This game is the antithesis of the 6 Degrees of Separation Game. You must find a continuous route, with as many degrees of separation as possible, an alternate connection between yourself and your sibling / spouse / etc, not using family relations as your beginning or ending degree.

Bonus points for including at least 5 continents.

       Many, many years ago, before I was a child, or an egg or even semen, I was most likely a rapeseed (canola) plant. This plant grew in the same field as other rapeseed plants that were eventually turned into canola oil. My father, as well as many others, ate food cooked in the oil, gained cholesterol that was later converted into sperm and...you get the idea.
