Another quaint example, in shell scripts, lines starting with '#' are
comments, except when the first line starts with '#!'.  Admittedly, this
is still a comment as far as the shell is concerned, it's the OS
that is intercepting the comment's contents and acting on it.

If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
