Isn't that the Siberian shaman mushroom that supposedly the legend of Santa Claus is based on?

Heaven forbid the blue hairs that probably make up the lion's share of AZH subscribers take a little journey to the center of their minds. Maybe they'd learn why they've been so uptight all those years.

That leads to one of the best quotes in any wikipedia article ever:""If Santa Claus had but one eye or if magic urine had been a part of his legend, his connection to the Amanita muscaria would be much easier to believe"

It's the magic pee mushroom. Yup. MAGIC. PEE.

I saw one of those shrooms growing in N. Florida the other day.  Recognized it from some, um - scientific research I'd done in the past.  You know; acquiring information about flora, fauna, and fluorescent rainbows.  Decided not to harvest it or look around for others.  Some of that research could have gotten me killed, imprisoned, or worse.

Fungal realities are infinite, they truly never leave your system. Sure they dissipate and you'll pass a piss test as the particles are small enough to pass through the walls of whatever container the piss is in and back into the general world as some know it, but the actual reality of the mushroom stays inside the host.
A case in point, take a man that has never been in a mushroom reality, a man that is fully immersed in a mushroom reality, and one that was once there but believes himself to be 'back', or level-headed as some might call it. Now ask all three to knit some normal socks. The man that has no mushroom interference in his life will refuse the task, the tripping individual will attempt to knit socks but will become obsessed by the glowing pulsating head of the needle as it glides through the air that surrounds the screaming wool, and the man that was once at one with the mushroom but believes he is now 'normal' will take the wool and throw it asunder, setting fire to the rippling fluid walls of his own limited cognition while losing control of time, space-time/colors and any of the savage attack-fish that happened to be drifting through the molecular soup otherwise known as his immediate environment.
I see it all the time, be careful out there.

Encouraging amateurs to identify and consume wild mushrooms is a stupid idea to begin with.  That being said, an increase in accidental psychotropic use here in Arizona couldn't hurt anything.  The majority of elderly inhabitants hallucinate about stuff constantly.
 
2013-09-14 10:59:02 AM
The US Army Survival Manual has basically one page on mushrooms: don't try it, even experts are fooled. They would rather their soldiers die from starvation than try to figure out which mushrooms won't kill them.

Well, it's not inedible.

My National Audubon Field Guide to North American Mushrooms has several terms to describe a given mushroom's edibility:

Choice
Choice, with caution
Good
Good, with caution
Edible
Edible, with caution
Poisonous
Psychedelic

the formosa variation (yellow) grows all over my property in Michigan this time of year.
If you ask me they're as pretty as any wildflower.

they seem to love young aspen groves.

if you're going to eat one of these you better know for sure what you have. These are in the same family and can look similar to death caps, and destroying angel mushrooms. Those are very deadly, be careful.

It really is one of the best travel mags. The photography is second only to National Geographic in terms of skill and beauty. And the state really is something to see. Too bad a good portion of the population is insane and/or suffering from age-induced dementia.

These are not your usual magic mushrooms.

The threshold on these between "no effect", "tripping" and "dead" is a very fine one. Not something to play around with.

Stick with the psylocibes.

Amanita muscaria isn't very likely to kill you (although it has happened), but you have an almost 100% chance of getting incredibly, miserably sick. And the hallucinations are almost universally reported as unpleasant. Plus, it's really easy to confuse them for other mushrooms which really will kill you.

I have absolutely no idea how any article could possibly list them as edible, because they're widely and consistently known as poisonous and hallucinogenic. Any source would list them as such.

But if you get a goat to eat them and then you drink the goat's piss, then you really got something.

Came here to say that, though Amanita muscaria is on the line because it does tend to make people feel sick and can physically harm a person.

It is also eaten in parts of the world, Japan for instance, after being boiled so that the psychoactive compounds are removed.

Shouldn't be on a list of edible mushrooms, not because stuff making you high is bad, but because it's really easy to poison yourself by taking too much of that kind of thing. Also, if you're trying to survive in the wild, that is NOT when you want to be tripping balls. And the Amanitas in particular are easy to confuse poisonous and non-poisonous species - a lot of people die that way.

Here is a GOOD guide to edible mushrooms: http://americanmushrooms.com/edibles1.htm - this first page talks about maitake/hen-of-the-woods, which I've had in my own yard the last two years. They're about the safest mushroom you can find, and they're coming into season any time now, at least here in Central CT. So if you live in the Northeast US (also in Japan, in similar temperate forest areas) check around the base of trees or stumps - especially oaks - the next month or so, and you might just find them. They are about as safe as mushrooms ever get - no poisonous lookalikes whatsoever, known for their taste, really healthy, and absolutely huge; sometimes several grow around one tree, so you can find pounds and pounds of the things at once.

All mushrooms are edible, some only once.
