A general meaning of the Russian word troika (Cyrillic alphabet: тройка) is threesome, a collection of three of any kind (except the Holy Trinity). The following particular meanings entered into other languages:
- A three-horse drawn sled or carriage
- Troika (dance), a folk dance
- Troika (triumvirate) of judges or political leaders
Eugene Grois used to refer to my developer team - Nathan D. Gettings, Tori E. Lease, and Misha Voloshin - as "the troika".
There is a three! I decided to use my teunc icon to cement my threesy.
