Cause I originally joined the Shroomery cause I hoped to find drugs (just being honest here) and in the last 2 years it's gotten so that I spend 90 percent of my shroomery time in the Pub...when I;m bored in class, I go to the nearest computer terminal in my college's buildings just so I can check the Pub!

Also, I have superpowers, 3 million dollars, and a garage full of potent microdots and would be willing to share them in exchange for a nifty decoder ring.

I suggest a road trip involving both the microdots, the three of us, and the decoder rings (which I assume will lead us on a cross country adventure for the grandest treasure in history...with all the microdots we'll be eating the rings definitely will!)

Ok ... Agreed. The ring will lead you across country on a hell of an adventure. You must wear it with caution because the power is mighty and humbling aswell. Many a good soldier have fallen prey to the power once they realize what it can do for them. The ones that have not reside here within the Shroomery's Cyber home.
