Earl's Laws of Mathematical Ethics:

First:
Any unit of angle other than the radian is mathematically ugly.
Second:
Any continuous logarithm or exponential to any base other than e is mathematically ugly.
Third:
The absolute value function is mathematically ugly.

I am often known to call myself "7.389056099", which is (to the number of significant digits shown) a transcendental number that can be obtained in only two or three keystrokes on a typical scientific calculator. Can you figure out what this number means? Hint: see Earl's Second Law of Mathematical Ethics.
