I am actually having a lot of fun doing these. Thank you all for the support of these comps. As always the scources are just Wikipedia and some scientific blogs. Cheers.

Well here we are again guys. I took a few
requests from the last one. I hope you all enjoy.

i. wjj. j. one or both of these) which have a
Y hallucinogen's effect in humans. This
particular species contains the highest
consentration of these compounds of
any of the "magic" mushrooms.
Keep in mind that it is illegal to grow, distribute, or consume
magic mushrooms in many countrys. They are however Very
popular, and apparently easy to find illegally if you are willing to
breakage law.
Lion' s Mane

appearance it is entirely edible,
and actually has some properties

scrutiny in medical sciense. While
there is no benefits that are agreed
on by researchers, it is still Very

medicine.
It is a possible treatment for dementia and other brain
deseases, but has not made its way to the pharmaceutical drug
market. However it is considered extremely tasty, so it might be
worth your money to order some to impress yourfriendy.

The interesting thing is, even
though it is not an extremely
tasty mushroom (and depending
on where you find it may contain
arsenic) it does retain its color
no matter what you do to it.

specifically shaped so that when
a raindrop hits it, all of the force

eggs up to a meter or two away
Thanks for your support of these comps, I really
didn' t expect that much interest in mushrooms. I
however do not know how many more of these I will
do, I guess I may just start posting other things and
do another one of these every once in a while.
Hope you guys enjoyed!

Thank you all guys for your help. Now i'm able to post pictures again!! Although, i'm still a bit confused since when i go to my profile and check "my permissions", it still says: "Ability to post pictures in comments: Disabled". So yeah, if someone could give me really brief explanation of what the permissions are, that'd be great.    
   
< here you have a cool .gif as a sign of gratitude for you all.

I posted content solely in an attempt to get enough thumbs to be able to post images. Got first on the front page. Don't worry about it, so long as you don't repost the same content you see every single day and come up with something at least decently original.

It is not the most exiting mushroom too look at, but it may be one of the most important medical mushrooms, besides penicillin. want cooler looking mushrooms? i`l post some in the comments

If you do decide to try something like this, at least make sure to soak them in Salt Water for a while first, there is an Outstanding amount of bugs that live in/on Mushrooms.

This is an American Caesar's Mushroom (or a close relative) you found a young one, that will soon grow into a regular looking mushroom. This is edible, and a close relative the Caesar's Mushroom (the European counterpart to this) was a prized food for the Roman armies. I would however not recommend eating any wild mushroom, but for this one you should be fairly safe if you did decide to.

I thought I was tripping. Looked like something giving birth to a yellow egg out of the ground.   
So I kicked it.

On the third one I misread it as, &quot;This uncommon mushroom grows on dead dogs&quot; and I was wondering why there were so many dead dogs just lying around. It made me sad thinking about it..

everyone is freaking out about the mushroom that can infect insects and other small things....... but if it spread to humans the only thing the "zombies" would do is walk around and eventually settle down, not harming anyone in the process.

it would still be scary as **** tho..........
#123 to #91 - ROTFLcopter **User deleted account** (08/17/2013) [-]
Who cares? I'm not scared about being attacked by infected people, I'm scared of becoming infected myself and having my brain controlled by a fungus and then dying.

the last of us was based on the idea of what if it spread to humans
