6 Degrees Of Separation

Apparently every person
on the planet knows every other
person through at max 6 intermediate
people.

Eg: I am 3 hops away from
Ex president Clinton since I know
someone who knows someone who
knows Clinton :)

Interesting fact. Comprehensive
experimental studies have confirmed
this behavior across 157 countries.

This feature is also the basis of
small world graphs!
