Not sure WTH it wants as this works perfectly for me in IDLE. Anyone have any idea?

Not sure WTH it wants as this works perfectly for me in IDLE. Anyone have any idea? I am sure it is this stupid test environment being touchy once again...

time_machine.py
import datetime
from datetime import timedelta

myInt = 5

def delorean(myInt):
    starter = datetime.datetime(2015, 10, 21, 16, 29)
    aDate = starter + timedelta(hours = myInt)
    return aDate

Yep, it was the test environment being ignorant. It wanted me to take starter out of the function and use it as a global variable instead.
