I've never needed it, but I'll just go with the little blue pill, kthanks.

Yeah, you had me through the first part of that statement. But I think I'll pass.

So it's a psychotropic drug that also give you a raging erection - what could possibly go wrong!

You should see what hot dogs are made of, man.

Cordyceps. It's called Cordyceps.
 
2012-08-19 12:10:43 PM
Yeah, we know, we've had at least one thread about this already.
 
2012-08-19 12:13:21 PM
You could combine that with Jimson and have yourself a serious party.

/A stabby, erect, party that last for days.
 
2012-08-19 12:14:24 PM
I already read about it in National Geographic.
 
2012-08-19 12:14:29 PM
Amazing what people will pay for the ability to... splort.
 
2012-08-19 12:14:59 PM
Uh wow.

You can buy Cordyceps at your local GNC?

10 hours of the best sex of your life, and when you come down you're naked in the Panda enclosure at the National Zoo with a bunch of bleeding pandas? I mean that happened to somebody else.

At least it doesn't kill a noble endangered animal. Go with little blue, I've heard that it works.

I feel like this was an episode of the x-files.

Taking their argument to the next level, "They told me about a German man who didn't take yarsagumba when he had the opportunity and the next day his teeth fell out and he got leprosy and his wife left him and he got buried by a rock avalanche. Then they told me about an American who took it and the next day he seduced a beautiful woman and started a business and became incredibly powerful and famous. They were basically telling me that if I didn't take it I was going to die and that they wouldn't respect me and I would have bad karma so they wouldn't talk to me again."

/In other words, it does absolutely nothing, except make you feel like puking, and making you a chump for paying through the nose for useless crap like this, just like rhino horn powder that does nothing. farking stupid ass people will buy anything. I used to get mad at the rhino poachers, but they are just trying to make a living. Now I'm more upset with the retards who actually are moranic enough to believe that eating a rhino horn gives you an erection.

I prefer skunk urine mold fungus myself, and so does my lady friend.

And you thought bath salt zombies were bad....
Wait till you're nude on a highway overpass with a Himalayan rape monster!

What worries me about these kinds of stories is that someone, somewhere, once looked at a dead, fungus covered caterpillar and said, "I want that in my mouth."

ftfa: When Zuckerman stumbled outside he found Pasang and friends "on the ground convulsing and foaming at the mouth, looking like they were being electrocuted."

Oh boy. Sign me up.

So did I. They had an amazing series of photos of people harvesting it from incredibly steep slopes.

You mean there's no venture capitalism involved yet? Think about the rows upon rows of caterpillars purposely infected and held in little corrals until their brains melt and their skulls explode.

/yes, skulls.
 
2012-08-19 12:47:03 PM
$800? Does that include a smoking jacket and a case of Dos Equis?
 
2012-08-19 12:47:22 PM
That headline is a boner killer.

Unlikely. The fungus and caterpillars are pretty much unique to the Tibetan plateau.

Just how impotent are Chinese men? I'm getting the impression they can't get it up at all unless they snort the most disgusting bodypart of the most endangered species they can find.

Plus, given the growing gender imbalance, it's not like they've got anyone to use it on anyway.

/hot Chinese girl thread, anyone?

I'm closing in on 50 and still waiting for my libido to start going down.

I don't understand why a man would want boner pills. Women sure as heck don't give a damn about sex. If you no longer have those stupid urges that waste time and money, you'd think that would be good thing.
 
2012-08-19 01:57:36 PM
My wife hates caterpillars. When she was 6 years old she got some fellar's toxins all over her finger, so she just hates them now. I told her this headline to let her know even those guys have their own fears. She instantly knew the thing I was describing from her childhood in Shanghai, and the literal translation of the Chinese word for these things is "worm in winter, grass in summer". Although, as she pointed out, there are many varieties of this fungal phenom, and she was not specifically schooled in the Himalayan variety described herein.
