So my students were working on a research project today and began talking about a search game similar to 6 degrees of separation. What you do is type in a random object like bricks. Then, tell the person to find a random famous person using only the links on the pages. Brinks > Roman Roads > Roman Empire > Early Christianity> Jesus.

Let the fun ensue.
