**Note:** Objects with different values may also have same hash (known as hash collision).
* When the statement `some_dict[5] = "Python"` is executed, the existing value "JavaScript" is overwritten with "Python" because Python recongnizes `5` and `5.0` as the same keys of the dictionary `some_dict`.

* `join()` is a string operation instead of list operation. (sort of counter-intuitive at first usage)
**💡 Explanation:**
If `join()` is a method on a string then it can operate on any iterable (list, tuple, iterators). If it were a method on a list, it'd have to be implemented separately by every type. Also, it doesn't make much sense to put a string-specific method on a generic `list` object API.
