I'm Bored

...And have an hour to kill. So, time to play the Wikipedia "Bacon" game.

The rules of the game require you to find the shortest number of linked articles from one topic to another. I've never actually heard any rules for picking end-points, so we'll let the "random article" link do the work. Let's see, we've got:

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and black garden ant.

Hmmm... Let's see:

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
C++
Exception handling
Debugging
Computer bug
Insect
Ant
Formicinae
Lasius
Lasius niger, a.k.a., black garden ant.

Gaah, nine steps. Somebody's got to be able to do better.
