python timeit() and randint test results so far

Update: timeit has a default and runs the tested method 1 million times!!!!

Update: 1-6-18  a few more tests done, one that took 4 hours, and a few outside the python virtual env.

Made some tests.  Wanted to eliminate my DLList, and the bubble_sort as the dirty gremlins in the machine.

I think they are a part of why it crashed, but not because they are buggy.  I think when randint gets together with timeit,  they just overload, and if randint is interacting with the DLList and it's an import even more shenanigans take place within the timeit.  My system can't do it. I would need to test it on a clean system to see if it's me or not. Powershell also crashed with the original file, so it's not just WSL.

I can't seem to find anyone else having an issue with timeit and randint.
But these numbers can't be right.... That or there's something I am doing completely wrong.

# this says there might be some other process making test times too long
#...but it looks like I'm doing it right.

I just can't seem to find anything that makes reference to timeit() crashing the command line, and my OS was not happy either.

Here's my test...   Thought about making one that would run all night... Kinda want to buy a new laptop.... and not really fond of the OS on this thing..... I could reload it all.  Another learning experience.....
