‘Degrees of Kevin Bacon’ Now Easily Determined by Google

Well, this is just great. Google has single-handedly made all the time spent on every field trip in high school completely pointless, by adding a feature to their search engine that instantly tells you an actor’s “Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon” number.

To find an actor’s Bacon number, you simply have to type “Bacon number [actor’s name]” in to Google, and it will tell you AND show you how they determined it. Some say the feature is not quite as good as classic website Oracle of Bacon, because it doesn’t use IMDB, but gosh the convenience of it all! You barely have to use your brain at all!

Thanks for killing all the road trip fun, Google — what are we supposed to do now, play Picnic?
