Has anyone else here heard of the Voynich Manuscript? It's a book from centuries ago full of strange plant drawings and untranslatable text. People have been trying to figure it out for hundreds of years. There's like ten plus documentaries about it. Recently, a guy figured out that it's probably in short-hand Latin or something like that. A bootleg health book copy. What's interesting to me is how similar its aesthetic is to YN's in some ways.

Actually, whether that theory hold up or not isn't clear, but there's a good chance that it doesn't. AI has even been used to try to examine it, which just created even more questions. The latest theory is that it's partially Turkish. The only thing people mostly agree on is that it has something to do with women's health.
Some of the mystery of the books has to do with it's strange pictures of plants known and unknown and bizarre parts that look animated when you spin the the thing around. You can read it here.

I recently read that some linguistic AI found it follows the same patterns as Yiddish. But nothing translatable. My guess is that it's in a shorthand cypher of some obscure language, and we'd need to delve deeper into its origins to get a better starting point to work from.

>delve deeper into its origins
Don't know how possible that is. Lots of history is completely lost and there probably wont ever be a way of recovering that information. If anything, information fades with time. It's interesting to think though that in thirty years people will still be able to read this thread. Stuff like this manuscript is fascinating partially because it reminds me both of how similar and different people from the past are to people now.


Yes. I wrote it in my past life.

Have you ever wondered of rooster onomatopoeia? Because the English version of rooster crow is so utterly fake! Just compare the audio of crowing rooster https://freesound.org/people/Sclolex/sounds/324210/ and the "cock-a-doodle-doo". Neither English "cock-a-doodle-doo", nor German 'kikeriki' or Russian /kukarʲe'ku:/ manages to achieve the faintest semblance of rooster crow. The only language I've found that does at least the rhythm(prosody?) right is Turkish: ü-ürü-üüü /yʔyryʔyː/.
I believe that the most appropriate approximation would be ugh'q'ghyrr-lurh /ʔʌɦʔqəʔ'ɦy:rlʌə:h/ (all vowels glottal).
And what spelling would you suggest?
And why do Indo-European languages(And not only those: Japanese roosters go kokekokkō.) fail to convey actual rooster crows so badly? Any guesses?


Languages are limited by the types of syllables within them. There is no use for people to be able to make the same noises as a rooster. You take what you already have and make an approximation.


People already change the pronunciation of loan words from human languages enough. You're expecting too much of them.

Now explain to me, why the hell does something like "kre-kre" or "ケロケロ" (kerokero) become "ribbit" in English?

My mood depends a lot on the the weather, time of day and season.
Time of day
Early morning is my favorite; it makes me feel fresh and clean, especially during the Summer. Something about waking up before most people, when the air is crisp, makes me blissful. Sunset somehow always depresses me. The sun slowly dipping into an orange haze reminds me that the day is coming to a close and that time has passed. The changing of seasons has a similar effect on me, but a summer sunset always feels the worst. Once night arrives I feel fine.
I love cloudy weather because it masks the time of day. You don't feel the slow, ceaseless crawl of time when it always looks the same outside. I also love rain and every type of storm. Hurricanes, blizzards, typhoons, they're all exhilarating. Compared to the daily monotony, they feel like an event. Sometimes I like to fantasize about massive, four story tall floods.
Fall feels melancholic. Seeing the world slowly decay into bareness isn't pretty to me; Halloween is great though. Winter makes me feel tired and sort of hallow. There's some nice things about it too. Spring kind of puts me in a panic. For whatever reason, when the temperature outside rises above a certain point, it makes my thoughts a bit hazy and erratic, this just becomes more intense in Summer.
How does weather affect you? Do you notice anything similar?

>i hate hot weather and live somewhere where it's constantly hot. hot weather makes me physically sick and i cant stand it but cant really do much about this situation because im a poorfag.
I feel you fam, same here, the constant heat and sunlight is just sickening. Where do you live?


The hotter and drier, the better I feel. I love being at the beach or in the forest during a hot dry Australian summer day.

I used to get fairly bad seasonal affective depression, but that was when I was more depressed across the board. Now I'm just mildly annoyed when it's cold, dark, or wet.


I wish I had the power to control the weather. My concentration and mood skyrocket once it rains softly and the cool air during the summer feels nice on top of this. It kinda reminds me of playing minecraft during the nights in the early 10s. I wish half of the summer days could be replaced with rain.

I like late summer/early fall, when the sun is still caressing your cheeks on a clear day, but you can feel the warmth fading away with the next cloud. It's a very melancholic yet nice season with all that colorful and fragrant foliage.

In general I prefer rapid shifts in weather to long weeks of grey skies or brooding sunlight. So the change has mood lifting qualities for me.


That's pretty uncommon. The changing of seasons usually leads to more suicide and death overall. Old people have a hard time adjusting.

Have you ever been into outdoorsy stuff? Either now, or at some point in your life, have you ever been into fishing or hiking or biking or camping, etc? I remember going on long hikes through the mountains and other trails with my dad. I always liked that feeling of adventure. Looking at abandoned houses, walking along-side roads, biking downhill the sidewalks of a busy bridge road, aimlessly wandering through densly wooded tunnels. The quiet of woods can really create an exciting tension. I'd like to do that more often.

Pepper spray can be useful, but there's a lot of good options that you should have regardless. Lots of tools can actually be very useful for self-defense. A box cutter is very good at slashing arteries and making deep cuts, but you wouldn't want to stab with one. If you do decide to take a knife and ever have to stab somebody, a good tip is twisting the knife as you take it out. This causes a lot more damage than a regular stab wound. A small, but powerful electric torch is both very useful on its own, and capable of blinding people in daylight. Even a sturdy screwdriver or big hammer can be effective. A steel umbrella with a pointed tip is also great. After you use pepper spray, what are you going to do?
I forgot to mention this in the first post, but you might want to bring a windproof lighter.
I talked to a Russian I know about this and they said if you ever wanted to do something like this over there, you would need to know the language fluently and be very cautious becuase there might be guys around every corner waiting to kill some tourist and take their stuff.

Some of my favorite childhood memories are going down to the creek with my sister and catching frogs. Although there's nothing like that around where I live now. Still, I like to go on 3 AM walks, it's nice and quiet and cool and the streets are empty, never really got any trouble from anyone except skunks and cops at that hour.


And i can tell you that's bullshit. I've been to russia and lived among russians and can tell you most of them talk like they're tough shit and big men


A women told me that. There's a difference between living there and roaming around the woods and places with not a lot of people.

Weirdly enough, it seems like a lot of loners/weirdos (like me) are into cycling. I guess something about being alone with the constantly changing, often cool scenery is attractive to those kinds of people. There aren't too many abandoned buildings near where I live unfortunately, but there are some pretty cool areas that I like to take photos of.
