    @LandoGriffin

    Thanks, thought I`d take a break from political posts. Software Engineering a cool thing. Some of these algorithms I`m rather unfamiliar with though ("Bitonic sort").

    Am I too much of a nerd to recognize how the algorithms work just by seeing this video?

    I knew 4 of these before. The bubble, shell, insertion and selection sorts are rather straight forward. Like to see the code for the others though, to confirm my guesses.

    I swear, the sounds like a cross between dial-up and and an 8-bit game.

    @CrakrJak

    Merge sort (stable sort uses a variant of this)

    Quicksort

    Heapsort

    Radix sort

    Shellsort

    Gnome sort

    Cocktail sort is simply a bubble sort going back and forth.

    Bogo sort simply "shuffles" the array like a deck of cards until it is sorted.

    Cajun: It`s been decades since I coded any kind of sorting program, so it was interesting to see those algorithms.

    Some of the algorithms I`ve never even thought of, while others seem highly ineffective

    Whichever one starts at 1:56 - that`s the bomb.

    @DuckBoy

    Selection, Insertion, Bubble, and Gnome have O(n^2) average case performance.

    Mergesort and quicksort have O(nlogn) average case.

    That`s why some tend to take longer than others.
