TWC Wiki 501st legion Arnor Arnor, i.e. the Northern Kingdom, was a kingdom of the Dúnedain in the land of Eriador in Middle-earth. The name probably means "Land of the King", from Sindarin Ara- (high, kingly) + (n)dor (land). History Edit It was founded at the end of the Second Age (SA 3320) by Elendil, whose sons founded Gondor at the same time. Before the foundation of Arnor there was already a sizable Númenórean population living there, a result of the slow emigration of Númenóreans which had started under Tar-Meneldur and Tar-Aldarion. Arnor's second king Isildur (also King of Gondor) was killed in TA 2 by orcs in the disastrous Battle of the Gladden Fields. Because Valandil and his heirs did not claim the throne of Gondor the realms were split, but Arnor's ruler kept the title High King, whereas in the south the ruler was just King. Decline Edit Arnor's capital was Annúminas on Lake Evendim, but by TA 861 Fornost Erain had become the capital instead as Annúminas became depopulated. Reunited Kingdom See also

The Oracle of Bacon Hopefully, you've played around a bit with The Oracle of Bacon and discovered how few steps are necessary to link just about anybody who has ever been in a movie to Kevin Bacon, but could there be some actor or actress who is even closer to the center of the Hollywood universe? The answer turns out to be: yes. By processing all of the 2.6 million people in the Internet Movie Database I discovered that there are currently 369 people who are better centers than Kevin Bacon! What does it mean for one person to be a "better" center than another? That means that there is 1 person who can be linked in 0 steps (Bacon himself), 2769 people who can be linked in 1 step, 305215 people who can be linked in 2 steps, etc. So the average Bacon Number is about 2.994. By computing the average of these numbers we see that the average Connery Number is about 2.937 making Connery a better center than Bacon. Is there a "worst" center (or most obscure actor) in the Hollywood universe?
