It’s been a minute! Happy Friday the 13th! Here are your stories for the week.
Mushrooms will literally save the world
Drought, famine, wildfires. Everything. Ya know it’s coming. The bible says so if you believe in that and the science says so if you believe in that. If you don’t believe in anything than you don’t really care anyway so move on. This article in Science.org tells how having a wide variety of fungi could be key to survivals of ecosystems. Really neat stuff.
DON’T INJECT MUSHROOMS
A lot of dumb people out there making a bad name for psilocybin and here is another one. This dude made a tea from mushrooms then injected it into his bloodstream. It didn’t go well.

They always say the best bartenders don’t drink, but I’d argue that the best drug dealers at least try the product their pushing to differentiate between the positive and negative ones.
