My Erdős, Bacon, & Erdős-Bacon Number

My Erdős–Bacon number is 3+3=6, which apparently matches Richard Feynman, Stephen Hawking, and Carl Sagan.

And it is better than Natalie Portman and Kristen Stewart, who are both 7.

And I'm sure you really cared. Ha!

PS: I'm hoping to get a Sabbath number, so if you're a musician who can help getting me on an album, please get in touch with me---I can play guitar and have a good condenser microphone!
