Yes, 0.999999... = 1 This is a proven fact by some of the greatest mathematicians of all times and anyone who disagrees is ^#$%ing retarded. Look it up: www.google.com

At another message board that I used to go to all the time they would have this argument like twice a week.

Okay, and where do you put the 1? "at the end" What if there IS no end? What if it goes on forever? See? Its all just a series of 0's that go on forever, there IS no "1" at the end, and thats because 0.9999... is equal to 1.

you clearly have no idea about the term infinity. theres a reason its an undefined value. You cant put a number on it. There WONT always be a missing one. youre so #$%#ing clueless 99% of the time.

Classic OT debate again. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

There is always an end. Without an end, you have no beginning, without a beginning, there's no "0." before your nines.

tell this to some of the greatest mathematicians of all time. they will disagree with you. it may be unintuitive, but thats how shit is when extrapolated to infinity. Until you back your shit up with a mathematic proof, its null and void.

yep. were expanding at an accelerating rate which should mean no end. theoretically a death to the universe could be simply that everything gets so spread out, that the ratio of matter to space becomes one of those .00000000000.....1 segments, and at time point infinity ceases to exist.
