    my browser probably implements this to be O(shiznit(n)) for a large enough n

    Love this. Definitely my feeling when talking about Big O performance bounds. Folks rely a little too much on it as a method of determining performance, instead of actually running tests.

      Author here,

      thanks i feel the same :)

      Most discussions in my everyday life about code/algorithms/datastructures tend to favor Big-O arguments over actual running cost in real world scenarios. Which can lead to tricky and embarrassing situations.
