Harder Time Machine is Harder
I keep getting an error: Bummer: 'new_time_str' is an invalid keyword argument for this function
I tried running the code in the workspace and it looks like datetime doesn't want me to input the new_time_str at all. Is there a way to get datetime to take this argument or am I relegated to a collection of "if" statements?
import datetime starter = datetime.datetime(2015, 10, 21, 16, 29) def time_machine(num, time_str): # First, purage the EVIL LETTER S from the input string so that datetime doesn't herniate. new_time_str = time_str.replace("s", "") # Then return the original time PLUS the change in time with the new s-less string as the argument to be changed # using the integer input 'num' return starter + datetime.timedelta(new_time_str = num) # get an error.... # Get and error?

You seem to have gotten off track a bit. Here's a few hints:
- the keyword in an keyword/value argument cannot be a variable
- you can build kwargs from a dictionary using the "splat" operator (but there are simpler approaches)
- the letter "s" is a legitimate part of the keywords for arguments for "timedelta"
- you need to handle "years" but "timedelta" doesn't do them itself (there originally was a comment about this)
