INTERNETS OMG

"FEELS" HAS BEEN A LEGIT TERM SINCE AT LEAST 1782:

The Duchess, by Amanda Foreman.

Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire, really wrote a real letter to her mother complaining about the feels in 1782.

I love everything.

Schrodinger’s Douchebag: One who makes douchebag statements, particularly sexist, racist or otherwise bigoted ones, then decides whether they were “just joking” or dead serious based on whether other people in the group approve or not.

10 Words in Mysterious Voynich Manuscript Decoded

archaeologicalnews:

A researcher claims he’s decoded 10 possible words in the famously unreadable Voynich manuscript, which has eluded interpretation for a century.

The book’s 250 vellum pages are filled with writings in an unknown alphabet and elaborate drawings depicting a range of subjects from female nudes to medicinal herbs to Zodiac symbols. The medieval text was discovered by an antique book dealer in 1912, and it has been rather stingy in giving up its secrets ever since.

Now Stephen Bax, a professor of applied linguistics at the University of Bedfordshire in England, says he’s deciphered 14 characters of the script and can read a handful of items in the Voynich text, such as the words for coriander, hellebore and juniper next to drawings of the plants. Read more.

if this is actually true, it’s pretty exciting. but i’ll reserve judgement until i’ve seen other codebreakers/linguists go over his work. it seems unlikely that people haven’t tried this strategy before (ie translating words that appear to be labelling recogniseable objects in the text.) his translation video is 47 minutes long so i don’t rly want to go over it on my overpriced dongle internet connection right now, but it will be interesting to hear if his translations do actually stand up to scrutiny.
