So, my wife, Ladyshark, had a slow day at work today… she spent a good deal of time waiting for customers to come in to the store. Meanwhile, she and her co-workers were chatting about a sales competition that was held held over the Christmas. One of the girls had one the “Top Gun” for Canon camera sales which won her a quick $200. Cool.
Of course, as group conversation go sometimes, they kept going off on tangents, from camera sales, to Top Gun the movie, to Tom Cruise, to Scientology… and eventually somehow made it to Kevin Bacon. And, of course, once the conversation hits Kevin Bacon, the conversation invariably leads to at least some mention of the game Six Degrees of Separation.
Well, today, one of Ladyshark’s other co-workers was wondering if she could possibly be within six degrees of separation from Kevin Bacon. So, they hopped onto IMDB
and started searching. Turns out she was! She was exactly
six degree away.
Here’s the path: She knows Ladyshark, Ladyshark is married to me, I was in a movie (Touch & Go) with Ellen Page, Ellen Page was in X-Men: The Last Stand with Kelsey Grammer, and Kevin Bacon appeared on Frasier.
How cool is that?!?
So, anyone who knows my wife in person, is six degrees of separation from Kevin Bacon! Anyone who knows me is five! I’m only four! Crazy!
I know, I know… big deal.
Still, it was a fun little thing to discover today.
