The great old disorientated infinity symbol gets it all done for you. The interesting thing is that in China this integer tries to sum up the size of the universe which kind of directly relates to the infinity symbol. The eight ball holds a ton of significance in the table game of pool. Being “behind the eight ball” is notorious with being in a difficult situation that you cannot get yourself out of, again inspired by the game of pool.
Outside of zero, eight is the only single digit when written that you can end writing in an upward motion.
