"if you go to a store, and something is one million dollars, and you have 999,999.99\$ will they sell it to you?

No."
This is clearly true on what you said, but .9999999... is a number that is continuous. It's stupid to even compare a measly million digits to the infinite amount of "9"s there are. Do you recognize the difference between to two? One is infinite and the other is definite.

Ricky, unfortanately, your argument suggests that the 9's stop. If the nines stop , the true it is not equal to 1000000, or in my case '1', and anyway, if your a penny off they give it to u... trust me it happens a lot.

It's not even close to the same thing as that Ricky.
This is totally different. It's not that simple.

How many of these are there going to be?

It's the same argument on both sides EVERY time.
