Mind blown, I never realized this coincidence:

You can use the next number in the Fibonacci sequence (1 1 2 3 5 8 13 21 34) to convert from miles to kilometers.

For example, 13 miles is 21 kilometers.


@fribbledom Ya,some say Fibonacci proves existence of God!


@rayroy @fribbledom and they would be wrong. It works because the fibonacci radio (1.618) is close-ish to the ratio between miles and km (1.609). It's not a perfect conversion
