Not really a website, but I just heard about this. An untranslatable manuscript from the 14th-15th century written in an unknown language, showing illustrations of unknown plants and animals.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voynich_manuscript

I love mysterious things...

I've always loved the Voynich Manuscript. Check out this explanation, it makes as much sense as any other:

The mouseover text says: "Wait, is that the ORIGINAL Voynich Manuscript? Where did you GET that? Wanna try playing a round of Druids and Dicotyledons?"

Yeah, I thought so. Of course, I've always been a big fan of XKCD anyway.

I wonder if there is something in that book that would help my tomato plants this year. Maybe I'll have to get a copy and dance around wood henge or something.

Spraying the leaves with stale beer keeps aphids off, but the sugar attracts slugs. Can't win.

Duh duh duhhhhhh!!!
