You can only calculate an arithmetic mean between well formed numbers you moron!  0.999... is NOT a number of any kind. It represents a SERIES. If you define it stupidly as Euler did to be equal to its limit, then you are taking the mean of 1 and 1. There is nothing to do you HUGE APE!!!!> > Grow a brain.
