I found this while chatting on IRC about the implementation details of objects - specifically, since objects have a dict of attributes, and dict subclasses object, it seems like every dict will have another dict inside it. (Eventually someone explained that base object() doesn't have any state at all, as a result dict doesn't have a dict of attributes, and there is no cycle.)

Anyway, as I was trying to explain my question to the other users, I had intended to post this snippet and ask "why doesn't this crash python?" Ironically it turned out that it does crash python.
