I know most of us here have heard things like this, so what are the funniest 'misinformations' you've gotten about magic mushrooms before? For me, I guess i always laughed when people in high school would talk about 'hydro' shrooms being the most potent, 'Just like hydro bud, right?' :eusa_eh:

What made me think of this was a guy I know who is a recovering heroin addict/sketchy dealer was recently telling me about how mushrooms are grown in 'huge rooms, where the wind blows spores all through the room onto the dirt, and its got to be completely dark. then 2 days later mushrooms appear!' :amazed:

So, anybody else out there hear some wacky/untrue things about shrooms? Feel free to share!

Nice subject. People who have never looked up information on our magic mushrooms or have never seen them obviously say some crazy shit. I've heard a few times people saying that they make you trip because they are poisioning your body. Also, that they all grow on shit and the blue ones are better :P

I have many friends that still believe mushroms swell your brain, and the visuals you get are form when your brain touhes your skull... LOL

Haven't gotten around to cleaning up that slight bit of misinformation yet..

Nice ones..that brain swelling reminds me of the folks that said that mushrooms and lsd make your spinal cord bleed? Or something along those lines...and that flashbacks are when the 'scabs' on your spinal cord come loose! Amazing how people come up with this stuff.

The ones that get me are people who ask if they can snort or shoot them up! Shit, I wouldn't want mycelium growing out my nose. LOL Or in my blood stream as far as that goes.

I often hear people say that caps are more potent than the stems.

Someone was also trying to tell me that you can smoke shrooms. :lol:

Someone once told me that the white dots on the bright red mushrooms are Arsenic and you gotta scrape them off or they'll kill you. LOL. They're not. Are they? ;)

"You see, those are the psilocribin [sic] crystals there, they are what you get off on" he said, pointing to vermiculite flakes.

"Wow" I replied. I didn't feel like correcting him as I was wondering if he was more curious about whether I could. Sometimes it's good not to clarify.

Was also told you get new pot strains by cutting seeds in half and sticking different ones together. Trust me, it doesn't work. That and grafting hops on a pot plants' cut stem for THC active hops.

Lots of people around here are obessed with bruising. They think the ones "dripping blue goo" have the strongest effects. I've tried calling bs, but no one ever listens.

i've heard that the shrooms weren't the right kind b/c they had black stuff (spores) on the cap...
2 hours later that same kid leaves the show we were at and ends up contimplating life ontop of an empty parking deck in the middle of down town for 2 hours... lol

A while back, before ever reading anything on the web or on these forums, one of my buddys had told me that all i needed to do to grow mushrooms was to simply sprinkle some spores onto a rice crispy treat.:amazed:

1. I had a friend who sold these mushroom caps (for use in soup) he bought at the grocery store to a girl who claimed to have tripped tons of times. She had a patch of amanita muscarias stitched onto her bookbag. He made her beleive that they only work if you smoke along with them.
2. Another friend asked me if I grew hydro or organic 'shrooms.
3. One of my high school teachers told the class of how LSD can kick in 40 years later while you are driving your kids to school and make you drive off a cliff.

HAHA! Ya I did the same thing when I was really young and knew nothing about shrooms besides you eat them. I was already trippin balls and thought it was a good idea.
