Give me a list of all computable Reals.
I will use Cantor's diagonal argument to explicitly construct a Real which isn't on the list. This is diagonal number clearly computable, as there is an explicit construction for it. All I have to do is change the nth digit of the nth number on the list, a very easy computation.
