We have grown up on this planet, trapped, in a certain sense, on it, not knowing of the existence of anything else beyond our immediate surroundings, having to figure the world out for ourselves. What a courageous and difficult enterprise, building, generation after generation, on what has been learned in the past; questioning the conventional wisdom; being willing, sometimes at great personal risk, to challenge the prevailing wisdom and gradually, slowly emerging from this torment, a well-based, in many senses predictive, quantitative understanding of the nature of the world around us. Not, by any means, understanding every aspect of that world but gradually, through successive approximations, understanding more and more. We face a difficult and uncertain future, and it seems to me it requires all of those talents that have been honed by our evolution and our history, if we are to survive.

Quite possibly the best cup I’ve ever drank from. Thanks for the wise and hilarious words, Sara Silverman.

I really wish somebody would turn this into a travel coffee mug. I’ll take 3, please.

Blue Roundhead - Stropharia cyanea 
Stropharia cyanea (Strophariaceae) is a blue mushroom found in Europe and in Washington State, probably widespread in the Northwest. It has bluish green to yellow-green caps, soon discolored to pale straw yellow with only hint of green.
This species has long been confused with Stropharia aeruginosa, which is more strongly colored blue-green and has a copious white veil and white then darker, purple-brown gills. Some authors consider the species Stropharia cyanea is synonymous with Stropharia caerulea.
Together with other fungi in the genus Stropharia, the Blue Roundhead is inedible.
