Earlier in this thread, the most simple (IMO)) proof that
0.999(Repeating) = 1 was shown using no magic, mirrors or divides by 0.

There are 3 thirds in a whole (ie 3*(1/3) = 1)
 and, 1/3 = 0.33333333(repeating forever) (divide it out and see!)
   Multiply that by 3 and get 0.99999999(repeating forever) (try it!)

   Therefore 1 = 0.99999999(repeating forever)

It may be uncomfortable, but it is true!

Show me any flaw, trick, or error in this example.
