Ok I'll stop. You win. I begrudgingly hand you the trophy.

That cycle may continue forever, right of the decimal point, but the fact the next higher whole number( pi forinstance) is known to be 4 left of the decimal point, it is not infinity where no whole number is greater.

And it's true.
How can it increase to even be above 1.4 though, let alone go all the way to infinity?
