Why do the Danes for toadstool
say paddehat, rather than tudsehatt1 Of their two words for toad, why do
they link with the wild fungi the one that does not refer to the poisonous
secretion In English too we find paddock-stool. In Dutch there exists no
name for the toad, so far as we know, that means the poisonous one yet
the Dutch also say paddestoel.

all of the over-cautious manuals of that time, it condemned the amanita citrina
as deadly. Girard had not thought it necessary, therefore, to distinguish the two
amanitas when instructing old Theo about the mushrooms to gather. Thus it
came about that when Theo brought in a mess of the amanita phalloides, the
victim would enjoy a dish of tasty mushrooms and later die.
In addition, many early users of "magic mushrooms" in Australia may have first become aware of their mind-altering and visionary effects by reading the published literature or the many news items appearing in the popular Australian press during the late l960's and early l970's. These news items often described both accidental and deliberate intoxication's which resulted from the ingestion of several varieties of "magic mushrooms". For example, in 1972, one local newspaper report provided an account regarding the use of these mushrooms by young teenagers at a local high school in Brisbane: "...children at a suburban school are getting high on mushrooms called 'Gold Tops.' The mushrooms are common along the Brisbane River near Toowing High School, and children in search of `kicks' have been experimenting with them (Unsigned, 1972)." It would be very obvious to anyone who read this above mentioned news item, when it appeared in print, that those searching for hallucinogenic mushrooms would be able to find them if they so desired. There is yet another factor that may have played a significant role in promoting interest in the use of psychoactive mushrooms in Australia and NZ. Some drug users or mycophillic individuals may have read or heard of R. Gordon Wasson's personal account of his adventurous rediscovery of an hallucinogenic mushroom cult among the Mazatec Indians of Southern Mexico. Dr. Wasson reported the ceremonial use of certain mushrooms as divinatory substances among the Mazatecs and other native peoples in Oaxaca, Mexico (see Wasson, 1957). This journalistic report of Wasson's research expedition appeared in an international edition of Life Magazine in the late l950's, providing many drug users and others with the incentive to seek out, find, and eventually experiment with these mushrooms.

Far to the west of the Korjaks and Chukchees, in
western Siberia, in the northern lands lying between the Ob and Yenisei rivers,
we have fragmentary but reliable reports that the shamanistic use of the inebriating
fly amanita has survived into our own times. Kai Donner, the Finnish scholar,
states that the Samoyeds in this region eat the mushroom, and also the people
known as the Yenisei-Ostjaks. Or Info Or Udu Nl Nl
