U+2022 is supposed to be the unicode bullet. It's not on any non-unicode ont,

There is also U+2023 (arrow bullet) and U+2043 (dash bullet).

Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place.
Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are,
by definition, not smart enough to debug it. --Brian W. Kernighan
