I never knew google did this. If you type in any actor name followed by "bacon number" (doesn't have to be in quotes) then it will work out the number of links that connects them to Kevin Bacon.

I've tried quite a few now,, and can't seem to get any that are more than 2 links away, let alone 6  Smile

Interesting! I never knew Google did this either.

Since I'm a perv, I thought I'd be a wise ass and try to stump this Bacon algorithm with some porn actress' names. It took four tries but I finally stumped it.

Ginger Lynn's "Bacon Number" is 2 - she appeared in "Devil's Rejects" w/Sheri Moon Zombie, and Sheri appeared w/Kevin Bacon in "Going to Pieces: The Rise and Fall of the Slasher Film."

Amber Lynn's "Bacon Number" is 3. She appeared in "Girlvana 3" with Sasha Grey. Sasha appeared in "Inferno: the Linda Lovelace Story" with Matt Dillon. Matt Dillon and Kevin Bacon were in "Loverboy."

Jenna Haze's Bacon Number is 2. She was in "Superbad" with Emma Stone, and Emma and Kevin Bacon were in "Crazy Stupid Love."

Hyapatia Lee has NO Bacon Number. Woohoo! I beat it!  TeddyR

sorry to say it but I think Google treats porn name searches a bit weirdly,even with safe mode off.. If you try that name here she has a Bacon number of 2 - http://oracleofbacon.org/movielinks.php

Fair play for getting a 3 though, I still can't !

Max Schreck

Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman (by different paths)

Surprisingly, even Thomas Edison has a Bacon number of just 3.

Managed to trip it up.

It gave Jim Lovell (the astronaut) a Bacon number of 3. However, he had an uncredited cameo as the Captain of the USS Iwo Jima in Apollo 13, giving him a Bacon number of 1.
