Now, if it had been over 9000, that would have been something.

I tried some of those once.

It was awesome.

Then I tried those again.

For five hours, I thought my reflection was attempting to exit the mirror, kill me and assume my identity.

I'll never do that again.

Yea you uh, want to stay away from a mirror when taking these sorts of journeys.

Also, I found one of these growing under a big old tree near my house.

I just stared at it for about five minutes remembering what happened last time, and walked away shaking my head giggling like a retard.

These cops should have learned to estimate in 2nd grade.

Ok --that was funny.

Well done subby,Bravo
 
2009-11-14 09:42:07 AM  
Why count 70% of the crop? It is a waste of time. Wouldn't a total weight or an estimate based on counting approximately 10% have been sufficient?

When I did them, KBTX TV, Channel 39 out of Houston decided to show the most amazing commercials I had ever see in my life. I laughed, I cried, I was one with Joe Monte of Joe Monte Chevrolet.

Police said Friday afternoon that they have stopped counting after about 70% of the mushrooms were counted.

If they stopped counting then how do they know that they were at 70%?

/feel sorry for those 800 mushrooms

That's a fly agaric (A. muscaria) which, while it can induce some hallucinogenic effects, has such a wide variability in toxicity and effect based on season, substrate, and person, that they're just plain dangerous to take. Muscimol, muscazone and ibotenic acid are the main tox. components, as opposed to the typical "magic" mushrooms of the Psilocybin and Panaeolus genera.
Those contain psilocybin and psylocin in far more consistent quantities.

They are alive and well in Raleigh. Great pizza, but always too damn crowded. Lilly's is better.

MDI_BugMan:

Righto! That's the one that causes the illusion of being very large or small. They were popular in a part of Siberia where they didn't grow, so they were expensive. The active agents enter the urine, so 'stead of passin' a j, they would pass the cup!

if they stopped counting, then how do they know 70% were counted?

I take care of a small cattle operation here in S. TX.
During certain times of the year there are thousands of psilocybe cubensis to be found in the fields and manure piles. I have caught teenagers picking shrooms before. I usually give them the your trespassing speech and threaten to call the sheriff on them if I catch them again. Doing so is for their own safety, the bulls will/could run their azz down and stomp them into the ground...Back in the day the wife and I would spend hours in the fields eating caps/having fun. We both agree we are too old now and not interested in watching the cows hover about, or be lectured by them about their socilalist/marxist views of the world this aint India moooooster.

Just weight it, faster and is more helpful on how much drugs they have. I mean they count cocaine in Kilos not in how many leaves they have.

Oh, and if you need a field hand, let me know. I have cattle experience and a HotShot.

Actually, that was me in the mirror. I'll get you next time.

I'm surprised they did not make up some ridiculous street value to go along with their report.

You have to go to Phnom Penh to get the real deal.

OK, if they quit counting, how do they know they only counted 70% of them? Conversely, if they know that 8000 is about 70% of the total, why not just say "an estimated 11,500"?
 
2009-11-14 12:49:23 PM  
Love 'em. Make a point to do them at least once a year. I'd trade the legality of alchol for them in a heartbeat.

Don't get people who say "Had a bad trip, will never do them again." Yeah I've had bad trips. But I've also had bad relationships too but you don't see me swearing off p*ssy.

I've learned to avoid a few things after my mushroom experiences.

Mirrors
Watches
Cell Phones

"Police said Friday afternoon that they have stopped counting after about 70% of the mushrooms were counted."

They could have just divided by 7, and multiplied by 10. Past a certain point, it's not like it matters.

//also, aren't these things charged by weight anyways?
 
2009-11-14 03:08:46 PM  
I would do mushrooms every single day if I could...

Best high ever, IMO.
