I really thought I had blogged this

    okay, that is just too amazing. i spent like ten minutes thinking of the most random people i could yet i always got to Bacon in 2! that is just some seriously crazy cool programming.

    It’s been around since 96 at least I think. Derek Maynard (my first college roommate) stumped it with an obscure japanese actor. But it is tough to stump…the power of exponents.

    okay, so this thing uses the IMDB to get it’s answers. the trick is to come up with somone who isn’t in there…

    More power to you.
    1. That would only trick the program, not the concept 😀
    2. IMDB is ridiculously thorough.
