IS IT TRUE THAT THE MAIL IS WIPING SPORES CLEAN?
    #1645329 - 06/19/03 05:32 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Okay, I received spores from Sporeworks, inoculated jars, and then they sat there for two weeks. No sign of anything. One of the ten jars was contaminated. So, I used another syringe to inoculate them. Now, I have more syringes, and even a mycobag coming in the mail (i am a PF jar man, but i decided i'd try one out). The fuckers sit in a heated rubbermaid tub.
now i am hearing about the postal service zapping the packages. is it that, or is it that my jars didn't get any light? anybody else have this happen? thanks

Sounds fucking weird--don't know what the deal is. Nice avatar by the way, I am wearing that shirt right now.

I never heard of zapping,

You probably should contact sporeworks. seem like bum syringes.

have you bought from sporeworks before? Were they good spores?

last but not least, stick to shroomery vendors that advertise. :smile:

peace

Sporeworks told me that they just had a bad batch of spores. Contact them for replacements. I think people are playing up irradiation. According to an EPA website, only a few zip codes in D.C. are using irradiation. http://www.epa.gov/radiation/sources/mail_irrad.htm

USPS is only irradiating a tiny tiny percentage of the total mail.

Only incoming mail to certain key govt. buildings in certain zip codes in certain cities are being treated.

http://hps.org/publicinformation/ate/q1723.html

For them to even consider treating all the millions of tons of mail this way is extremely cost prohibitive.

yep, it can happen.

Mycelium doesn't need light to grow, just a relatively sterile enviroment with some munchies.

This never happened to me though.

I am close with a person who has a lot of pull at the local Post Office. When I asked this person they laughed at me and said "do you have any idea how many packages we receive and ship out. The only thing that we do with them is put them on a truck and take them off of a truck. Do you know how much it would cost to zap each package, get real"

So I am going with no they do not zap any packages. That is just what I was told.

Besides if they were doing something to the packages, assuming they were able to figure out which ones had spores in them, then every trade or purchase that anyone made would be bunk. More people would be complaining and it would be all over our community.

However something must be going on with your spores if you have tried several different syringes and such and nothing is happening. I hope you are able to find a positive answer to your problem.

Peace

I took this from the USPS website today

**********

USPS CONTINUES TO IRRADIATE GOVERNMENT MAIL

The U.S. Postal Service will continue for the foreseeable future to irradiate letters, flats, Express and Priority Mail with stamps for postage and other packages with stamps for postage destined to government agencies in the ZIP Code ranges 202-205.

Mail from known mailers ? such as Express with meter strips or corporate accounts, Priority mail with meter strips or permit indicia and registered mail ? is not irradiated. At this time, irradiation is the only process used by the Postal Service to sanitize the mail.

Mail that is irradiated may exhibit a discolored (tan-colored) quality, as well as be brittle, show spots on envelopes and make address labels unreadable. Documents bound with glue may have loose pages and some mail may have fused pages. If tape is affixed to address labels, the address will likely not be readable after being irradiated. The type of damage depends on the fiber content of the paper.

Customers and businesses sending mail to ZIP Codes 202-205 can avoid the irradiation process by affixing postage meter strips or permit indicia instead of postage stamps to Express or Priority Mail. The use of corporate accounts for Express Mail or registered mail also is another way to avoid the irradiation process.

**********


So, everyone can relax about the mail. It's not being zapped.

It could be a bacterial contamination rather than a mycological one. The jars might not look like they have anything growing, but there would probably be an (unpleasant) odor in them. Its probably not a good idea to reinnoculate failed jars, as it just increases your chances of contamination and if there is already something growing in there then you have just wasted more spores...anyway, good luck..

yea, talk to sporeworks - the chances are slim that your letter out of hundreds of thousands was zapped, if that is even true - could be govt. bullshit.
