I'm sure most of you have heard of the six degrees of separation concept, that is, that you're only separated from every other person on the planet by six people or less.
Six people from Hugh Jackman... yummy!
Six people from Charles Manson... creepy!
Six people from Dolly Parton... weirdy!
Hmmm.... Well, a few years ago I discovered that I was indeed only separated by six people from George Dubya Bush. Icky! Imagine the head-spinning that ensued.
But now I'm happy to report that I'm only 3 DEGREES from awesome. Yep, only three people from me to Barack Obama.
