Shit, I can't believe Masterchief thought that .9 (repeating) didn't equal 1. I knew that when I was like...crap, I don't even recall how young I was.
I bet your mother thought you were cool.

There are a few idiots on a different forum trying to claim that .9999... is actually equal to 1, which anyone with half a brain knows is false. There is no way that any number can equal a different number. Please, can anyone who isn't a fucking moron back me up on this?

You do not understand what infinity means.

You fail at life.

They say death and taxes are the only two absolutes. Actually, they're only half right.
