Talking Bajabeagle to flysci: We Share a Name

I wound up on this forum after googling my boat's name and discovering there's actually another Baja Beagle. This is just a silly shout-out to flysci, for whatever it's worth. Anyway, mine's not a sailboat, and I don't sail, but would love to someday when I retire, even live-aboard. I have though done some long distance boating in Mexico which I'm proud of.

Greetings and welcome aboard the CF, Baja Beagle.

The idea that everyone on earth is separated by only six other people has been shown untrue, even by the original study.

Its origins lie in the work done in the '60s by Stanley Milgram and Jeffrey Travers. In an oft-cited 1969 work, they put the average figure at 6.2, though they never referred to it as "degrees of separation."


Their finding was based on asking 296 people in Nebraska and Boston to send a letter through acquaintances to a Boston stockbroker.


The subjects were told to send the letter to an acquaintance who could best advance the letter to the target, but most failed: Only 64 of the original 296 letters reached the stockbroker. Of those letter chains that were complete, the average number of degrees of separation was 6.2. The high failure rate, and the possibility that the incomplete chains reflected much more distant relationships, led some to question the results. Also, all of the subjects were in the United States.
