      @Melle Mellowski . Thanks for the information but I find it sort of funny that you tell me to not take everything a stranger says on the internet seriously all the time...after you took my comments seriously. I was partially joking with my comments ;-;

    • Melle Mellowski

      ​@TheLordOfToast u seem a bit prudish, or very young, but heads up! because it's not everything l i t e r a l l y about sex, it's more like almost (see i already don't just say "everything") everything can be broken down to sex. evolution? ye more like what does help you to have more sex than everyone else in your species. bacteria - well ye they reproduce by cell division, but even bacteria sometimes extrude parts of their cell to other bacteria and exchange plasmids (have a read and google "bacterial conjugation", the pictures are hilarious), so yeah even bacteria might have "sex" at some point of their existence. you like fruits? well newsflash pal, you're eating genitals of plants. the white, eatable tissue of a coconut is called endosperm. btw we are discussing this below a video displaying a variety of fungae genitals. a chemical you use in DNA extraction is called spermidine (take a wild guess how it smells). if you want to study biology, go for it, it's fun. but don't expect to earn your living by looking at some plants of delving through the ocean. you'll most likely end up in some kind of super lame lab where you will do the same sh*t day in day out. i've seen phds doing analysis of drinking water. and for my closing words, don't take everything some stranger on the internet might say so serious

    I am both fascinated by and love the look of fungi. I love going out and looking for them and have many guides that i read. My favorite is “North American Mushrooms” by Dr. Orson K. Miller. Of all the species, the stinkhorn to me looks the coolest. Definitely not the smell though! I like the look of the white latticed veil.

  • Jonathan Smith

    Can we just talk about how the actual body of fungi are a bunch of strands, and the actual physical part we all see (mushrooms) is just their fruiting body!?! Like that has always astounded me for some reason.

    I found some stinkhorns growing near a tree when i was playing outside, probably 8 or 9 years old. The first thing i did when i saw it was lean down and smell it. It was actually so horrible to me at the time that the rest of the memory is blocked out in my mind. I remember actually getting scared hahahahahaha

  • Miri Kira

    I love stinkhorns! I picked a ton of eggs this summer. 3 of them literally came out of their eggs in my house. Jesus Christ, the smell! I mean I already knew the smell is bad because I touched one and smelling my fingers made me gag and the smell went away after 3 days. The eggs are delicious though. Slice, salt generously, add pepper and fry in abit of oil. You can keep the gel to use as a face mask. It's amazing. My favorite mushroom ever.

    I ran across one of those horrid smelling things one November, while out looking for where the local deer were passing through or hanging out during the afternoon. I first thought something had died and was decomposing there in among the little Sumac bushes. Surprised me a lot when all that stench was just from one little weird looking fungus. Looked like a bleached, half-dried Morel mushroom, but one could never get those two confused for very long! Whew, what a powerfully nasty odor!

      @Lauren I could smell it from several meters away. Kinda like a cadaver but not really. Made me expect a dead animal anyway, maybe the size of a rabbit. It wasn't exactly a jump scare when I found it but I definitely gave it a weird stare for a good few seconds :)

    when you find the eggs in woods they re gelatinous and unpleasant ; supposedly edible at this stage but I ve never been tempted.As he said they stink once grown: the files cluster on the shaft and when you chance on them the flies take flight, so you re smelling horrid aroma, whilst being swarmed .

      @Quenry I assumed he meant 'Das Kleine Kreuterbuch" (1543) by Renaissance botanist Leonard Fuchs. Merely because the herbal by famous medieval nun Hildegard von Bingen talks a lot about plants used for abortions, but not a lot about parties.
      Also of note, the steamy "flowery language" (pardon the pun) in the botanical writings of Joseph Banks, the botanist who accompanied James Cook on his first voyage to the Carribbean on the ship Bounty in 1768-1771.

    Fungi are equal parts horrifying and amazing, have a mix of eye-pleasing and repulsive features, like the lacy tendrils dangling from the stinkhorn's penile head, and you'll want to preserve the structures and colors for posterity, all the while wishing God would drop an old flammenwerfer full of fuel onto your lap to flash-fry those mycelium threads before they wake up Cthulhu.

    I love how right after he says “Oof, I’m sorry.” a third mushroom rises in a way that makes it look like it’s checking the other mushroom to see if it’s okay. 😂

    When the steam corn is growing from the soil and ejects it slime the innuendos are very comical.

    TRUE STORY Half an hour ago I happened upon this video (I've seen it before, but it came on after something and I love ze). Fifteen minutes ago I hauled in some stuff from my car and walked around the outside of the house...and found a ?outbreak?, ?stand?, ?village? right up against my house. Serendipity or Synchronicity in my life is a real thing.

    I am glad you raise the problem, sometimes can you be afraid to blow it especially if it's at the tip of your tongue but sometimes do you simply have to suck it all in and bite the bullet, on other times can you maybe grab the root of the problem and with a stroke, let it all come to you. :-)

    I got a load of firewood from a different guy last year. All of a sudden in the summer the outside of my house smelled like ROTTING MUSHROOM ASS. I had no idea what those things were until this video!! And they came up crazy quick, every day there was a fresh rotting mushroom ass at my door. I sprayed them with vinegar. Never again.

    these shrooms look like something out of "the thing" one of the good ones tho, with an 18 year old with the most gorey mind making the practical effects, not the one with bad CGI.

    "Some are strong enough to push through asphalt." Reminds me of an old X-FILES episode. The mushrooms would pop out of people's chests, and anyone nearby would inhale the spores. Then the cycle repeats... It's been a couple decades. My memory could be off.
