sqrt(2) ?
exp(1) ?
pi ?

... certainly each of the "usual suspects" has a discrete specification,
but I've always been a bit suspicious of the hardcore constructionist
approach to irrational numbers (while at the same time finding it
extremely attractive to my engineering/hacker instincts).  ok, so these
are probably not "measurable" in the sense you mean either, but they are
*thinkable*, and that (I think) is the whole point (or as it were, the
whole hypotenuse, curve, circle, etc) ;-)

uncountably infinite marmosets,
