Narcberry threads are like a train, where instead of a speedy stop at a conclusion, it just goes:

SCREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEECHAAAAAAHHH...

One of those light speed trains in Einstein's thought experiments. It takes an infinite change in momentum (and, therefore, an infinite time if applying a finite force) to stop it.

I say we keep going until we have enough pages to write that many 9s after a decimal point to make it equal 1.

It's true, there is an infinitesimally small number between 0.999... and 1.
If you take the position that infinities cannot exist (this includes the infinitesimals), then you are simply mistaken.

there is no such thing as infinity.

lul.
If I was asked to imagine a perfect deity, I would never invent one that suffers from a multiple personality disorder. Christians get points for originality there.

No. By that logic, everyone who is not Narcberry must also be the brightest pencil in the shed.

EDIT: Unless we were to understand the "Not" in your nick as a logical NOT, therefore implying that you are the exact opposite of narcberry. That would make you the anti-Narcberry.
