Thirty days of suck: VI: we can be heroes

Sorry Bowser, no conquering the Mushroom Kingdom since I ate it.

We rocked down to Electric Avenue & we took it higher.

Merci, fungi.

Tomorrow, one of the other food groups. Not pizza rolls since I ate those, too.

Thanks to one of my common taters, I've learned this:

The genus Amanita contains about 600 species of agarics including some of the most toxic known mushrooms found worldwide. This genus is responsible for approximately 95% of the fatalities resulting from mushroom poisoning, with the death cap accounting for about 50% on its own. The most potent toxin present in these mushrooms is α-amanitin.

The genus also contains many edible mushrooms, but mycologists generally discourage amateur mushroom hunters from selecting these for human consumption. Nonetheless, in some cultures, the larger local edible species of Amanita are mainstays of the markets in the local growing season.

So you have to ask yourself one question: Do you feel lucky?

No wonder my Mario World game won't work anymore.
You ate it, didn't you? :(

BDR, spiders from Mars I can handle, but mushroom people?

if, oh yeah, I've been reading up on my shrooms and have come across stuff like that, and stories about Asian tourists finding a kind of shroom (an amanita, actually, I think) that's eerily similar to an edible kind back home. You can guess the outcome.

laura, it was a bit crunchy. Dammit, now I want to bust out SMB2 and 3. Anyone have a working NES deck?

Silly side bin darkthroning?

I hope you weren't lying down on the sidewalk when you snapped these.

Demeur said...

I'll stick to the store bought variety thank you very much.
And as a matter of fact I think the resident computer geek does in fact have what you're looking for in the way of an NES deck in the closet somewhere.

Out of all the processed crap Americans stuff in their mouths I have to admit that pizza rolls can be a true gourmet experience.

Except when you nuke them too long in the microwave, then its a form of torture.

Randal Graves said...

jim, darkthroning is always serious, seriously.

susan, in Clevelandia? I'll pass on that suicide solution.

demeur, speaking of death popping caps. Vraiment? A working deck? If you could confirm & it's no longer needed, I'll gladly fork over not-that-hard-earned cash.

BB, there's something magical about them, the high sodium & fat content, the makeshift sauce, the bits of mystery meat. Yum.

Dude, always always always bake. Otherwise you're stuck with mini bags of goo.

In all seriousness, I love that school crossing shot. Now if you could rid the area of all those damned socialists, you could make some real money with your art.

Given that one of every thousand shots are halfway decent, by money, you mean a couple of quarters here and there.
