If you look really really closely, you'll see that that last nine's tail is just a little bit shorter. Tom17 was subtracting the dots from the nines above them, getting "small nines". After that, subtracting the dots from the dots yielded nothing (which is something you can't see).
The thing about infinity is that when you have an infinite number of things, you can have anything, including large nines and small nines (sometimes called ninnies). Once you have a large enough collection of ninnies, you're pretty much toast.

I think so. I would say that the depiction of speech is intended to convey the Cuegan's interpretation (and thought process underlying the interpretation) of what Farrah is uttering. We are not reading the transmitted signal, but rather the recieved one.Nice recordings all
- (I couldn't get the chirps yet, but I listened to everything else). It's really hard to pick! Part of it is figuring out how old we imagine the Cuegan to be. I like the tone of lmjb1964, but the voice sounds more confident (and thus older, less innocent) than I imagine Megan to be. BlitzGirl has a more innocent sounding voice, but (at least in the sample supplied) is more contemplative and not as conversational. For me, buffygirl's voice matched my picture of Megan the best. Innocent, curious, conversational, even a little flip.
I love Valarya's yawn... the shippers will be all over that one!
For Cueball, HereBeUnmappedBits' voice has a quality to it that really captures the character. The particular clip however sounds a little too enunciated, and thus, less casual. ChronosDragon has a really nice voice too, but is a bit too confident and analytical for the way I imagine our Cueball character to be. I think I've already commented on other auditions; there are a lot of good choices.
Keep in mind that these are voice samples, not auditions. I expect that people can deliver the lines in a variety of moods; it would take a bit of direction to get the desired result. I wonder if maybe we should record various casts, and then let the viewer choose which cast to play when they run it.
Latent22 - fun Beanie test! I imagine their speech to be more rounded and fluid, almost oriental, just based on the shapes of the characters. But that might be a great way to voice Farrah's voicing of Unglish.

Many years ago I had a layover in Holland; never left the airport terminal. One day I shall return. I'll just have to wait for it.
