I have some questions for my game?

Anyway, I think you should use checkboxes instead of radio buttons for questions where it makes sense, in quite a few of them I wanted to select more than one option (although I don't know if google docs lets you do that).
Oops, something went wrong.
Something bad happened. Don't worry, though. The Spreadsheets Team has been notified and we'll get right on it.
The slowsort algorithm is a perfect illustration of the multiply and surrender paradigm, which is perhaps the single most important paradigm in the development of reluctant algorithms. The basic multiply and surrender strategy consists in replacing the problem at hand by two or more subproblems, each slightly simpler than the original, and continue multiplying subproblems and subsubproblems recursively in this fashion as long as possible. At some point the subproblems will all become so simple that their solution can no longer be postponed, and we will have to surrender. Experience shows that, in most cases, by the time this point is reached the total work will be substantially higher than what could have been wasted by a more direct approach.
