Default My number is the coolest

we've seen various iterations of the "biggest rock is best rock" game. Convince me that you have the coolest number. You could choose pi, you could choose tau, you can even choose pau (1.5 pi), I don't care! what is the coolest number you are aware of?
I will bring out the golden ration/phi/(1 + sqrt(5))/2/some other name. It's pretty cool 'n stuff. In fact it's GOLDEN!

1. It does tonnes of weird stuff that other numbers don't, but it doesn't break math like 0. If 0 didn't break math (I'm looking at you, division) then I'd go with 0.

142,857

999,999/7

142,857 x 2 = 285,714
142,857 x 3 = 428,571
142,857 x 4 = 571,428
142,857 x 5 = 714,285
142,857 x 6 = 857,142

All of which are rotations of 142,587.

142,857 x 142,857 = 20,408,122,449
20,408 + 122,449 = 142,857

It has a lot of other cool properties, but this'll be enough to claim top "cool" prize

It's hardly zero's fault you defined your ring to not include zero divisors.

Note, I blamed division, not 0. Those two just don't seem to get along with each other about half the time...

But if 0 get's the upper hand, everything seems to go his way, so there's that...

I pick 60, because it was used as the base for one of the oldest number systems, and lives on to this day for time keeping.

Each minute= a multiple of 10, and each second should rightly have one of 59 unique symbols.
