whenever I play poker, most of the time I fold. ;-)

I dunno, I don't really think that should count. Given the low average of the site, "Eric was my age once" is true for quite a few people, making the game kind of pointless...

So the Wilhelm Number or something?

Plus, a "degree of separation" is someone you know, not some pun. (and for the sake of #'s > 2, knowing someone on the internet doesn't count :P)

zachninme, you're no fun at all. :D We're playing a variation of the traditional game. Y'know...six degrees of Kevin Bacon...remember?!

The connection isn't limited to people, because otherwise we would all have to list everyone we know, since we're not dealing with celebrities here.

Why would we have to list everyone we know? We'd only have to list the people to Dr. Wilhelm, no?

And yeah, I know of Kevin Bacon, the "Wilhelm Number" was a pun on the "Bacon Number"

Eric keeps a simian creature in a cage at Instructables. Zachninme loves his Greasemonkey. I guess that beats Adrian monk...maybe this is more word association...

Well who doesn't?! They're so cute and fury... and their name is quite a misnomer, they aren't greasy at all! (they are a bit smelly, though...)

Well, everyone would have to list everyone they knew, and so would Eric, and we'd have to compare the lists to see if there were any connections...see what I mean? Ah, gotcha. I hadn't heard of the "Bacon Number" before...

Six Degrees is the theory that everyone is some how connected to any person.
You were banned in the Instructables Chatroom
Eric setup the chatroom
2 degrees of separation (at least i think I'm doing it right)

Eric got his Ph.D. at MIT. MIT's mascot is the beaver. Caltech's mascot is also the beaver. I got my Ph.D. at Caltech.

I got my PHD (Pile it Higher and Deeper) from the school of hard knocks. My boys worked hard knocking down beaver dams last month (dynamiting them to prepare the rice field for duck season). It's illegal to dynamite ducks. There is an "Illegal" group on instructables. Eric is CEO of Ibles.

There is this rule that any two people can be connected in 6 or less steps (I thought it was 10) called the 6 degrees of seperation. Adrian can be connected in three.
