Best 5 Minute Time Waster: Google 'Bacon Number' and an Actor's Name

Google has a "game" that allows you to see how many degrees of separation an actor or actress is from Kevin Bacon...

Kevin Bacon and Jennifer Aniston are a 1.

Kevin Bacon and Charlie Chaplin are a 2.

What does it all mean? It's google's new tool to tell you how many degrees of separation a celebrity is from Kevin Bacon. Surprisingly (or perhaps not), it's hard to find any actor or actress that is more than two degrees away from Bacon.

For instance, when you google: bacon number George Clooney, the following appears:

George Clooney's Bacon number is 2

George Clooney and Marisa Tomei appeared in The Ides of March.

Marisa Tomei and Kevin Bacon appeared in Crazy, Stupid, Love..

The game is a great way to take a mini work break on a Friday and see if you can find anyone six degrees of separation from Kevin Bacon.

What is the highest Bacon number you can find? Tell us in comments.

Just add one to any Bacon Number to find the My Dog Skip Number :-D There's a graphically-oriented version of the six degree game called Cinemadoku. Sort of new, still, but pretty addictive. www.cinemadoku.com
