Ok I'm going to give up now. Mathematically it is unprovable that .999... does not equal 1, even though it doesn't, logic tells us that but for those whom subscribe to maths' truth, logic is a feutile argument. Even using hyperreals, Riemann spheres and limiting cases it can always be refuted. It's unprovable both ways because its an infinite loop of refuting arguments where nothing is agreed except that 0.999... = 1 is a mathematical fact.

So y'all stick with maths and i'll stick with logic
