Being really tired at the end of a long, exhausting week can leave one…vulnerable.
The rabbit hole of the internet and Google searches and Wikipedia and IMDB and all of it can be strong on someone in a vulnerable position.
Which can lead to learning…things.
Start with an innocent Hallmark movie with Danica McKellar, who is cute and smart and has a most interesting and diverse background outside of acting, so I sort of adore her.
Which led to the Oracle of Bacon to see her Bacon Number.
Which led to learning that she also has an Erdös-Bacon number, so of course I had to go see what an Erdös number was.
Which led to me realizing just how freaking rare it is to have an Erdös-Bacon number!
Which led me to find out that she has an Erdös-Bacon-Sabbath number (ESB) of 10.
Which led me even further down the rabbit hole to find out what an ESB is.
Albert Einstein has an ESB of only 8, while Danica McKellar has a 10?
So what’s Brian May‘s ESB? A man I consider to be a god walking among us!
Finally, a question that appears to have no simple answer in a Google search or two.
But it’s obvious that his “S” number is 1, since it’s easy to find references to a recent collaboration with Black Sabbath.
And Oracle of Bacon says his “B” number is 3. (Via Joe Walsh and John Candy, “The Strat Pack,” “The Blues Brothers,” and “Planes, Trains, Automobiles,” obviously!)
So can we track down an “E” number for Brian May? Apparently it’s a 7.
So Brian May, lead guitarist for Queen, astrophysicist, demigod, has an ESB of 11.
While Danica McKellar has an ESB of 10. I wonder if she knows?
And if Danica’s ESB is 10 but her Erdös-Bacon number is 6 (E=4, B=2), then what is the “S” that’s a 4?
Apparently even THAT isn’t a questions that can stump Google tonight.
