Was just perusing my favorite geek website, and saw an article about this.
if you go to google and type in "bacon number [actor/actress], Google will show you the connection Kevin Bacon has to them in terms of films.
For instance, if you google "bacon number Uma Thurman", you get the following:
Uma Thurman's Bacon number is 2
Uma Thurman and Rainn Wilson appeared in My Super Ex-Girlfriend.
Rainn Wilson and Kevin Bacon appeared in Super.
So far, Google has been able to link Kevin Bacon to pretty much every actor / actress I've put in, in only 2 moves.
Is it useless? Absolutely. In its own way though, I think its kind of cool. The game "6 degrees to Kevin Bacon" has always puzzled me. Seems like no matter who it is, you can link them in the chain, back to Kevin Bacon. Dude gets around I suppose. If anyone else finds this neat, were you able to get anything higher than a 2?
