You gotta admit.. a good fresh veggie is quite a divine experience...
Hey now let's get more "out there".

I like the taste of mushrooms but won't eat then slimy little buggers. Put them in a prepared dish and just make sure they're large enough to be spotted, avoided or given to my wife.

It's a consisteency/texture thing and they make me wan't to gag. No psilocybin for this guy, that's for sure. It ain't magic!

You would find that the state of the psilocybin mushroom, by the time it's ready for ingestion for hallucinogenic / magical purposes, has a totally different texture ... it could be compared to something like bitter tasting hard / chewy cardboard ... quite disgusting actually and yet strangely worth it.
I know this won't change your mind but just sayin.

Same here, with bacon.

I'm admittedly spiritually-deficient. I love the citrus and avocados I grow, but I can't get all woozy and head-in-the-clouds over the process. I just want to turn them into OJ and guac. And money.
