Here’s The Latest Theory On The Mysterious, Undeciphered Voynich Manuscript

The Writing System of the Cryptic Voynich Manuscript Explained: British Researcher May Have Finally Cracked the Code

Humanity will remember the name of James Joyce for generations to come, not least because, as he once wrote about his best-known novel Ulysses, "I've put in so many enigmas and puzzles that it will keep the professors busy for centuries arguing over what I meant, and that's the only way of insuring one's immortality." If Joyce was right, then the author of the mysterious Voynich manuscript (about which you can see an animated introduction here) has set a kind of standard for immortality. Filled...

But it’s also habitual, born of a general wariness towards JavaScript in all its forms that isn’t based on understanding or experience. This manifests itself as dependence on traditional SEO techniques that have not been relevant for ...

Kenja no Mago Episode 5 Impression

On this episode, Shin's study club visits the blacksmith shop for sword development. Later, Shin participates in his hero award ceremony and starts teaching his study club. First off, I actually thought I was watching a "hentai anime" when Maria randomly did a peeing scene in the beginning. It was kinda freak-ish and funny after the scene. Anyway, it's nice to see Shin get his hero award. Also, the sword development is cool and club teaching. Other than that, I felt pity for Sicily during our ma...

Divino Niño: Maria

Chicago-based four-piece Divino Niño’s “Maria” finds itself at the intersection of multiple influences and sounds. Sung entirely in Spanish, the song is a single off the band’s forthcoming album, Foam, out 21 June on Winspear. With psychedelic references and plenty of warm vibes, the song burns for exactly three minutes, melding together guitar, blissful harmonies, synths, a shaker or two and more.
