    No surprise there unless you really know the nature of the voynich manuscript and the history of claims. if you ever see a headline claiming someone deciphered the Voynich Manuscript you can check Nick Pelling's blog http://ciphermysteries.com/ and find out if it's true and more likely why it's very much not true.
