This allows you to access the choices (and their respective values) you create as a dictionary. It works great within django and it allows you to reference the choices as a dictionary (CHOICES[CHOICE1]) instead of CHOICES[0][0]... it is a tuple... but I mean, come on... what if you change the order? If you need the tuple just call CHOICES.choices and it will return the standard tuple.
