In addition to watching about 6 episodes of Entourage last night before going to bed at 3:30 am or so, I read the entire Wikipedia article on the Voynich Manuscript, following dozens of links in the process.

The coolest part was reading about this dude who theorizes it's in an artificial alphabet representing the Manchu language, and went on to decode the first page, constructing this amazing table [mirror] in the process. Fucking crazy.
