Unicode aims to represent every possible character in every possible language in a single character encoding. Its an ambitious undertaking, the current version has mapped 113 thousand distinct characters to code points in Unicode - each one of which is given a unique name and description. Basically every language ever written can be encoded with Unicode now. Even dead languages like Phoenician, Aramaic and the Ancient Greek 'Linear A' script all have code points assigned. Linear A hasn't even been deciphered yet, so there are characters in Unicode that no-one knows what they actually represent! Likewise Unicode contains a huge assortment of symbols that aren't part of any language. Emoji like a Christmas Tree, a Slice of Pizza, or a Pile of Poop all can be represented with a single Unicode code point. However, the real craziness with Unicode isn't in the sheer number of characters that have been assigned. The real fun starts when you look at how all these characters interact with one another.

On the ad blocking front, the situation keeps getting worse. Until now, the media industry pretended to ignore the problem, perhaps waiting for a miracle cure. This might turn into a long lull.
