The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.

No really I'm not sure. Based on the number of people who have gone to the google question board it has happened to a lot of other people and the message/answer seems to be the same, i.e. that you have to do the mobile number thing.
Are you sure it is Google requesting\demanding this information?

It is possible your account has been compromised and google is attempting to verify your account via the following method: Account verification via SMS or voice call
This is merely a hypothesis on my part from the information you provided. I don't know of another reason for demanding your 'cell phone number'.

Google is asking for a phone number. It does not have to be one of yours. It could be anyone's cellphone. Friend, relative, etc.
They are protecting you and me.
Then there is the Facebook thing.......looks like your computer has been seriously compromised and I would not recommend
doing anything with the accounts until you get an all clear from Mole and the Malware Response Team.
