It’s official – I have awarded my Scrabble friend a Doctor of Spider Solitaire. His first actual attempt was
- Philosophy -> Peter Thiel -> Forbes 400 -> Bill Gates -> Microsoft Windows -> Windows 3.0 -> Microsoft Solitaire -> Spider (solitaire).
Unfortunately Peter Thiel does not link to Bill Gates in 1 step, and there were a few false leads with some Windows versions (e.g. XP) not having a Microsoft Solitaire link.
For those who prefer visuals – here is a screen dump showing multiple routes from philosophy to Spider (solitaire):
My friend says he likes paths that go through Creed Bratton/The Office (visible on the left if you look closely). I have nothing much to add here 🙂
