Unicode has a variety of symbols, some of them are very exotic. For example, there are Cyrillic glyphs ‘Multiocular O(opens new window) ' ꙮ, ‘Monocular O(opens new window) ' Ꙩ, ‘Binocular O(opens new window) ' Ꙫ and ‘Double monocular O(opens new window) ' Ꙭ. They were found in old manuscripts and were used in the plural, singular or dual forms of the word ‘eye' (‘ꙩко' - ‘ꙩculus' , ‘ꙭчи' - (two) ‘ꙭculi'). 

You can use them when requesting a code review: ‘Can I get Ꙭ or better ꙮ on this?'
