Too Lazy To Type Degrees of Separation
You'll probably need to click on the image to read anything but that's the IMDBPro main page above.
Typing being the awful chore that it is has forced me to invent a game: how few mouse clicks can I use to get from whatever the current main page is to the actor, director, writer, or movie I'm looking for?
No typing into search boxes allowed.
For example, using the sample page how do I get to, let's say, Kuma -- the canine lead in Cop Dog?
We start with the #2 video rental from the left column, Death Race (1 click), from there to lead actor Jason Statham (2), then on to Crank 2: High Voltage (3) -- then to Lil Chev Chelios, Billy Unger (4 -- Billy Unger is the Rosetta Stone of Cop Dog!), then Cop Dog (5) and finally Kuma (6 clicks).
If music videos got IMDb pages it'd actually be slightly faster since Taylor Lautner (middle starmeter at #5 famous in part from Twilight, 1 click) is in the music video Caught Up In You (2):
by Cassi Thomson (3), co-star in Cop Dog (4) then Kuma (5 clicks).
On a side note, apparently tween girls all over the world hate, hate, HATE, Cassi for stealing Mr Lautner from them.
