Ken Jennings Gets His Own Column

Jennings Hits the Newsstands | BCBeat:

"Jeopardy champ Ken Jennings will write a column for Mental Floss magazine, a publication that claims to 'take the chore out of learning by presenting information in a way that's quick, simple, quirky and fun.'"

Looks like Ken Jennings has scored again. The column he will be writing for Mental Floss magazine will be like playing the Kevin Bacon game. Give Ken two disparate items, and he will try to link them in six steps or less.

There was a series of TV programs a couple of years back called "Connections" that did this same kind of thing on a bigger scale. This might be a fun gig for ol' Ken, and might prove amusing.
