# Thread: Uncountable Meagre Sets Besides The Cantor Set

1. ## Uncountable Meagre Sets Besides The Cantor Set

I would like to define an uncountable meagre set that is dense in the real line such that the Cantor set is not a subset of my set.

Any ideas? Thanks!

Unfortunately, your bank account is not dense in any interval. So no, your bank account does not qualify.

3. I don't get it...everyone runs around claiming there exist all these dense meagre sets but no one can show one exists...

4. I have explicitly defined a first category set that is dense AND nowhere dense in the entire real line. Thanks for the help [sarcasm]
