The North Entrance to Big Cypress Florida
    #1777850 - 08/04/03 12:06 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

Hello Shroomers,

Last week i took a trip across the state and on the way home we took backroads; and the road went along the northern entrance of the great Big Cypress Indian Reservation...

Right when i saw the sign for the reservation i noticed a few cows out there grazing along their shroomy pastures and then moments later came the stench...for about a five minute stretch of road the air smelled of death and stink.  My first assumption was that maybe the indians make beef or beef jerky and i figured maybe just decomposing cow corpses; the smell along the road soon subsided and when we came across the first small gas station and touristy place i decided it was a good time to stop and ask the locals what the smell was.

So we sparked up some conversation with a local man and when i asked him he paused for a few seconds before telling me the story (of which i still do not completely understand);

He said that they spray down the fields with human shit!

I was just like  ":shocked: no way..."

He said that normally you would never smell it, but sometimes during the summers on real hot days the shit goes stinky!

Now, i figured that the human shit was treated somehow, at least that is how he described it...

Any more info on this topic would be mushroom appreciated.

Thank you

And keep shroomin,
GGreatOne234

He was white. And his wife was black. Neither were indian.

Throughout the country of China i observed human shit including used tampons and toilet paper planted in their vegetables and scattered throughout the water buffalo fields...

Maybe mjshroomer will know about this...

There is one thing i cannot stand and that is a lier. These people were both artists and they owned a small ceramic statue botique next door to the gas station and we spent $20 in their store and i have their business card...

They knew i was from sarasota and this town is the artist capital and circus capital of the state...if these people were lieing to me i would take the 3 hour drive back to the place just to let them know that i did not appreciate being lied to; i have big respect for Big Cypress and i would go back to the reservation to tell them about this. I have stayed on the property before during the NYE 2000 phish show; they know to be polite to the phish hippies if they want us to come back...

Keep shroomin,
GG

He was saying that the waste was first treated with chemicals and then dried...sprayed onto the field during the winter and the cattle are not let onto the sprayed field until the summer-time...well this is certainly confusing...

Sorry to go alittle off topic, but, you went to that show at big cypress? I downloaded and it was the most amazing phish show I have ever heard. Damm your lucky, how was it live? I can only imagine.

Anyway, why would they use human waste? Would it be to enrich the land? Or to keep people off the pasture?

They don't use human waste for fertilizer in the US, because of the concentrations of heavy metals we tend to shit out.

Yep, Milorganite is treated human sewage.

I have a friend whose family would use it on their lawn. One of the side effects was that they would have little tomato plants sprouting all over their lawn all summer. I guess those tomato seeds are pretty tough.

Happy mushrooming!

from what i hearing, they use it around my area of california experimentaly.

i would think, due to the nature of heavy metals, they would not be hard to prosess out.

Attn PWN hunters: If you should come across a bluing Psilocybe matching P. pellicolusa please smell it.
If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.

They do the same thing in Texas. Last week I was at my buddies 2000 acre ranch and when we went to the river I smelled this awful smell...he explained that they ship in human excrements from Houston and spread all over the pastures. The fileds were very green and healthy...I was so overwhelmed by the stench that I didnt get into why they did this...I guess to promote greener fields...I did find a shitload of shrooms out there...they werent cubes, but from a post I replied to a week or so ago apparently they were Pan Cyans...I am going back in a week or so and going to harvets some of them and take some prints and pics for ID.

You know, guys, they *do* treat this stuff. It's really no nastier than any other kind of manure you could put on your lawn or garden.

It's all true GG. They use human doo-doo (not to be confused with doo, who is a human, but whose wife sometimes calls him a worthless piece of shit ) :wink:.
We have it sprayed on our soybean fields. It's free. It supposedly adds nutrients to the soil. I know the beans turn green as hell after they're sprayed. I think we're gonna stop having it done though, because, as mentioned earlier, if the temp and conditions are right, it stinks like hell. And since they're so willing to give it away for free, I'm wondering if it's really as safe as they say. I've heard reports of heavy metal build-up in the soil.
We also get mushroom compost spread on the fields occasionally. It helps the soil structure, but that shit can smell bad sometimes also.

doo

BTW, I sure would like to send a Thai cube print to a certain someone, but I don't know where to send it......... :wink:........ :grin:
