Getting to Philosophy: the Game

Recommended Posts

1.Go on Wikipedia and choose a random article (alternatiely, go here to do the lazy version: http://xefer.com//wikipedia, which reveals GTA 5 passes through gram-negative bacteria in its path to Philosophy xD)

2. Click the first non-parenthesised, non-italicised link on the article.

3. Continue doing this until you reach Philosophy, a page with no links, an unavailable page or a loop.

4. Record your score below and see who gets the highest amount of pages away from Philosophy!

The mean amount of clicks to Philosophy is 23. If the article you clicked does not lead to Philosophy, you selected of of the the 5% of articles that do not do this, and that's pretty darn awesome! :D

 

'Typing' is 17 clicks away from Philosophy.

I should have expected you to search that :P

 

Arocalypse isn't on Wikipedia (:() but 'Aromantic is 17 away :D

 

Also, 'Steven Universe' is more closely related to 'Aromantic' than 'AVEN' o.O

Starting with Hanna Kolb (I clicked the random article button)

 

Germany - German language - West Germanic languages - Germanic languages - Indo-European languages - Language family - Language - Communication - Meaning - Semiotics - Ferdinand de Saussure (!!) - Linguistics - Science - Knowledge - Awareness - Consciousness - Quality - PHILOSOPHY

 

I think that was 18 clicks total. I'm so glad I got taken through so many linguistics articles. It seems appropriate.

 

Starting now with Murray Beach Provincial Park.

 

Provincial park - Park - Recreation - Leisure - Time - Sequence - Mathematics - Quantity - Property - PHILOSOPHY

 

10 clicks. We can scientifically conclude that Murray Beach Provincial Park is more relevant to philosophy than Hanna Kolb is.

So I've had some time to myself lately...

 

Steven Universe -> 28 clicks

Garnet -> Philosophy is 20 clicks

Both Pearl and Amethyst -> 19 clicks

Both Ruby and Sapphire -> 17 clicks

Diamond -> 15 clicks

Lapis Lazuli -> 14 clicks

 

But Danny Phantom only takes 10 clicks so *obviously* it's a more thoughtful show and stuff ;)
