As pointed out by the TheNextWeb, Google appears to have recently added another easter egg to Search with a “Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon” tool. This adds to barrel roll, Zerg Rush, and a long list of other Google Search easter eggs we told you about, while Google also recently added some more useful tools such as a 34-button scientific calculator. To use the Kevin Bacon tool, you simply type “Bacon number” followed by the name of a celebrity. Wikipedia provided an explanation of the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon if you are unfamiliar:

Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, It’s a variation on “six degrees of separation” which posits that everyone in the world is no more than six acquaintance links from anyone else on Earth. That idea moved into the pop culture mainstream when it spawned a popular play and movie by the same name. It later morphed into a parlor game, wherein movie buffs challenge each other to find the shortest path between an arbitrary actor and the amazingly well connected Hollywood veteran Kevin Bacon.
