Whilst technically the first loop does absolutely nothing, it does actually count as a loop and so the second loop counts as the nested loop so yeah, 8 lines long, would love more challenges like this!

For gosh sake, use Python 3+!
I'll let this one pass because I like it, but... technically wouldn't this be printing multiple asterisks each iteration breaking one of the rules? What do you think?

Well technically it's printing them in a loop, yeah it does break the rule you specified about single printing.

So I will re-do the challenge and make it print singularly.

Code:
```#!/usr/bin/env python symbol = "*" var = 1 rnd = 0 tim = 0 while var == 1:     while tim < 9:         if var == 1 and rnd == 0:             print "   " + symbol             var += 2             tim += 1         elif var == 3 and rnd == 0:             print "  " + symbol * var             var += 2             tim += 1         elif var == 5 and rnd == 0:             print " " + symbol * var             var += 2             tim += 1         elif var == 7 and rnd == 0:             print symbol * var             rnd = 1             tim += 1         elif var == 7 and rnd == 1:             var -= 2             tim += 1             print " " + symbol * var         elif var == 5 and rnd == 1:             var -= 2             tim += 1             print "  " + symbol * var         elif var == 3 and rnd == 1:             var -= 2             tim += 1             print "   " + symbol * var             exit()```

There we go @GOD I managed to adhere to the only printing it once rule.

Nice! What is the point of exit()? Is that just if you're running through the interpreter?

the loop doesn't break properly and I cba to fix it when I'm this tired so it's a dirty way to end the python script.

Oh okay. It actually bothered me because when I run the script it automatically brings up a prompt asking me to kill the program, and clicking yes ends the shell.

haha yeah, I just use linux terminals so it exits for me.
