Ok - I have watched the video 30 times there is no mention of "special characters" for str.format or string.format
The python web sites are absolutely useless. Search engines are useless. I am so frustrated there isn't just a programming book that contains information. Dictionaries use what special operator to unpack: for example, when using str.format( **. my_dictionary ). Tuples, however, use the alternative string.format( *. my_tuple).

Perhaps this is treated differently in the revised version.
Are you aware that you are taking an old course that has been revised, and there is a newer version available?
