The World Is Connected, or Everybody Knows Everybody Answered

The greatest experiment of all time! The idea is that you tell everybody you know (who is likely to participate), that the world is connected, and everyone knows everyone. Tell them to tell everybody they know the same sentence. How long will it take in this modern age of information for this message to reach everyone?

You want us to junk mail everyone we know? Like we don't get enough 'forward this to everyone you know' crap as it is? L

Nah, I was thinking by word of mouth (I hate that forward me crap as well). Only reason I posted it hear is because it would get jumpstarted somewhat, and it is very difficult to shout messeges across the Atlantic (or Pacific, or Artic, or Indian).
