I took another stupid online test, and I am a cool nerd

This one at least made me chuckle a little bit. On the inside.

I took a stupid online test and Yes, I am a biologist

Are you also? Take the test, try it out. Who knows? Okay, my beef is that the author of the test has the typical zoocentric view of things. Only one question pertaining to fungi? (It's about kingdoms, how passe )
And about 5 of 30 about neurons and such. I'm not sure how long I'm going to leave that little test on here. Maybe I'll have to write up a mycology test. Are you a mushroom? Click here to find out!
Okay, rant over.

Check out this little gadget

I haven't been doing as much mycologizing as entomologizing recently. And on top of that, I've just been busy busy busy. So the cool item I'm posting has little to do with mycology or Alabama. If I may direct your attention to the bottom of the page (press "end" to take the short cut), you'll see a nifty little device for showing off all the states or countries you've visited, as I demonstrate. You can then click on this link, or the one at the bottom to create one for yourself.

I did get to see some interesting bugs and fungi on a trip to Florida last month, and hopefully I'll get some pix up soon.

Why didn't I eat the boletes?

Howdy y'all,
It's been a while, but here's an interesting cautionary tale which may explain why I didn't eat the boletes. As the wise old saw goes, "there are old mycologists, and there are bold mycologists, but there are few old, bold mycologists".
