Play Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon — with some help from Google.

Have you ever played "six degrees to Kevin Bacon"? If not, you're missing out on hours of entertainment. [...] Google added this awesome game as a search option. Now, when you search for "Bacon number [name]", you get that person's Bacon number, along with the actual connections that led Google to that result.

So what is a Bacon number? The game originated almost 20 years ago, and treats actor Kevin Bacon as being the center of the entertainment world (if not the universe). Every other actor, actress or entertainer gets a "Bacon number" according to the number of jumps needed to get from him/her to Kevin Bacon, using movies and TV shows.
