Is this possible?
    #3201609 - 09/30/04 10:47 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Just came across this picture and wondered if it's real.
It seems quite weird but it was on a university website so i'm wondering.

i should add though that boletes can get pretty big, but they usually rot or fall over before they get real big.

I gues it's possible using photoshop.

Open up a the image and zoom in.

Easy to tell it's a fake. Notice the direction of the shadows of the people, and then ask where is the comprable mushroom shadow. Look at the second person from the left, the one pointing. If the sun is such that he is casting that shadow, the comprable mushroom shadow is missing. Also, look at the shadow on the stem of the mushroom. Obvious fake.

You can see a grass blade impression on the cap... where is that monster grass that made that impression? Why did "Paul Bunyon" pull that out of the ground and place it on those rocks... You can see the dirt on the bulb, actually, by the size, those would be stones, not sand on the side of the bulb.

If you think that is real, do a search on "Google" for "ROBOT MINI COOPER"

it is real, this is the first fruiting


http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/3692136.stm


Swiss scientists have found what they say may be Europe's biggest mushroom - covering an area about the size of 35 football pitches.
The fungus was discovered in a national park near the eastern town of Ofenpass, said the Federal Institute for Forest, Snow and Countryside Research (WSL).

Spanning 35 hectares (86 acres), the mostly underground fungus is believed to be 1,000 years old, the WSL added.

The Honey Mushroom (Armillaria ostoyae) is edible, but it can kill trees.


"The majority of the fungus is an underground network that looks a bit like shoelaces," WSL's spokeswoman Muriel Bendel said.

"The surface mushrooms look like the normal type you would pick, and are brown to yellow," the spokeswoman added.

Although harmless to humans, certain species of the vast underground organism can colonise trees, gradually strangling them, scientists say.

The fungus is only visible in autumn, when its mushrooms break through the earth and grow around the roots of trees, the WSL said.

The Swiss fungus is considerably smaller than another Honey Mushroom growing in the US.

Found in the Malheur national forest in Oregon, that fungus covers 890 hectares (2,200 acres) - making it the largest living organism ever discovered.

they're talking about the mycelium coverage when they talk about the "mushroom"
