Ah yes, quite right. All of the complexity descriptions only apply if you actually ''use'' all of the list. I should probably mention that somewhere...

on the topic of slower operations: it should be noted that filter, map, zip, etc. are only O(n) if the whole list is evaluated. since these are lazy functions any of these will be O(1):

head $ map (+1) [0..]
(filter even [0..])!!5
take 5 $ zip [0..] [5..]
