generating bullshit: O(1)
debunking bullshit: O(n!²)

this is similar to how modulators are generally very fast but demodulators are often slow

though, in the case of our current project, the mod runs in O(n) and the demod runs in O(n²), so it's not as severe

but this is mainly just because the modulated signal is actually a signal and not bullshit

@diodelass Are we sure that debunking bullshit isn't just the halting problem?

@diodelass 🤔 that sounds like bullshit has an application in cryptography…

@diodelass if only it was the other way around, we could use it for an encryption scheme and create bullshit coin, which would the the most aptly named cryptocurrency
