    Has anyone else checked out Google's Bacon number calculator feature? You can calculate the degrees of separation between Kevin Bacon and any other actor by googling "Bacon number name of other actor."

    So far I've not been able to come up with anything higher than 3.

    This is not the Bacon you are looking for.

    For my own personal 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon, I can do it in two moves.

    When I was ten, I was in a movie with Valerie Bertinelli, Shelly Long, Jameson Parker and Craig T. Nelson...

    Shelly long was in "the money pit" with Tom Hanks...

    Tom Hanks was in "Apollo 13" with...

    Kevin Bacon.

    Even Johnny Weissmuller has a number 2.

    I thought he would have been long dead.

    I can't think of anyone that came up higher than 3. Even Charlie Chaplin's Bacon number is 2.

    I like to do my own version of this game, but I replace KB with Jamie Farr... 6 degrees of Jamie Farr.

    and without googling it, I can usually link just about anybody in 6 or less.

    try me.

    I tried running some silent film actors through the google bacon calculator, and quite often it came up empty or wrong. There's probably some high Bacon numbers among them, but you'll have to figure it out the old-fashioned way.

    No way no how was Kenneth Brannagh in a movie with Lon Chaney Sr.

    OK, Mr. T to Jamie Farr:

    Jamie Farr in M*A*SH* with Alan Alda

    Alan Alda in tower Heist with Eddie Murphy

    Eddie Murphy in Showtime with Robert DeNiro

    Robert DeNiro in the Godfather with Talia Shire

    Talia Shire with Mr. T in Rocky III

    easy peasy.

    Now, Jimmy Walker to Jamie Farr is a bit harder...

    Jimmy Walker in Home Alone 2 with Joe Pesci

    Joe Pesci in a zillion movies with Robert DeNiro, but we'll go with Casino

    DeNiro back to Eddie Murphy in Showtime

    Murphy Back to Alan Alda in Tower Heist

    Alan Alda back to Jamie Farr in M*A*S*H*
