You CAN'T JUST SAY "go on". YOU have to supply the meaning of the ellipsis. YOU have to tell us JUST HOW you are going on.

NO, DUMBASS, I DO NOT think all those are missing. For all I care, you could STIPULATE that they are all PRESENT. THE ANTI-DIAGONAL *WOULD*STILL* be missing.

Any and every real YOU LIKE could be there because you can only SAY YOU LIKE the ones THAT ARE DEFINABLE, DUMBASS. Uncountably many of them are NOT definable and would take LONGER THAN YOU CAN TALK to specify. That is why THE QUESTION THAT IS THE TITLE of your thread is TOTALLY stupid. WHY IS IT THAT *YOU* NEVER CALCULATE Pi? Or e? Or the square root of 2?? ANY "calculation" of ANY irrational real NEVER TERMINATES, *DUMBASS*. YOU NEVER FINISH "calculating" it! Are you REALLY STUPID enough to claim that that MATTERS? THAT *DOES*NOT* matter! It IS INHERENT in the nature OF ANYthing infinitely long that OF COURSE you never "Actually calculate" it!!
