Introducing the Kiteman number Answered


Seeing the new Kiteman 'ible "Welding a barbeque", it strikes me we ought to develop a "kiteman number" here, like the Erdos number beloved of mathematicians. The K-number is the number of steps between your 'ibles collaborators and Kiteman.

Clearly Perryscope, Kiteman's co-conspirator on the barbeque has a K-number of 1.

I myself claim K-number of 1 too. If you collaborate with someone with a Knumber of 1, then you have a knumber of 2 etc.

What's yours ?

So if I two of my three collabs are with Kiteman, can the number go below one? At the very least I claim K1, even if he can't name either of them, or even remember me. :)

No, it's not cumulative, its a distance from. So you are K1.

Weeee, K-number 1! Maybe it's time to adapt the statistics script to look up collaborations and find people with K-number 2 and 3 as well.

It is my favourite emoticon.

I've have stalked admired the man from afar.  He has been the subject of many of my ibles although he has not really been in them(not willingly at least). I don't even know how to start to figure out those odds.

Well, if you've worked on something with Nacho, you now have a K number of 2
