>> In the physical world "a miss is as good as a mile"

In the physical world, you don't need to get anywhere NEAR an infinite
number of 9s after your decimal point for .999... to be "equal to" 1.0
Say you're talking meters - at about 10 9s ("0.9999999999 m") you're about
one atomic diameter from 1.0
