They are both cultured figures.

But one is more cultured than the other.

They are both symmetrical about a horizontal axis.

Only 8 is symmetrical about a vertical axis.

I've got more Disky product

a label like Dutch Disky

One comp to avoid, though, is Disky's "Best of the 70's"

Normally, Disky are clever at repackaging

Both are Flavian principles
Neither can be promulgated by a cartesian

3 is a triangular number, 8 is not.
Both appear in the Fibonacci sequence.

Both have five letters.

One starts with a T and ends with an E, the other starts with an E and ends with a T.

If you cut 8 in half and chose the half on the right, then it would look a bit like a three.

What do I win?

Same: Both can be expressed as an infinite set of improper fractions

3= 3/1 = 6/2 = 9/3,...

8= 8/1 = 16/2 = ,...


Different: one is less than 3.5 and one is greater than 3.5

They are both factors of 24

8 is a multiple of 2, 3 is not a multiple of 2
Don't even THINK of using a left handed coordinate system
