Incidentally, the urine of people who eat the mushroom contains substantial quantities of the isoxazole derivatives that produce an 'intoxicating' effect.

Excellent detail and dof. Really stunning. Very interesting write up. I wonder what the poor people did with the urine after they collected it. Hopefully just sniffed it, which seems really awful too...............Sandy
