Why is Python slow? A lot of blame lies with the interpreter's ponderous data representation. Whenever you create anything in Python, be it a lowly number, a dictionary, or some user-defined object (i.e. a CatSeekingMissileFactoryFactory), under the hood Python represents these things as a big fat structure.
