Because I am not James Nicoll  
The snake I was following yesterday turned out to be a gopher snake, not a rattlesnake, and anyway I did not try to pick it up.

We did see a rattlesnake today, though, and had to wait with our tour guide in the petrified wood forest until the snake could be collected for relocation.

My Nicoll number is 1.  That is, I have conversed with James Nicoll but am not Nicoll himself.

If you have conversed with me but not with Nicoll, your Nicoll number is 2.  And so on, as with the Erdős number.

If you are James Nicoll, your Nicoll number is 0.

If you are one of the James Nicolls who have perished in alternate universes, your Nicoll number is -1.
