Three degrees of IM seperation

AOL has a little page up called AIMFight that shows you the number of people connected to you through three degrees of buddy list seperation. I don't even know what number I would have guessed if asked, but turns out that I have \~27,000 connections right now. I use it a lot because of work, but that's insane. Of course, a certain LA friend has \~53,000 and is in the top 5%. That's a lot of folks... and I don't really like talking to people unless it's face to face. Guess I'm in the wrong field for that.
