Then its more likely that you don't know other highly networked credentialed P&C actuaries, which implies you're more likely to have a higher degree of separation.

Then you won't be able to calculate your own degree of separation. Fortunately, others probably can.

I just checked linkedin. I think you're two to four degrees of separation from Colonel Smoothie, depending on your definition.

I define as a parallelepiped, does that help?


On a more serious note; thanks.
