Ahh, so this finally explains it. In my naivety, I was originally of the belief that human beings had emerged from simpler primates.

Now, it's obvious. We are the evolutionary decedents in the uneasy truce resulting in the symbiosis of primates with brain eating fungus-- Homo erectus. Why did Tenzing Norgay drag Sir Edmund Hilary up the hill? The meaning of life is not 42. Nor does Author C. Clark’s bunch of bone chucking monkeys encountering a black monolith explain us. We be fungus( for the most part) + silly monkey.

That is epic. You should post the videos of parasitic fungus that just grows out of living creatures, if I remember correctly there is a species of fungus for everything out there. Look up the one with the ant. It just grows out of his head!

Your jaw begins to drop midway slowly reading this:

cronxeh,

Thought I would post a pic of the mushroom (fungus) growing out of an ants head for you.

Watch the video http://www.ted.com/talks/lang/eng/paul_stamets_on_6_ways_mushrooms_can_save_the_world.html", fast forward to 13:45, intro followed by damage to the ant in stages.

It sort of blew my mind when I saw it for the first time too.

Rhody... :bugeye: :yuck: :surprised
:eek: I'm going to have nightmares.

That guy is really, really, really into mushrooms.
Not for nothing, he received a standing ovation. I mean talk about being fungal.
