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

What about the math proof someone posted a while ago...
x = .999...
10*x = 9.999...
9*x = 10*x - x (the infinite .9999 cleanly subtract from one another -->)
9*x = 9.999... - .999... = 9.0
x = 1
No divisions by zero or other math-destroying magic required...
