    Do you know anyone who's ever met someone famous? Have you yourself met someone famous? If so you have a bacon number.

    It's the number of degrees of separation between you and Kevin Bacon.

    Example: I once met Christian Slater.

    When I Google "bacon number Christian Slater" the response is;

    1 - Christian Slater and Kevin Bacon appeared in Murder in the First.

    Therefore my bacon number is 2

    Hayden Christensen and Rose Byrne appeared in Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones.

    Rose Byrne and Kevin Bacon appeared in X-Men: First Class.

    But then you add one (yourself), so you're a three

    I met Gerald McRaney when he was on a USO tour in Saudi Arabia during Desert Storm.
    Gerald McRaney and Cuba Gooding Jr. appeared in Red Tails.
    Cuba Gooding Jr. and Kevin Bacon appeared in A Few Good Men.

    I almost met Delta Burke the same day, but she was too airsick from the C-130 flight to meet anybody.
    Delta Burke and Marisa Tomei appeared in What Women Want.
    Marisa Tomei and Kevin Bacon appeared in Crazy, Stupid, Love.

    I also met Dean Cain on a USO tour in Kuwait.
    Dean Cain and Cuba Gooding Jr. appeared in Rat Race.
    Cuba Gooding Jr. and Kevin Bacon appeared in A Few Good Men.

    So I guess I got a triple triple Bacon.

    Toadie from Neighbours doesn't have a bacon number.

    That's good.

    He was rather rude to me.

    I was coming here for this.

    The memory is weird. I usually gloss over the numbers in his name, but before seeing your post knew exactly what numbers it would be.

    Said hello, politely, and told celebrity I was a huge fan; been watching Neighbours since I was a kid and he was "Oh. Oh right". Asked for a picture and before I could say please, he cut me off! snapped "say ****ing please"...I was so shocked Punk.

    Didn't get my picture in the end. He didn't deserve my film.

    This would be a better thread if it was just about a random number that @Bacon164 assigned us.
