Nah that's fine. it's just that with indigo caps, the initial appearance is just the beginning of their weirdness. This colored latex like fluid leaks out when you cut them or scrape the gills, which is probably unnerving if you're not expecting it, and yet another reason why my son likes these ones lol. It's perfectly safe, though.

Yeah, I'm thinkin' I'd leave the gills on that one Tongue

I need to save my duckets for one too. They have a really cool space & science center near where I live. This sounds really cool...

I got an amazing deal on a telescope last summer, but due to a broken gear in the mount, it's been sitting in my office unused. I live in one of the cloudiest places in the US as well, so the motivation to buy a new mount has been low. I really want to take another trip out to the desert once I get it fixed so I can do some stellar photography.

I've always been interested in astronomy and astrophysics. Some of the scales of energy is simply mind blowing. I've had to put down a few books just to wrap my mind around something that is totally out of our realm of reference. How do you truly imagine the size of a large star? A light year? A galaxy?

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.

This looks like a good deal right here:

8 inch Telescope

I got one of these. It's nice, but I want a better one.

RE: Post your quirky scientific interests here
Oh gosh I would love to have a telescope. I too love to learn about astronomy, unfortunately there are no real open areas where I am. This morning I got up early to see Venus and I was surprised I could see it through some hazy clouds, pretty impressive but it would be more fun with a scope. Allegedly Venus is visible in daylight if it's far from the sun...I love to pay attention to stuff like that and see what I can see. If I had dark skies and binoculars even I would be a happy skywatcher.
