Mushroom Sex Is Beautiful, Complicated
Nicholas Money believes that mushrooms are spellbinding, and he talks about them with a great and sincere passion. I mean, just watch him talk about mushroom sex! Money is a renowned fungal researcher, a professor of botany at Miami University in Ohio, and the author of Mushroom (Oxford University Press, 2012).
He spent 30 years studying mycology (including hallucinogenics, molds, and giant, tropical, phallus-shaped shrooms). The studies led Money to the following conclusions:
(i) life on land would collapse without the activities of mushrooms; (ii) we owe our existence to mushrooms; and (iii) there is (probably) no God. The logic is spotless.
