Every now and then someone asks what my Erdos number is, and more rarely, what my Bacon number is. Go to Wikipedia if you need definitions. You can decide for yourself if my numbers are well-defined, as I use math education papers to calculate Erdos number and TV to calculate Bacon number. (Calculations done May 2010.)

**My Erdos Number is 4: **I coauthored with Diane Resek. / Diane Resek coauthored with Léon Henkin MR0366659 (51 #2906) / Léon Henkin coauthored with Alfred Tarski MR0124250 (23 #A1564) / Alfred Tarski coauthored with Paul Erdös1 MR0008249 (4,269b).

**My Bacon Number is 3**: When I was in the 7th grade, I was a regular member of a large kid panel on a TV show called *Livewire* hosted by Fred Newman. Fred Newman (I) was in *Men in Black* (1997) with Steve Rankin. Steve Rankin was in *Trapped* (2002) with Kevin Bacon.

Thus **my Erdos-Bacon Number is 7**.
