WTF are they smoking?

They make you yawn and laugh.

The active ingredient in hallucinogenic mushrooms produces a variety of symptoms in the user, including euphoria, creative thinking, sensation of insight, intense emotional sensitivity, time perception alteration, change in consciousness, closed-eye visuals, intense feelings of fear, anxiety and confusion

Looks like they completely forgot to mention "death". I wonder what they're smoking...

You know, you can die from eating too many carrots too. I wonder what the street value of a bag of carrots is?

If they were one of the psychedelic mushroom species that contained a high amount of baeocystin, maybe. Even then it'd take an awful lot to be fatal.

Psilocybin doesn't kill. But don't say it too loudly, the machine elves might hear...

And I suspect you'd yuke them up long before you ate enough to
get more than queasy.

I never ate 'shrooms, but I had friends who did, and they always
complained about the stomach cramps afterwards.

"Mushrooms are similar to LSD in the fact that they cause people to hallucinate, and like LSD a person can die the first time they use these poisonous mushrooms, especially in the condition that they were in here," said Murfreesboro police spokesman Kyle Evans.

Somebody has been reading way too much government propaganda.

I've had a few that devolved into a self-reinforcing spiral of shame / pain / depression, which I guess qualifies as bad. Nothing quite to the magnitude of Samurai Lincoln attempting to kill me and stuff my head full of parsley, though.

They aren't exactly easy on the stomach. Baeocystin is present in all psychedelic mushroom species, but in much higher concentration in some species, and I believe it can cause respiritory trouble in large enough doses.

Get high before you take them and there shouldn't be any nausea. That always worked back in college, anyway.

It'll mellow ya out a bit, too, maaan.

Death to the muscles in the back of your head, maybe.

Next morning: "Why does my scalp hurt?" *smile* "Oh right, that's why."

They turned me into a newt.

It got better...

Today a young man on mushrooms realized that all matter is just energy condensed to a slow vibration, that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death, life is only a dream and we are the imagination of ourselves.

This is the best description I've ever heard of shrooms
 
2009-06-12 10:07:32 AM  
Meh. I was queasy for about 1/2 hour after I ate them, so I laid down for a few minutes. After that, the good times rolled til about 2 in the morning!

I only have one thing to say....

BOOOOO! HISSSS!! Mushrooms are from the Earth, man... Of course, their brethren also think you can die from eating pot brownies too...


Fargin icehole pig farkers..

/next time, don't save my life.
 
2009-06-12 10:08:39 AM  
Why does no one ever mention that you can also die from alcohol the first time you use it?

/mushrooms are 99% harmless
//just ensure you have a trip sitter

Saw Phish this past week, which exposed me to ultra-high levels of filthy hippieness. One of them bumped into me while going up the steps at the arena. He said, "Sorry bro!" Luckily I got a hold of his dreadlocks, swung him around over my head, and threw him onto the stage where Mike Gordon pulverized him with his bass. Mike gave me the thumbs up, which got me so excited that I launched into my trademark Roundhouse-Tornado. By the time I settled down, there was nothing left of those hippies except decayed teeth and broken shoelaces. Dirtbags.

"Drugs of an unknown type, a felony amount of marijuana and several thousands of dollars in cash and several guns were also recovered from the home," said Evans.

WTF is that supposed to mean? They don't know what kind of drugs they are, but they know that they are illegal? Really?

Thanks, Mr. Police Man for saving people from feeling good. Much obliged.

Me as well. Last time was in Jamaica and I ate a giant cap... Triped for ten hours, almost total freakout. Fortuantly, gf is a great trip captain.

Such hyper drama b.s.

Why I always read about really weird shiat happening in Murfreesboro? What's with that place?

I have to thank these brave warriors in blue for protecting us from mushroom chocolates. Just think, someone could have actually been on the trips or whatever it's called at a music festival. There might be children there.

What kind of America would it be if people could just sit around farked up listening to music together?

No, you can die if you eat the wrong type of mushrooms. Better to legalize it so the market can be sure of what they're getting.

IME shrooms are highly unpredictable. Sometimes they're funny, sometimes they're trippy and on rare occasions they do tend to rip your stomach apart. I don't think I ever died from them though.

With the creepy organic food that was there last year the bars would be an improvement. Then again, with all of the rain I'm sure that the occasional stray power cord will cause for some psychedelic visuals.

Really, french fries are not fries if they're made from a soy by product and lightly baked by solar energy.

Oh_Enough_Already: You know what else can cause those "symptoms?"

Being alive.


Um, no.

If you don't know for yourself, there's nothing I can say that will change your mind. But...no, no, no.
