I learned some interesting stuff in Biology II today--other than jokes from Bio Prof.
A single fungus can produce up to a million or even a trillion spores. A spore from Louisiana can wind up in Arkansas.
Their mycelium can spread out for acres and acres. Enormous. All part of the same organism, too.
Can we say horror story fodder? You see plenty of horror stories about bacteria and virus induced illnesses and things like that, but fungus?
Just imagine the people from the Mushroom Kingdom (Toad from Mario Brothers), turning evil and running rampart on the streets of NYC...
Attack of the Evil Mushrooms!
