Speaking of indoors, anyone else get the impression that the walls are breathing?

Elegy: Speaking of indoors, anyone else get the impression that the walls are breathing?


Why stay indoors? We always head out into Nature, it's much more enjoyable.
Last time, we floated the river on kayaks. It was rather intense. Didn't see another soul all day long.
Right in the midst of our "trip" a huge desert thermal hit us right in the middle of the river. It was about 150-200 yards wide, and lifted a huge column of dried tree leaves into the air around us.
It was like the goddamn Rapture had hit us.

Semi-CSB on\

My college adviser was (and still is) one of the last, true hippies.  Very long hair, constantly in hemp, Native American print vests, perpetually mello and exuding a flower-child vibe. Fantastic and incredibly smart lady who got along with everyone as near as I could tell.

I took her mycology (fungus) class and one Friday she suggested that each of us take some time to go into the wood to look at the different types of fungi.  The class professional brown-noser made sure to comment in Monday's lecture that she had taken the suggestion but she had a question.

Brown-noser: "Dr. EC, have you ever seen blue spots on mushrooms before?"
Dr. EC: "Blue spots, red spots, once I saw a room full of rainbows."

It was all I could do to keep from laughing while brown-noser sat there baffled.

I really need to get a dry suit, I haven't been  kayaking for a few weeks now.=(

Most experienced stoned glider owners know this, and carry a bag of 'srooms whenever they fly. You can create your own thermals.

They didn't reveal that.
Your headline is total bullshiat, but who cares, right? It's just journalism!!
The mushrooms don't change the weather any more than than a person does when he or she coughs, or if you were to waft around a small piece of cardboard!

Ya know why soaring aficionados wear those goofy hats?

That headline is full of win. Good jorb stubby.

CSB: last time I did shrooms, I was rolling around on the couch screaming into a pillow. Then I became Cool Willy, the raspy voiced mellow mood-setting DJ bringing Bay Area listeners the best smooth jazz. My roommates were amused at my rambling nonsense about nonexistent music while I yelled into a slobbery wet pillow.

End CSB

*imagines the article as written by someone who is on an eighth of shrooms*

Mushrooms control the weather, and it's like they're a part of the bigger picture, like all of us.  We're all in this interlocking life structure on a rock hurtling through space around a massive ball of fusion.  Zoom out, and we're like a cell in this superorganism.  And what is reality?  If the consciousness of every individual constructs its own reality, can we really know if anything is actually real?  I'm watching this whole thing unfold from out of my body, watching myself from above...

So we're not responsible for global climate change after all!! It was those darned mushrooms all along.  Looks like Mario was on the right track.

Nobody uses the word "weather" at this scale, not that I can remember. Sometimes the "actual" definition of a word is much more important than what is defined by a dictionary. This headline is very misleading. This news source uses the wrong word for a tiny amount of sensationalism. Can't they just tell the truth?

Anyways, I'm pretty sure a scientist would use the word "climate" or "micro-climate".
I have read papers (or, rather, reviews) on spore dispersal, they didn't use the word "weather".

I'll be sad when they stop breathing. Think of all they stories they could tell!
