Jayne is relatively new here and may have missed some of the subtle, and potentially fatal, aspects of this discussion.
First off, Rider and Flash are NOT talking about run of the mill, grocery store button mushrooms. They refer to one (or a very select few) varieties of wild mushroom which you must know of and find on your own.
Pick the wrong 'shroom (and as I recall from an earlier Flash post, there is one which looks 'almost' identical), brew it up, drink it and you die. Do not pass Go, do not collect $200, no Get Out of Jail Free card. Just fertilizer for your local cemetary.
Those of us old enough to remember the '60's should also know some folks who overdid the LSD thing and have flashbacks to this day.
I'm as excited as Bobp is about the possible application of psylocibin to clusters, but let's not do anything rash, ok folks?
We like you, Jayne. We want you to hang around for a while. Much as I want to know if there really is a life after death, I'm not looking for volunteers to check it out first hand.
