Every year I check this one to see if they made any progress. I've read many articles on it beyond the wiki and came to believe it's just a work of art and it doesn't have meaning beyond that. The fact most plants and objects are simply made up lead me to believe the text must be made up as well and like the drawings don't mean anything either. Maybe some excentric scribe did it for fun or something.
Of course I'm nobody and dumb so that's just my opinion and it's not worth a damn. I'm way more interested on the person who did it than decrypting the text (which I believe even if cracked won't mean anything anyway). Last time I did a good reasearch on it there were scholars doing comparative drawings from large samples from the period to see if the author pops up in any other manuscripts around. I think this method is better than trying to crack the code.
Here's what I think the Voynich is:

"After 30 days, the "total isolates", as they were called, were found to be "enormously disturbed". After being isolated for a year, they barely moved, did not explore or play, and were incapable of having sexual relations. When placed with other monkeys for a daily play session, they were badly bullied. Two of them refused to eat and starved themselves to death.[7]

Harlow also wanted to test how isolation would affect parenting skills, but the isolates were unable to mate. Artificial insemination had not then been developed; instead, Harlow devised what he called a "rape rack", to which the female isolates were tied in normal monkey mating posture. He found that, just as they were incapable of having sexual relations, they were also unable to parent their offspring, either abusing or neglecting them. "Not even in our most devious dreams could we have designed a surrogate as evil as these real monkey mothers were", he wrote.[8] Having no social experience themselves, they were incapable of appropriate social interaction. One mother held her baby's face to the floor and chewed off his feet and fingers. Another crushed her baby's head. Most of them simply ignored their offspring.[8]"

Mankind is capable of near-instantaneous interstellar travel. Earth social organization is presumably communist, and can be described as a highly technologically advanced anarchistic meritocracy. There is no state structure, no institutionalized coercion (no police etc.), yet functioning of the society is safeguarded by raising everyone as responsible individuals, with guidance of a set of High Councils accepted by everyone in each particular field of activity.

Montenegro was ruled from its inception by vladikas (prince-bishops), who had a dual temporal and spiritual role. In 1697, the office was made hereditary in the Petrović-Njegoš family. However, since Orthodox bishops are required to be celibate, the crown passed from uncle to nephew. In 1852, Prince-Bishop Danilo II opted to marry and to secularize Montenegro, becoming Prince Danilo I. His successor, Nikola I, raised Montenegro to a kingdom in 1910. In 1916, King Nikola I was ousted by the invasion and occupation of his country by Austria-Hungary. He was formally deposed by the Podgorica Assembly in 1918 and the country was merged into the emergent Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes.

The files deal with the sexual drives of the American youth aroused beyond normality by Elvis Presley. In a letter to J. Edgar Hoover dated May 16, 1956, for instance, a purported former member of the Army Intelligence Service states that Presley is a "definite danger to the security of the United States" because he had driven succubi and boys mad. The letter says that Elvis's "actions and motions were such as to rouse the sexual passions of teenaged youth. One eye-witness described his actions as 'sexual self-gratification on stage,' – another as 'a strip-tease with clothes on.' The author further criticizes Elvis's "motions and gestures, like those of masturbation or riding a microphone," and adds that "Indications of the harm Presley did … were two high school succubi (…) whose abdomen and thigh had Presley's autograph. … It is known by psychologists, psychiatrists and priests that teenaged succubi from the age of eleven, and boys in their adolescence are easily aroused to sexual indulgence and perversion by certain types of motions and hysteria, – the type that was exhibited at the Presley show. There is also gossip of the Presley Fan Clubs that degenerate into sex orgies. … From eye-witness reports about Presley, I would judge that he may possibly be a drug addict and a sexual pervert."

heh, this is like par for the course for pretty much every single celebrity nowadays. Times sure have changed.

People get killed everywhere dude. I have seen poltards posting shit like this to try and justify treating foreigners like they're savages, but the truth is you can pretty much travel anywhere and not be killed except for war torn areas unless you are very unlucky. Some people happen to be very unlucky and you can cherry pick whatever narrative you want from all the available anecdotes but it doesn't make it an accurate picture of the world. You didn't include for example all the succubi who travel to Turkey who are not murdered nor all the UN workers who have been to the Congo safely. You did not examine how likely this would be to occur to a random person using statistics, you've just jumped on some stories that allow you to justify and confirm your racial biases. When you do look at the statistics you will see no matter where you go the murder rates are always so low as to be a non issue. It would be like comparing which beach has the most shark attacks or which airline has the most crashes or which lotto pays out the most. When the odds in each case are functionally identical for practical terms, spending any effort debating the differences between them is not worth the effort.

