//Useful for background tasks, uploading resources, print/task 
 
//Can be impleneted with array (use push/shift or unshift/pop) or queue class 
//Again any time you use shift/unshift, you have O(N)
//FIFO

// Big O: 
// Insertion and Removal: O(1) **this is mainly what stacks are good for 
// Access and Search: O(N) 
//Recall with array implenetation, insertion and removal is not constant
