ENOUGH! (was: "Re: [OT]: Brain Burp Rounding??")

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.
