Median of Data Stream

Given a stream of numbers, find the median number at any given time (accurate to 1 decimal place). Do this in O(1) time complexity.

Example:

add_number(1)
add_number(2)
add_number(3)
get_median() == 2.0
add_number(4)
get_median() == 2.5

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book.

  >>> a = [1, 2, 3]
  >>> a[-1]
  3
