So here's a game (that I stole). It's very similar to the six degrees of separation game except it uses Wikipedia. You must go from one Wikipedia article to the other using only the links in the articles.

For example, the first person might say:
Andrew Dice Clay > Radiometric Dating

The next person would say:
Andrew Dice Clay > HBO > Microwave > Radiation > Radioactive Decay > Radiometric Dating

And then provide a new two pages (with links, please).

When you provide two articles, please make sure that it's possible to connect them in a reasonable number of pages.


Let's start with an easy one.

George W. Bush > Insanity
