Hi Homer! Thanks for joining our one big family WikiTree!
Here is your degrees of separation from actor, Kevin Bacon. http://www.wikitree.com/index.php?title=Special:Connection&action=connect&person1Name=Bacon-2568&person2Name=Buck-2110 As you can see, the color changes from Kevin to his wife which means it is a degree of separation, but on a different family line. Along about the middle of the connection, there is another family change for a couple connections and then there is another family change as the line gets closer to you.
What this means is, through connecting families you are connected to Kevin Bacon, but he is not a blood relative nor is he your cousin on a direct line. The degrees of separation is just a fun game that doesn't really have much to do with genealogical families, except by marriages.
