Is he really going to go through all 140 thousand characters that are in the unicode standard?

I thought Unicode® was a 2-character system, which would permit a maximum ❻❺,❺❸❻ character combinations. Also, Unicode® has empty values so not all are in use. I'm just posting the "interesting" ones, or ones I suspect I'll need to post in a message here, like when I used the registered trademark symbol ® in my article about the alternative to Roundup® that doesn't include à free case of non-Hodgkins lymphoma.

You're doing a fine job, Commander, and I can't wait for your Japanese article about blood types.

In Japan apparently blood type is a big deal.
When my leg was amputated they had to have a unit of blood available. I was then able to find out something I've wanted to know for years. My blood type is 🅰️+. What's weird is in the source message the "A" is white on blue, in preview, it becomes white on red, and smaller.

Yeah, only problem is I always keep failing the tuberculosis test, that must be it, since I consistently get a zero every time I take it.
