Default Erdos numbers

We randomly found this beauty on xkcd, and could not resist sharing it (albeit we have the feeling that we have seen it in the past, so it may have been shared around, before).

If playing gomoku (X and 0) with pencils on the same math paper (i.e. what you call chequered paper) or drinking beer together counts, our Erdos number is 2, by more than one path...

Edit: yep, it was... Well...
