# Introducing the Kiteman number

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.

Other known K1s besides myself: Randofo, ll.13, steveastrouk, jayefuu, Lftndbt, lebowski, canida, thermoelectric, Keith-Kid, killerjackalope, LinuxHx0r, RavingMadStudios, bumpus, Rachel, fungus amungus, Spl1nt3rC3ll, jessyratfink, PKM, Ninzerbean, noahw, Weissensteinburg, Goodhart, CameronSS, depotdevoid, kelseymh, StumpChunkman, ewilhelm, Lithium Rain, =SMART=, Sunbanks, ChrysN, Labot2001, The 4th Doctor, scoochmaroo, NachoMahma, nagutron, KentsOkay, gmjhowe

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.

Alright!! So, I am the K- number of 1 and 2 too!! To collaborate with someone is very well. It is the best way to have absents from a friend!! Thanks to all!!!

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

I collaborated on the barbecue, so that would be a 1?

Of course.

Lizzy has a K-number of 2. Jonnybo111 and WillyWoozle have a K number of 2 as well
