.6 degrees of separation

I like this one fine.

But I love this one. It's all about that strong vertical line of eyeballs. And that's just not something you get every day.

But should.

I definitely think we should begin referring to "when eyeballs align" as the universe's portent of significant events, rather than planets.

JC: Agreed. And thank you.

Anonymous: Nice. I, however, will never be sued in such manner, so I fear not.

Claudia said...

Imagine if these lovely girls had been posing at the bean! 4 sets of eyeballs all aligned. Oh my.

Technoprairie said...

I like the vertical eyeballs also.

But I'm dying to know about the 0.7 degrees of separation! Wouldn't it be 1 degree of separation since they know each other?

Mike Bailey said...

Claudia--Why are you making me take my daughters (and niece) to Chicago now? My summer is already packed.

Technoprairie--I'm sorry to disappoint, but I was just confused. I MEANT to say .6 degrees of separation, as a play on 6 degrees of separation, the movie. I mean, how could I mess that up?? But I did, and then I've been too lazy to change it. I'll do it now. And now your comment will look silly, not mine. Oh, except now I'll have to remove this comment, too. D'OH!!

Claudia -- an excellent point!

MB -- regarding TP's post and your explanation for it, you're 1/20th right.

Oh sorry, I meant to say "half" right but screwed it up! Oops.

Look. Numbers are important. The sooner we can all respect that fact, the better off we'll all be.

I'm disappointed by your just moving the decimal point. As someone who loved math in school (and still loves it now), I was hoping for some kind of cool calculation where you calculated the degrees of separation between cousins and sisters and birth order of the cousins and somehow manipulated it to come up with 0.7 (or 0.6).

Mike Bailey said...

Technoprairie--Yes, I did do all that. Frankly, I'm surprised you didn't discern the forumla driving it all.

Andy D: Yo mamma's 1/20th right.

Andy D. said...

Ya but yo mamma's 19/20ths WRONG!


Mike Bailey said...

Andy D: You're so mean. How could you say such a thing?

Andy D. said...

My momma could whup your momma, that's what.

Wait, what are we even talking about?

And no one has even delved into how in the second picture, their eyeballs (or maybe their souls) seem to be almost connected in a cool/creepy way. Really? Don't leave this to me to point out, guys.
