This is interesting. I am too much used to then getting array-like sequences
converted to np.arrays under the hood when I forget explicitly using
np.arrays for numpy, scipy and matplotlib libraries.

I was testing chi-square test to see how well my model representing my
actual observed data. Right know I don't need to use the function for
further calculation as I have different methods to estimate the quality of
my fit.

Thanks for your suggestions.
