Timothy Leary knew this back in the 1950s.

I love shiitake mushrooms.I buy them dried in bulk.I tried growing them on a log but didn’t have great results.I think that I didn’t keep the log moist enough.
Oyster mushrooms are so delicious, sometimes I luck out and find some growing in the woods.Morels grow wild here and they are the best.The locals call them “ dry land fish.”

As in magic mushrooms? Have you seen that episode of skins when effy is on them? Any healthy food makes you less depressed. So does exercise and masturbation. Antidepressants don’t do much for me, like trying to get high from vitamins.

Does depression even exist? It can’t be measured on a pet scan? Or if it can I really think doctors should use that before handing over antidepressants. A gp gave me antidepressants and they aren’t even psychiatrists.

What symptoms of depression do you have? You’re always going to have low self esteem if you compare yourself to superior people.

There’s always going to be superior people. You can’t kill them all.

When you start a thread like this you HAVE to include a polite disclaimer sentence.

The statement that you dont mean THOSE kinda "mushrooms", but regular old pizza topping type mushrooms.

Psychedelic mushrooms are famous/notorious for being "mood altering" for obvious reasons. While any mental health benifits of regular edible mushrooms in the grocery store are far less obvious. So you know readers will make jokes about that if you dont put a disclaimer up front.

Pineapple on pizza is awesome.

Discovered that recently when someone bought us pizza at work.

Before that I considered the notion of pineapple on pizza to be ....HERESY most foul!
