Six degrees of separation…

Posted: March 6, 2008 in Uncategorized

You know that theory that postulates that you are at most six degrees from anyone on the planet?

Remember that lost firefighter I mentioned a couple of posts back (as being news as opposed to Conrad Black’s shower)?

Turns out he was a cousin’s nephew. He was 26. He had a child a few months old. Somtimes life really sucks.

Strange, I had no idea he existed until a couple of days ago, and it turns out I’m two degrees of separation from him.

Which would make you all three degrees…

    I’m so sorry for the loss to your family. I hate it when people die young.

  7. I don’t know why it makes it more sad to discover you are somehw related eventhough you didn’t know it while he was alive, but it does. I’m sorry.

  9. So sorry, mon cher. I read somewhere that everybody in the world is everyone else’s 32nd cousin. It’s OK if we kiss.
