More Voynich-related stuff...

Here are some current links to amuse (and possibly inform) you...

(1) A 49-second clip on Voynich manuscript page f2v (yes, really!) from that well-known research institution, YouTube. And no, I don't know what the commentary is saying either (please tell me if you do):-
