Ahh, nope, I didn't know that.

I figured I'll say a little something about myself. Did You Know that I share a date with someone? And it is a little too coincidental.

Nope, didn't know! I assume it was for "Acts of God"? I have sort of heard about it, to be honest, but just not in greater details.

Did you know that there is an extremely inefficient sorting algorithm called Bogosort? It is intentionally meant to be dumb. The way it works is that it will randomly shuffle everything and check if it is sorted after a shuffle. If not, then sort again, and repeats.

For example, you have numbers 1 to 10. It will shuffle, then check. Is 5, 9, 8, 4, 2, 1, 7, 3, 10, 6 the correct order? No? Too bad! Shuffle it randomly again.

And this repeats on until it gets the right order by chance.
