Did you look at the sources I provided earlier, cbarnett, that showed that you were wrong about .333... not being equal to 1/3?

He also sounds like he is calling all electronic calculators (my iPod touch included) liars.

You weren't wrong, narc. .99999 doesn't equal one, and we all agree to that. We just hi-jacked your topic to talk about basic maths. ;)

Never mind mathematical fancies, why do you own an iPod?

QFT.

Also, I love the multitouch interface, coupled with a UNIX based OS that once slightly modified, is probably the most powerful and useful handheld device out there. It's not just an mp3 player to me, it's more like a PDA. I can do basically anything with it.

Plus, playing Quake and Super Mario Brothers on it is a lot of fun.

I also have something that fits in my hand and is a lot of fun. It goes with me everywhere and best of all, I've never had to pay a cent for it!

Yes there is! It's just even smaller. T'would be 0.0000...1.
Even if he were right, which he's not, that still wouldn't be right.  .000001 isn't between .9999 and 1, not would it be taken infinite digits.  And .333... = 1/3, 3*(1/3) = .999... There's really no use debating this.  How would you express the number between .999... and 1 anyway?

By the way, the limit guy is wrong, too.  It's not a limit, it's the same number.

1=1. Nothing else=1. Only 1=1. -1^2=1, but then again, -1^2 is 1, so you'd really just be rephrasing 1=1.

That's the beauty of it, general. -12=1 because -12 is one, and the same goes for .9[repeat]=1. :) I'm glad we agree. Nothing other than one is equal to one.

0.9999... isn't an equation which, when simplified, equals one. It's just a number that doesn't. (equal one.)

Right, then find the number between it and one. (I propose that we dub the number with a symbol of some kind.. € <--- that one, maybe?)

I will give you a whole bunch: any number greater 0.9999< x >1

Now pick any "x" you want and as long as it satisfies those conditions then you have your number
Only 2 things are infinite the universe and human stupidity, but I am not sure about the former.

The thing is that it doesn't work that way if you have an infinite amount of nines. Infinity plus one is just infinity again. You can't put something at the end of infinity. Your sig does ring true., cbarnett.

There is no such thing as infinity. In this case, "infinity" is when your finger starts to hurt.

I know there is no such thing as infinity, but this is a theoretical equation. I didn't say that 0.<insert finite amount of nines here> was equal to one, it has to be an infinite amount.