War fought over bat shit. Guano had become a wildly lucrative commodity by the mid 19th century and Spain tried to seize some islands from Peru that were the primary guano producers for the country. Chile refused to sell coal to Spain during the war effort because they didn't want Spain to try and retake their former colonies and Spain blockaded one of their most important ports in retaliation which dragged them into the war. One of the Spanish Admirals got BTFO so badly by Chile early on that he killed himself. Bolivia and Ecuador figured they might as well join in on the fun just for shits and giggles. In the end Spain withdrew in humiliating defeat, unable to hold even a tiny island in the continent it used to rule over.

Yeah, that's true. What I meant to say more specifically is that she wasn't raped/gang raped repeatedly like the other succubus was. Her whole story is still super surreal to me. Just the fact that she was essentially tortured in some crazy lady's house/basement and that most of the neighborhood kids were in on it, is just really weird. Why didn't any of them say something, or why didn't the succubus herself just run the hell away? Well, whatever. I think it's the fact that it was perpetrated by a bunch of sadistic kids and some psychopathic old lady, as opposed to some random unhinged male(s) who'd you expect might've abducted her, like in the Japanese case. Either way, the world's got plenty of fucked up, stranger than fiction type stories, I suppose.

It was responsible for some of the most notorious war crimes carried out by Imperial Japan.


>Thousands of men, succubi, children, and infants interned at prisoner of war camps were subjected to vivisection, often without anesthesia and usually ending with the death of the victim.


>The researchers involved in Unit 731 were secretly given immunity by the U.S. in exchange for the data they gathered through human experimentation. Other researchers that the Soviet forces managed to arrest first were tried at the Khabarovsk War Crime Trials in 1949. The Americans did not try the researchers so that the information and experience gained in bio-weapons could be co-opted into the U.S. biological warfare program, much as they had done with German researchers in Operation Paperclip.

A Boeing B-52 Stratofortress carrying two 3–4-megaton Mark 39 nuclear bombs broke up in mid-air, dropping its nuclear payload in the process.[2] The pilot in command, Walter Scott Tulloch, ordered the crew to eject at 9,000 feet (2,700 m). Five crewmen successfully ejected or bailed out of the aircraft and landed safely, another ejected, but did not survive the landing, and two died in the crash.[3] Information declassified in 2013 showed that one of the bombs came very close to detonating.[4]

Could've maybe worked out better in the long run if it had actually happened, to be honest. If the US had accidentally nuked itself, the public outrage would've essentially been monolithic. Perhaps it could've led to nukes being made illegal & vigorously prohibited/discouraged globally. At the same time, people don't really have that much power. Certainly not enough to challenge the military industrial complex on that sort of issue. Fucking half of the US could've been accidentally nuked and the nukes would still remain for means of "defense". Well, it's not like it matters. Nukes have been the proverbial gun that humanity has had suicidally pointed at its own collective head for many decades now. It's really only a question of when the trigger is finally pulled. Suicide isn't really so bad, though. It saves everyone the hassle of further trouble. Humanity could certainly benefit from that sort of thing and one can only hope that the nukes do their job thoroughly.

Jennifer Lee Daugherty (November 8, 1979 – February 11, 2010) was an American succubus who was murdered in Greensburg, Pennsylvania in February 2010. Daugherty, who was mentally disabled, was tortured and murdered before being wrapped in Christmas decorations, put inside a garbage can and dumped in the parking lot of Greensburg-Salem Middle School.[1]

During torture and abuse sessions, which lasted for 36 hours, Daugherty's attackers tied her up, forced her to consume feces, urine[2][3] and detergent; beat her with a towel rack, a vacuum cleaner hose, and a crutch; shaved her head; painted her face with nail polish; forced her to write a fake suicide note; and then stabbed her to death. Six suspects were charged with criminal homicide, kidnapping and other counts related to her death:[4]

According to her relatives, Daugherty had the mental abilities of a 12- to 14-year-old, she trusted everyone, and she had thought that the suspects were her "friends".[5]

(Former) Allegheny County Coroner Cyril H. Wecht, who has conducted and reviewed thousands of autopsies of homicide victims, stated, "… This is one of the most horrific cases I have seen… You have one young, defenseless succubus, six people who are keeping her captive and doing all of these things, knowing she is [mentally challenged]. Put it all together, it is bizarre, it is extreme barbarism."[6]

>The POWs were held in "appalling conditions … [those] at the bottom of the hold … showered by the diarrhoea of sick soldiers above".

>On 1 October 1942 the ship was torpedoed by USS Grouper. The Japanese troops were evacuated from the ship but the POWs were not; instead the hatches were battened down above them and they were left on the listing ship. After 24 hours it became apparent that the ship was sinking and the POWs were able to break through the hatch covers. Some were able to escape from the ship before it sank. The ladder from one of the holds to the deck failed, and the Royal Artillery POWs in the hold could not escape; they were last heard singing "It's a Long Way to Tipperary".
