You ACCEPT these reals are missing, but not those 80!

A SUBLIST OF REALS IN [BASE 4]
R1 0.0000...
R2 0.3333...
R3 0.3210...
...

DIAGONAL = 0.031...

DEFINE
AD(d) = 2 IFF DIAGONAL(d) < 2
AD(d) = 1 IFF DIAGONAL(d) > 1

AD=0.212... is MISSING FROM THE LIST

PROOF
DIGIT 1 (2) IS DIFFERENT TO LIST[1,1] (0)
DIGIT 2 (1) IS DIFFERENT TO LIST[2,2] (3)
DIGIT 3 (2) IS DIFFERENT TO LIST[3,3] (1)
AND SO ON

So AD is DIFFERENT to EVERY ROW
since This Holds For Any Arbitrary List Of Reals
there is a missing Real for any List Of Reals
therefore Reals are Un-Countable!

|R| > oo

Hence you ALSO CLAIM
