LLIP DER says:

Are all mushrooms that bruise bluish contain psilocybin ? Will any mushrooms that bruise bluish kill you ?

Terry says:

When eating mushrooms, do we eat the whole thing or just the cap/top part?

Xander says:

Zeb Alford says:

Paul ! I completely believe you brah I was listening to your explanation about the cows and seeing them a week later all dead! I did the same thing in Scottsdale AZ 85251 I had a crystal clear dream I won the power ball in 2005 I never play I decided to buy a ticket I used numbers of my life 12, 18, 8, 10, 9, but anyway I said Zeb you are absurd it’s not mathematically possible only a wishful fool would think that they have a chance in hell so I throw the ticket away and Wednesday night it hits and I’m walking to the store next morning and the news is there someone got all the numbers except the power ball $76,0000 went unclaimed and I then hated my actions because of my own self doubt. But now I would rather have lost a whole years pay to realize there is folds in the space time and there are these rare glimpses that do occur. I am also a fellow mycologists and tripper I would love to study under you even the most mundane of jobs I’ll take ! Here in MS we get mostly the cubanesis I have come across the gallerina looking for Chanterelles though great vid and thank you for you’re fearless wisdom!

JoJo Mama says:

Holy smokes!I've always been under the impression that any mushrooms growing on wood are NEVER poisonous…man,did I learn something here,THANKS!!!

zezt zezter says:

I like you Paul Stamets but this is such a badly filmed little lesson, especially when it is warning of actual death if we confuse these two mushrooms! RIGHT FROM THE GET GO THE CAMERA SHOULD BE VERY CLOSE TO THE MUSHROOMS AND SHOW EXACT DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE GOOD ONES AND THE BAD ONES (FOR US) Instead of patronizing us not to pick them. we WOULD and COULD if we had the proper information like you Paul!

Gunplay Gaming says:

On the bright side looks like theres more of the magic one 🙂

Oh God, imagine being the guy hunting for edible mushrooms back in old times and popping 1 or 2 "magic" ones by accident. That'll make for a crazy walk back to your village lol scary stuff.
