the enumerate() function is convenient when you need to iterate over the items and the indices of a sequence - http://dpaste.com/776981/

    I was looking at format_word() when i thought of that.

    i like to use lists because they have lots of useful methods. I might have kept the word as a list of characters and worked with that instead of slices. For some reason, i never think about using slices.

    Using lists instead of slices really seems a great idea. It's way more easy to work with lists than with strings. Thanks for the tip.

    i'm thinking though (and remembering) that slices can be very powerful - i need to start remembering to consider them as an option.
