The Voynich Manuscipt has baffled code-crackers for centuries, so it's fair to say some people would do almost anything to decipher its inscrutable symbols. However, that "almost" likely excludes reading hundreds of pages of hackneyed thriller written by James "not the famous one" Rollins, or even reading an online synopsis of said thriller while being distracted by animated flames. In Asylum-like fashion, James K. Rollins bills The Voynich Project as "an Omega Force thriller," which, of course, should not be confused with James Rollins' popular SIGMA Force series.

The Voynich Project storyline combines Nazi occultists, Carl Jung, "future weapons," Druids and supernatural children. This is noteworthy solely because it inspired Rollins to include ridiculous graphic depictions of all of these elements on his site. There's also a random picture of Ali Larter (identified as "Ali Slater"), and lots of empty space decorated with the text "enter content here." Maybe that's all the Voynich Manuscipt really says, over and over again.

    Get In The God Dang Weight Room, Johnny Manziel!

    Simply put, if I had Johnny Manziel’s physical gifts, you better believe I would be there in the Weight Room, getting to bed early, doing whatever I had to do to be the best possible athlete I could be. I wouldn't be posting on social media about sucking titties. I wouldn't even look at a titty, buddy. I'd look at a titty and see two big footballs.

    Helping Your Real Friends Move

    A real friend doesn't move until the middle of August, ensuring temperatures in the 90s and a humidity that turns boxers into moist balls of ruined cotton.
