Re: Cause and effect

Has totally worked. Actively improving simple things in my life gives me the feeling of control and that feels good. And I managed to organize for myself a little luxury: I ironed my sheets and all bed-covers and linens. It gives me this extra crispy feeling, when I go to bed. I don't have always time for that, so it is a luxury.

Re: Cause and effect

Have a date tonight.

I am right now not actively looking for someone. I have to many other problems. But the guy asked, he is nice and he managed to suggest something that will be really fun for me: a mushroom museum. That means that he listened to me chatting about mushrooms and gave some thoughts to where to go. This things are rare enough to reward them.

So I am gonna to give some thoughts to my looks tonight and generally try to make it fun for him also.

Re: Cause and effect

The date didn't go so well.

The dude wanted to kiss the whole time and I just didn't want to. At the end he brought me home and wanted immediately to fix the next date and I don't know..... immediately be exclusive and went full-on attack on my time. I didn't like it at all. And then after I suggested to let things develop his response was along the lines "OK for you I will wait as long as I need too, but it is so disappointing for me". This sentence simplified the decision for me. If the dude is sooooo disappointed every time he doesn't get his way.......I just don't want to deal with so much disappointment.

For me was not a lot of new stuff. They tried also apparently to limit any liability and so they labeled a bunch of perfectly edible mushrooms as poisonous. I would also liked to have more details on in which way poisonous mushrooms are poisonous, and how exactly the chemistry works. I mean it is big difference if you just puke a little bit (after Parrot Toadstool) or need a new liver (after Death Cap) or will have a crazy trip with possible psychosis (fly agaric). It is interesting what exactly happens and which components are causing what. It is interesting how the preparation like heating and fermenting works. That leads for example to Lactarius resimus being considered a delicious food, perfect for pickling in russian community and being considered as poisonous in west european community.

The exhibition is for sure good for children or people who aren't so interested in fungi to get some basics.

A part was also about other kinds of fungi like mold and lichen

Below is a summary of this exhibition in media.

https://www.wiesbaden.de/en/culture/...aden/fungi.php
"
The exhibition entitled "Fungi – Food, Poison and Mythology" will be running at Museum Wiesbaden until 5 August 2018. It introduces more than 1,300 fungi, including the giant puffball as well as the scarlet caterpillarclub. Fungi have adopted the most varied modes of life, ranging from cooperation and mutual benefit, as is the case with the lichens, to the exploitation of dead plants, and even a wide variety of parasites and germs. Yellow boletus, button mushroom, and chanterelle are all welcome on our dinner plates. Many another fungal fruiting body can be discovered during a forest walk. It is a well-known fact that not all of them are edible; some are even poisonous. Fungi play important roles in our lives, and are linked with a number of human needs and preferences. Yeasts supply bread, beer, and wine. Even the dreaded mould fungi are beneficial in the development of antibiotics that are vital for our survival. Moreover, fungi can be used for dyeing and for manufacturing precious papers."

Re: Cause and effect

A mushroom museum is not something one has the chance to hear about very often
