    Thanks so much for this video.  I literally was wondering how to make a

    Dim list As New List(of List(Of String)) From {New List(Of String) From {"G","b","c"}}


    Thanks so much for it!

    Glad to hear it.  Admittedly, it's a bit verbose when compared to the C# version, but still a nice shortcut to instantiate a quick, deep collection of object instances.
