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.

dns[.]google[.]com
doh[.]dns[.]apple[.]com
dig[.]bdurl[.]net

They are using DNS over HTTPS (DoH)- to bypass content filters.

If there wasn't enough reasons to hate TikTok before...
