    destroying angel

    This has nothing to do wth art, other than I plan to draw it. They grow locally an have the name for a reason. "Amanita bisporigera", AKA Destroying angel. Growth over 24 hours. There is probably enough there to kill a hundred people. They're so deadly because stupid people eat them, then get a stomach ache. The stomach ache goes away and they think they survived it. But, it destroys the liver. Unless a spare liver is laying around it's cyanide city, deadsville, light at the end of the tunnel, game over.

    The last time I kept an open mind,
    my brain fell out and the dog grabbed it.
    Now it's full of dirt, toothmarks, and dog slobber.
    No more open minds or dogs for me.www.gms9810.com/

    Man, we had those in my yard as a kid. Knew never to eat any, but never knew they were so bad.

    Critical health warning. Yeesh. . .

    Yup, they be bad. Soe kids died because of them here back in the 90s. They were inexperienced city kids. High price to pay for a stupid mistake.

    Yes they're persistent, they sure are interesting and pretty though. It's gotten really big this morning. Last night the little people moved in.
