Re: VMs: Voynich manuscript - Manchu solution claim by Z Banasik

Hm. A wild guess what the next messages is going to look like:

"The VMS was written in pre-Manchu, where several of the characters were
different from regular use. The language was Aserbaidchan, with all verbs
replaced by their Thai equivalents. Vowels in a word were written in reverse
order, and every third consonant was left out.

I thus get for the beginning of page 24, paragraph 4 (the only one I have
translated yet):

'All men are born free and equal. No white whip but this is my last iceberg.
Distinguished amelioration. Yes. My hovercraft is full of eels.'"

(I don't mean to put anyone's efforts down [at least not as long as my own are
bogged down], but the approach, "it's an exotic writing system with
modifications, but it's surprisingly easy to understand" as put forth here
always makes me wary.)
