Voynich manuscript - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"The Voynich manuscript is a handwritten book thought to have been written in the 15th or 16th century and comprising about 240 vellum pages, most with illustrations. The author, script, and language remain unknown: for these reasons it has been described as "the world's most mysterious manuscript"

Ok, I'm a bibliophile and I love history so this is seriously tickling my mental G spot.

What do you think?
This mystery was actually solved by Randall Munroe last year.
I think the largest probability is that it really is just gibberish. The guy who made it was probably not mentally stable. He was certainly very obsessive and determined, but I personally kind of doubt he was the fount of great wisdom.
