Bubble sort, sometimes referred to as sinking sort, is a simple sorting algorithm that repeatedly steps through the list, compares adjacent components and swaps them if they are in the wrong order. More efficient algorithms such as timsort, or merge sort are used by the sorting library build into popular programming languages such as Python and Java.

The only significant advantage that bubble sort has over most other algorithms, even quicksort, but not insertion sort, is that the ability to detect that the list is sorted efficiently is build into the algorithm. Therefore, bubble sort is not a practical sorting algorithm.

```
//Returns the sorted vector after performing SlowSort
//It is a sorting algorithm that is of humorous nature and not useful.
//It's based on the principle of multiply and surrender, a tongue-in-cheek joke of divide and conquer.
//It was published in 1986 by Andrei Broder and Jorge Stolfi in their paper Pessimal Algorithms and Simplexity Analysis.
//This algorithm multiplies a single problem into multiple subproblems
//It is interesting because it is provably the least efficient sorting algorithm that can be built asymptotically,
//and with the restriction that such an algorithm, while being slow, must still all the time be working towards a result.
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
void SlowSort(int a[], int i, int j)
{
if (i >= j)
return;
int m = i + (j - i) / 2; //midpoint, implemented this way to avoid overflow
int temp;
SlowSort(a, i, m);
SlowSort(a, m + 1, j);
if (a[j] < a[m])
{
temp = a[j]; //swapping a[j] & a[m]
a[j] = a[m];
a[m] = temp;
}
SlowSort(a, i, j - 1);
}
//Sample Main function
int main()
{
int size;
cout << "\nEnter the number of elements : ";
cin >> size;
int arr[size];
cout << "\nEnter the unsorted elements : ";
for (int i = 0; i < size; ++i)
{
cout << "\n";
cin >> arr[i];
}
SlowSort(arr, 0, size);
cout << "Sorted array\n";
for (int i = 0; i < size; ++i)
{
cout << arr[i] << " ";
}
return 0;
}
