Continuing with the tetrahedral theme, observe that the 4 vertices of a regular tetrahedron are such that every three of them form an equilateral triangle. How many points in 3-space can you find so that every three of them form an isosceles triangle? (Note: An equilateral triangle counts as isosceles.)
