Wow, I can't believe people are stupid enough to actually believe .99 would equal 1.

Puritee.... I don't think anyone here believes .99 = 1 it's when you have .99 (repeating) where the answers waiver

you know, I kinda feel like not participating in this topic anymore. I was learning a whole bunch of stuff, and it was cool. Then people just got too grumpy for me =/

That's the standard proof anyway

This thread now reminds me of /b/, which means we need a /b/ quality question.

i just stumbled on like this page of the 10 greatest math theories of all time, and one of them was the law of 0.99999 continued does equal 1

which is true for mathematical theories, but not in science.

I believe the Answer is A. Prior to the orange portal striking the pedestal, the blue portal must be moving down and the the left.This will allow for the cube to exit the portal. When the orange portal strikes the pedestal, it must stop, thus the blue portal stops, leaving the cube to fall down the slope.

This is the only way I can see resolving all paradoxes (assuming portals in separate but equal universes).

Much credit to Lv.
