But you are. You've repeatedly claimed that you can measure an arbitrary real number of inches. That is factually false. No statement in the English language could be more false. If you don't understand why, the choice would be to try to explain it to you, or to give up on you entirely. Or perhaps suggest that you take a basic course in physical science at the high school level.It should be obvious you and Maschke are implementing physical limitations that I am not.
But ok, I'll explain it. Suppose you claim you can measure 1/pi inches. Can you please suggest the nature of a the physical apparatus that could make such a perfectly exact measurement? You'd win the Nobel prize in physics for devising such an apparatus.
All physical measurement is approximate. Are you under a different impression?
Aplanis, this shows an appalling lack of understanding of the nature of physical science.These are theoretical line segments of length $x$ inches where $x \in (0,1)$
