What is √3? I'm glad you asked! It's, well, um, er, it's the number which, when multiplied by itself, equals 3.

When is √3? It's the time when the UNIX clock measures the first ten digits of √3, at 1,732,050,807 seconds after the epoch.

Yet another way that UNIX proves its superiority over all other operating systems!

What was the Golden Ratio? I'm glad you asked! It's φ, or the ratio of two numbers that's also the ratio of their sum to the larger original number. Put another way:

 φ = a = a + b ≝ 1 + √5 = 1.6180339887… b a 2

When was the Golden Ratio? It was the time when the UNIX clock measured the first ten digits of the Golden Ratio (underlined above). This number is approximately equal to φ billion seconds. You heard it here first!

What was the Pi Sequence? I'm glad you asked! It was the time that the UNIX clock measures the 4th through 13th digits of π.
