ah, thats better. So now for the real nubie question, I am lost as
to why this does not work:

irb(main):001:0> o = 123
=> 123
irb(main):002:0> #{o} =
irb(main):003:0* o.class
=> Fixnum
irb(main):004:0> #{o}.class

The #{} notation is only applicable inside a string: “#{o}”. The
way you are using it make the line look like a comment.
Everything after the # is simply discarded.

Maybe you are looking for something like:

a = 123
b = [o]
p b # [123]
