Kevin Bacon Game

By now, I'm sure everyone is well aware of the Kevin Bacon Game (Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, or whatever you choose to call it...) When I was in college, I had a job working the front desk of the dorm and my friend Chris introduced me to the game, and while he worked one desk, I worked the other, and we'd call back and forth with connections. I personally am three degrees of separation to Kevin Bacon, with which details I will spare you for a variety of reasons, primarily being that I don't want you to know how psycho I really am. But I stumbled across The Oracle of Kevin Bacon from the University of Virginia that connects movie actors to Kevin Bacon using a database and imdb. Pretty cool, even though it does take some of the fun out of the game.
