  • May I request more fungus related videos? Fungi are basically like plants, but way more fascinating, like how worms and mollusks are more interesting than insects in most cases. In my humble opinion anyway.

  • Now why the fuck did PLthrow decide to show me this while eating? And why did I watch? What a waste of food...
