too cool for me

While leaving a snippy comment over at Arthur Kade's ever-inscrutable blog today to the effect that this supposedly world-class actor doesn't even have an iMDB page yet, I had an interesting thought:

the Sober Husband has both an iMDB page and an Erdos number. How many people have both those arcane and enviable achievements? (He also has a PhD, but most people with an Erdos number have those).

He's pretty effortless at achieving all around. He also achieved more in the art world than I, would-be artist, ever did: despite his never having taken an art class, looking down on art, and his feelings of a lack of creativity, he showed a piece in a curated art exhibit about the Art of Burning Man in San Francisco City Hall and a photograph of a robot he made once hung in a big museum in Chicago. Thank God he hates writing or he'd probably get a book deal without trying. I've got to cling to my cooking and writing abilities as the only areas in which I am clearly superior.

Can he center a pot on the wheel?

He's very good with his hands; I'll bet he could do it right off the bat.

OMG, I luuuuurves me the Arthur Kade. Either he is punking us all, or better yet, he has drunk his own koolaide. Either way, it is certainly one of a kind!

I'm not ashamed to admit that when I learned that the man I was dating at the time had an Erdos number, I exclaimed aloud: "You mean you have an Erdos number . . . and I'm screwing you?! That's so cool!"

Wow! Same number as Bohr and Turing!
