    I thought it was an interesting little tidbit. It's obviously more prominent if the pips are more concaved. I found it scrolling through Willy Allison's Twitter feed.

    Isn't this more of a coincidence than a trick? The diamond shape and the fact that they are red-on-white is what defines this. You could also fit an "8" into the middle of the club and spade cards but it's not really noticeable. Just wondering.

    Yeah, definitely not a trick. Color shouldn't matter. It's just the way the pattern and curviness of the pip that allows it to happen. If you find one where the edge of the diamond pip is straight or bowed outward, I don't think it would look like a proper "8"

    Never noticed that. Now I'll never be able to not see it.
    I'll miss Alan's profound stupidity.
