THE theory of six degrees of separation took an unusual twist yesterday with a stark warning we could all be connected to Kevin Bacon, it has emerged.
Originally it has been suggested that two people could be linked within six or fewer people across the globe, thus making it a ‘small world’; but thanks to Facebook the degrees have remarkably dropped a couple of digits to 3.5 degrees - meaning we are a lot closer to each other than what you think.
Spokesperson for 6 Degrees said earlier today: “The world was fine knowing we all had a friend or knew someone, who knew someone, who knew someone. Now it has turned out we could all be linked to Kevin bloody Bacon.”
Experts warn the net could be closing in with fears of more people being closely connected to a host of unwanted celebrities including: Victoria Beckham, Susan Boyle, and the Kardashians.
