    Google has lent its search algorithm to one of the most powerful memes of the decade: the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon. 

    Now users can use Google's search engine to find out any actor's Bacon number, according to the Guardian. Previously Google would have easter eggs, or surprises, hidden in its search engine when users typed in a phrase. Now typing in "Bacon number" and any thespian gets an actor or actress's degree of separation from actor Bacon.

    For instance, teen pop sensation (and sometimes actor) Justin Bieber has a Bacon number of 4, while the prehistoric actor Clint Eastwood is much closer at 2. This is definitely a good way to waste an hour, so you mght want to wait to use it until after work.
