Voynich manuscript

The Voynich manuscript is one the most fascinating things I have heard about in a long, long time. I mean, what a fantastic mystery and a fantastic achievement by whoever wrote it! Of course I first heard about it from Randall Munroe, and I don’t know which theory about its purpose and origin I favor, and I certainly don’t think it’ll be solved within my lifetime, but it’s fascinating to ponder the time, effort, devotion, and planning that went into its creation, not to mention all the attempts at deciphering it that have led absolutely nowhere.
