Six clicks from captain Kirk.

I don’t know if you are familiar with this, but a few years ago there was this thing called “six degrees of separation”. The idea being, that you are only six handshakes away from the president of the USA. For example: You shake hands with your company director at your office party, he shakes hands with a mafia crime lord during his normal day-to-day activities, the Don shakes hands with his CIA contact after his de-briefing, the CIA man shakes hands with the senator he is blackmailing, who in turn shakes hands with the hooker he just used, and the hooker shakes the hand of El Presidente after a tour of the oval office….you get the idea ! Anyway it spawned, among others, the six degrees of Kevin Bacon. The premise is the same, but you link two actors or actresses to each other via the films they have starred in alongside Mr Bacon. For example, Demi Moore and Meryl Streep: Demi Moore starred in “A few good men” with Kev’, who starred in “The river wild” with Meryl Streep. So I did that in one degree !
I have been trying this recently with weblogs, I have tried to avoid web rings and instead just followed random links in peoples daily reads. Yesterday I ended up at William Shatners personal weblog, and I thought it would be interesting to see where other people ended up. So, if you can be arsed, have a hop around the world in six clicks, see where you end up, then come back here and post the link in the comments box……Happy hopping !
