So I picked two lovely Amanita muscaria var. formosas yesterday and from what I've been reading they aren't the horrid danger that common "knowledge" claims. The one ID book I have does say that the US versions cause more physical problems then the Siberian ones, but gives no evidence to back it up. The author isn't one of us, and I kind of feel that he's just covering his own ass. Any one have any thoughts on this, or any thing else related to these lovely sacraments?

On another note, got a little story to share...

Over the weekend I went to a party and carried with me Professor Potter's Miracle Elixer, the medicine you need to keep going ALL NIGHT LONG! When asked what was in it, "Every stimulant I had in my house I could legally share. Mugwort, damiana, yerba mate, Inkos Energy Tea, coca leaf, bee pollen, raw sugar, ginger, and caffeine pills. I'm known as an explorer of the outer spheres and people should have known better then to take such words lightly, they kept coming back for more...even when I warned them "only need a few sips." Of course the next day people kept coming up and whining "what did you do to me, I was so fucked up, I still haven't slept." I'm rather happy with my formulations, the flavour was splendid and it was bloody potent. I've decided there's been a real need for patent medicines in this modern world, so I'm ordering bulk 4oz jars, designing labels and going into business. I'll be able to circumvent liquor laws at my circus and offer a much healthier variety of alternatives. I can't see anyone building a real case against home made energy drinks being sold along side tea and coffee at a show.

On this note, I was at Lunacy Cabaret in Toronto (best damn show around!) in June and there was a shot girl with a cannabis shot and an herbal ecstasy shot. She gave my friend and I a grassy test tube to split and from 1/2 a tube I had a wonderful warm fuzzy feeling all night long. I don't think there was any alcohol in it and I'm stumped on how to make it. If anyone has any ideas, I'd love to hear. With luck I'll be going back in a few weeks and will try her other flavour and maybe even exchange recipes with her. If you ever end up in TO when their show is playing, make sure to bring an extra 15$, the herbal E was 10 and the other was 5 a shot, and the grass one was more then worth it.
