Of course I instantly tried out the phenomenon described in this comic's mouse-over text. It took twenty-two steps to get from Rangers pitcher Colby Lewis to philosophy.

More fun facts:

Fantasy football - 25 steps
Alapin's opening - 21 steps
Scissor Sisters - 19 steps
Macrame - 17 steps
Franchi Spas-12 - 18 steps
Branston pickle - 14 steps
INTP - 13 steps
Mount Helena - 13 steps
Transubstantiation - 28 steps
Philosophy - 3 steps (damn, I was hoping for like fifteen)
Sousaphone - 18 steps
Peter Sarsgaard - 23 steps
Six degrees of Kevin Bacon - 14 steps

See what happens is eventually you always hit the page for science, which leads (at the moment anyway) into a nine step trail that ends at philosophy (science, knowledge, information, order theory, mathematics, quantity, property (philosophy), modern philosophy, philosophy). Yay science, for being the alpha AND the omega.

I really just fall more and more in love with hypertext as we go along. It feels to me like a big step on the road to data immersion and augmented reality. I mean not that I'm really qualified to comment on something like that (grain of salt! grain of salt!).

Which I suppose makes it somewhat perturbing that I'm writing a sci-fi novel.

EDIT: was reading this back to check for any big errors or mistyped links, and it suddenly occurred to me that it's kinda daunting that philosophy leads back to itself. Wikipedia isn't a line, folks.

It's a ray.

Augh!
