    Isn't it like mushroom hunting season? I had never heard of it, but several people around here do this as a past time. A girl that works for me went out with her parents to find a specific mushroom and then they cooked it up.

    Xvart: That girl's probly getting Morels, they're a "family secret" type of mushroom, Several of my mom's co-workers used to go hunting for those this time of year. An ugly mushroom the Morel, it looks like a brown sea sponge! Supposedly an unforgettable flavor though.

    I have heard that A. muscaria are not always magical, it aparently it depends upon something in their substrate.. I have never seen one other than in books though and we have woods "everywhere" .

    All this talk reminds me, I can probly be safe to put my Shiitake and Enoki mushroom substrate blocks out on the patio and maybe get some real mushrooms instead of eating the damn freeze dried stuff from the grocery store! (i'm on the second floor the teens can't get at them - ha!)

    You have to heat or dry them in order to convert the toxic ibotenic acid into muscimol. You could be totally right, though, I've just never heard that (aside from hearing fly agaric from X location is better than X location), and I've haven't yet experimented much with them. They say that there's no way to know what you'll experience, that there is no rhyme or reason to the effects. Weird. I've never seen a wild one, either. Even if you're not a psychonaut, everyone should appreciate their beauty and history of use in various cultures, especially interesting is the theory that it may be the Soma of Indian legend. Neato.

    SHIITAKE! Oh my god I love them, especially in Cyclone pasta at the Outback. Mmmmm. All this shroom talk is making me smell them lol.

    Um, I know I gonna sound somewhat stupid, but why are the mushrooms magical? I mean the chemical, not what happens. Also, are those jacko'lantern mushrooms posinous? They are small and orange. My brother told me they were and thats why they are colored like that.
