Wikipedia 5-step game

Post  Grainy on Tue Feb 26, 2008 7:08 pm

I've been somewhat of a spy just now, and decided to trawl forums for fun things to steal and use here to our advantage. Luckily I didn't have to spy very far and found it on the Weebls Stuff forum.

This is the Wikipedia 5-step game, The basic idea is you start with a completely random article on Wikipedia and, by following the links in the article, try and get to the most unrelated article possible in only 5 clicks. The next person then starts with the article the previous person finished with, and sees how far they can get with their 5 clicks.

To get us started I'll go with:

Commentator > Middle Ages > Mediterranean Sea > Grape > Heart disease

Heart disease > Aneurysm > Walter Dandy > United States > Indian Citizenship Act of 1924

So who is the most unrelated so far?

I think that Jew and the Indian Citizenship Act can be related in a sense. Its an act from history granting citizenship to Indians in America. I'd say this can be related to Jews also not having Citizenship under certain countries historically.

It feels good to be pedantic.

Are you suggesting that an Indian never suffered from heart disease?

My point was your two topics seemed conceptually more similar than mine not that no similarities existed. The link between heart disease and an act of citizenship seems more of an abstract relationship to me.

I realise there was no need to continue this further as you weren't being entirely serious but I'm feeling argumentative. I really should stop going off on these tangents that everyone ignores.

Angular frequency > Quantum mechanics > Albert Einstein > Württemberg > Landtag elections in the Weimar Republic

I don't win! But come a strong fourth!

I initially assumed I had made that mistake but there are -------> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/W%C3%BCrttemberg_Landtag_elections_in_the_Weimar_Republic
I'm sure Tom will enlighten me to my faux pas. Shame on me!
