I found this to be fairly interesting: apparently, the infinity symbol (∞) is not a direct descendant of the Möbius strip, a closed path, or anything similar, instead, it is a corruption of the Etruscan numeral for 1,000, which is essentially a vertical line with two curves branching off from opposite sides from a point nearly at the top, and continuing to the same level as the lower point. To be slightly less obfuscated, it resembles an “m”, which is, in fact, the source from which the Roman numeral “M” was derived. The infinity symbol is a corruption of this symbol.

Yes, I actually found that interesting, quite so, in fact.
