Best Google Trick Ever

usually at this time everyday, I try and show you a funny or lighthearted video. Today though, I bring you the ultimate time waster at work. The thing that will make your days fly by. Go to Google. Type in "Bacon number" followed by an actor's name. You now have a never ending game of Six degrees of Kevin Bacon. I say let Google take over the world if they continue to bring us mindless hours of joy like this.

My best friend and I used to play this on bus rides to marching band competitions.

We were obviously exceedingly popular...

Cathy said...

Haha, I just discovered this a couple hours ago!

IDoTheRobot said...

This is awesome! :)

There used to be a website called "The Oracle of Kevin Bacon" that used to do this. I spent way too much time on that site.

figgy said...

Enty, you've got it a bit wrong; it needs to be: Actor Bacon number, with no quotes.

So, Betty White Bacon number.

her Bacon number is 2! hee hee

Terri said...

Has anyone ever figured out their own Degrees of Kevin Bacon? I'm 4 degrees.

smashbash said...

I am three degrees bacon. A neighbor I had growing up sold a bunch of high end tools to Francise Ford Coppala who is Kevin Bacons uncle I believe.

DAMNIT, KB has worked with EVERYONE, WOW

Snapdragon said...

Six degrees of Kevin Bacon has always cracked me up... this is hilarious.

FS said...

It's worked for me with bacon number actor name.

I'm two degrees from bacon because I know Andy Milder. I thought they were well separated but they've actually done a movie together. Then I tried Michael Ball, fantastic theatre performer in London, but he's only 3 degrees away. It's hard trying to find someone with a high bacon number.

LA Mac said...

I saw this on wil wheaton's twitter last night. He was complaining about them being wrong, they gave him a two, but he is in the credits of a Kevin bacon movie so it should have been 1. Funny game!

Jack Knight said...

@smash, Francis Ford Coppolla is Nick Cage's uncle.

Seachica said...

I'm three degrees from Kevin Bacon! I was in high school plays with Matthew Lillard, who Appeared with neve Campbell in Scream 2, who appeared with KB in Wild Thing. So cool!

Cryscee said...

I wasted so much time with this earlier. The highest I got was 2.

Terri said...

just checked Robert Downey Jr.'s number. he's a 2 ;)

Terri said...

since people are explaining their degrees:
I"m friends with Lisa Stahl-Sullivan who was in Jerry Maguire with Tom Cruise who was in A Few Good Men with KB.

Irma said...

The system is flawed. It says Tim Robbins was in Network when he wasn't. I can't imagine what other glitches it has (probably to make as many actors as possible a "2").

Yeah I know that's nerdy to notice, but it annoys me!

Robin the Mad Photographer said...

I could probably come up w/a Bacon number for myself w/several people, but one that came immediately to mind: I met up w/Courtney Love a couple of times in the early '90s, and she really liked the brownies I brought to a Hole show, and she was in Trapped with...Kevin Bacon. (Looks like a Bacon Number of 2 is yet another thing I have in common w/our friend RDJ, some of the others being brown eyes, pre-Revolutionary War ancestors in this country, and a smartassed sense of humor... ;-)

Stephanie said...

Snooki's Bacon number is 3, y'all.

Agent**It said...

Go to Google and type in the word Tilt. You'll see the world the way a Lohan sees it.

lostathome said...

I wonder if there is an actor out there that is actually 6 degrees or if they're all 2's

Dee Lurker said...

I just did LL. Matt Dillion was in Herbie Fully Loaded?? That sounds so wrong; he so...xrated. So she is a 2. I would rather someone else did this for me, I hate trying to come up with an interesting name.

Thanks for posting your answers guys.

Sherry said...

I'm a 3 with Kevin Bacon through a movie I did that made most the more famous persons a 2. Yay!!

Seachica said...

Largest I've found so far is Johnny Carson, who is a 4

Seachica said...

Ronald Reagan is a 3. Obama is a 2. Mitt Romney has no Bacon number

smashbash said...

Jack Knight- ahahaha. Well they were in matchstick men together in 2006. So I am 5 degrees bacon :)

smashbash said...

Sherry- very interesting ;)

pdxbellarocks said...

I'm three degrees from Kevin bacon :) my bf met the bacon brother at six flags!

Sid Vicious is 2 degrees .. Via Bill Murray is all people !

mngddess said...

You know, Kevin Bacon's Bacon number is 0.

Mooshki said...

That is brilliant!!!

1Jazzimom said...

Fun!

Cornbread said...

I am three degrees Bacon...hubby met Matt Dillon years ago at a bar in NYC. Said he was super nice, and he still has his autograph (framed, no less). I guess I've never really thought about how close nearly EVERYONE is to KB.

I am going to waste hours doing this today. :)

DontRainOnMyPrada said...

Justin bieber's is a 4. although Selena is a 2 so that would really make him a 3, right?

babo said...

I ll confess it has been years I have been using the Bacon number to map my connections with prominent people.

My lowest Bacon number (I can think of) is 4. Not bad for a Belgian from nowhere. And through Guy Pearce no less !! (he has a 2 Bacon number and M. Babo knows him).

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

Good lord, I haven't hit on anyone more than a 2 yet! This is awesome!

tamarind said...
