paulstamets:

“The Norse warriors were, according to legend, fierce fighters who were able to vanquish enemies with a fury in battle that gave rise to the term ‘bizerk’. Some think their fury was because of their use of Amanita muscaria; others vociferously dispute this. But…..I find that the handles of their swords bear a remarkable, and in some cases, taxonomically correct depictions of this mushroom. A coincidence or evidence ? I have eaten this mushroom, and the induced repetitive motion syndrome falls in line with this legend. The doubters might wish to rethink their skeptism, in my humble opinion. ” -P.Stamets ~ Fungi.net
