A bit of Clojure in Python thanks to the itertools (islice) module:

def take(n, iterable):
    "Return first n items of the iterable as a list"
    return list(islice(iterable, n))


def nth(iterable, n, default=None):
    "Returns the nth item or a default value"
    return next(islice(iterable, n, None), default)
