"Do you know Kevin?"


See the Wiki info on the six degrees of separation to Kevin Bacon here:

What's your Bacon number???

Here's an excerpt:

The Bacon number of an actor or actress is the number of degrees of separation he or she has from Bacon, as defined by the game. This is an application of the Erdős number concept to the Hollywood movie industry. The higher the Bacon number, the farther away from Kevin Bacon the actor is.

The computation of a Bacon number for actor X is a "shortest path" algorithm, applied to the co-stardom network:

Kevin Bacon himself has a Bacon number of 0.
Those actors who have worked directly with Kevin Bacon have a Bacon number of 1.
If the lowest Bacon number of any actor with whom X has appeared in any movie is N, X's Bacon number is N+1.


Here is an example, using Elvis Presley:

Elvis Presley was in Change of Habit (1969) with Edward Asner
Edward Asner was in JFK (1991) with Kevin Bacon
Therefore, Asner has a Bacon number of 1, and Presley (who never appeared in a film with Bacon) has a Bacon number of 2.

As of 6 February 2013, the highest finite Bacon number reported by the Oracle of Bacon is 11.[12]

Because some people have both Bacon and Erdős numbers because of acting and publications, there are a rare few who have an Erdős–Bacon number, which is defined as the sum of a person's independent Erdős and Bacon numbers.



This listing is for one mug with the design printed all the way around. This design was hand-drawn with colored pencils and digitally edited before being printed and permanently pressed with dye-sublimation into a high-quality ceramic 11oz mug in my home studio. It features a black handle and interior.

This mug is dishwasher and microwave safe.

What is dye-sublimation? It is a special ink and transfer paper process that is pressed into a polymer coating at 400 degrees, causing the ink to vaporize into the pores of the polymer where it is encapsulated permanently under the surface. The paper is removed, and the ceramic is cooled. 

The image does not fade or chip.

 

Pithitude. Laughter you can hold in your hand.
