Not sure if this #sign is in Qbert-ese or represents a store that's named for a swear word...
Found this at the grocery store. I, um, guess that answers the question of what #coffee to serve with Death By Chocolate cake.

Article by Phil Plait explaining the science behind the Event Horizon Telescope's ground-breaking image of the supermassive black hole in M87 - the world's first-ever actual image of the event horizon (or, more precisely, silhouette) of a black hole.

Interesting: Google proposes to standardize the mix of emoji that have gender options & give each a gender-inclusive default.
Example: Person Shrugging can appear alone 🤷 or with a hidden character indicating a man 🤷♂️ or woman 🤷♀️.

The UI below is not finalized.
