Ruby question

Pardon my noobiness, but I'm learning both Ruby and Ror at the same
time and am trying to understand Ruby a bit here.

Say I have:

Irb tells all. They are the same object. Your call test over writes the @venue for instance x and returns the @date value.

=> #Ticket:0xb7c8aab0
irb(main):010:0> x.venue=“aa”
=> “aa”
irb(main):011:0> puts x.venue
=> nil
irb(main):012:0> x.Test
=> “03/31/2007”
irb(main):013:0> puts x.venue
Some Venus
=> nil
irb(main):014:0> x
=> #<Ticket:0xb7c8aab0 @venue=“Some Venus”, @date=“03/31/2007”>
