On FungusPosted: January 31, 2012
I love interesting articles that come out of left field. This particular one is about the discovery and etymology of a misunderstood and misidentified strain of fungus:
Making growth media for fungi is really just feeding them a dish they like to eat. So, on a hunch, Scott bought a bottle of Canadian Club. “I put maybe a shot of whiskey in a liter of agar and filled the petri plates with it,” Scott says. “That made it grow a hell of a lot faster.”
It also features an excellent history of our tools of inebriation.
