How in jehova do you pronounce these? I've heard these pronounced all sorts of ways and I just wanted to get an official pronunciation from ya'll. Thanx!

I once heard Terrance McKenna say it like:

They chopped her goddam head off right there in the parking lot. Then they cut all kinds of holes in her head and sucked the blood out. I think they were after the pineal gland.

Most people say: sil-o-sigh-bin
Also common: sigh-lo-sigh-bin, sigh-lo-sib-in (less common)
Hard to take into account differences in regional accent, so any of those is "correct" -- or at least, no one will care if it isn't...

Proper latin for psilocybe would probably be "sil-os-uh-bee" (like "philosophy") but if you say that you'll look like a smart prick.

Now if I could just work out how to say "ololiuqui"...
