This is extremely cool:|
I can't find a link longer than 3, try as I might.
edmcbride -> danigolden -> russian -> gregorysucks -> emohoe -> nickypoo -> woodysgurl143 (6 hops)
that's because everyone is connected to you. :) i found a five hop one, shadowsong
first random try gave me someone 3 links away. second one scrolled the page for a while then gave up. Guess I'm not cool enough :)
brad -> righellis -> sincityvixen -> reesepiece360 -> analsex (4 hops)

my first try took 5
sheehan -> papaya (random) (5 hops)
-> base (4 hops)
-> dixiesong3131 (6 hops)
-> mimi_eve (6 hops)
you must be the center of the lj-universe brad! :P
both of the 6 hoppers were through evan...
that's very cool. six degrees of separation-y.
brad -> angelicdestiny -> jennamac -> grrlstar -> duffmcwhalen -> dick (5 hops)

that's strange, he seems to be constantly 5 hops away from it...
brad -> katebate -> q -> brosely -> yosemchain -> franknbeans (5 hops)
I like this one:
Nobody is on kevin_bacon's friend-of list...
brad -> mobley -> rachbomb -> ratling -> peetr -> kevinbacon (5 hops)

Oh yeah!? Well...
I just had one that went through 3828 users, loading only 120 new ones. Of course, ratio-wise, that is fairly close to your results... It was fun to watch it scroll by 4000 usernames though. ;-] So anyway... Yeah. Major cachage going on...

The 6 Limit -- Or Is It?
This thing is amazing. I need to send the author a note of thanks. I've always wondered what kind of cool "analysis" you could do with all the data on LiveJournal. Turns out, I'm "related" to a girl at my high school through you, Brad, and to another guy at school through visions
. Very weird.
Which brings me to my question: what's with "6" being the limit? I think I have you and evan
on my friends list, and since you guys have so many people on your lists it short circuits the path, but I still haven't seen anyone find a chain over 6 people, even to random people. Is there a reason for this? It's very, very interesting.
(I hope I didn't ramble too much there. Running on no sleep ;)

Re: The 6 Limit -- Or Is It?
Like, math or something. :P
try connecting yourself to some of the people who are on your friends of list but not your friends list. People you have never heard of. (Like me- I'm four away) Most of those will be over three, or if you put them in the wrong order... just one hop :)
I could swear I made a comment before.

Haha, yay! Broke the 6 hop limit.
um...i think it might be way more than 7 now--i don't know...it's still getting users. its been getting users for like 4 hours now.
