If you and I type "date +%s" and press return at the same moment,
the result will be the same (or: they should be the same)

The timestamp does NOT depend on a time zone.

The clock on your wall may be displaying 15:18, the clock on my
wall may be displaying 20:18.  That doesn't matter, the time is
1097345880 for both you and me.
