For the infinity symbol polygon, wouldn't a possible way to do this is 
by modeling a tear drop (see http://paulbourke.net/geometry/teardrop/ 
which does not require imaginary numbers) and duplicating the points 
with opposite signs for the other half?

Can anyone provide some help on how to create this polygon mathematically? Since the equation for a Lemniskate involves the SqRt of negative numbers, which is not allowed in LC, I am stumped.
