A German ligature that originally stood for 'sz', but can be transliterated as 'ss'. It is never found in Swiss German. It looks like a B, but sounds like an S. Compare to the boring language known as English, which only has the ligatures Æ and Œ, which are rarely used.
Face it, English is a boring language, and the chance of a cool ligature like ß entering it are zero to one million.
