...knowing about mushrooms will make you a FUN-GUY
Bwuahahaahahaa...That one sent coffee through my nose...
Great thread, Jack -thanks - and the video is decent (if a bit of a yawner in spots). I respect Phage immensely, but on this one I think he needs to
lighten up a bit. Over-caution is fine, for him, but I see nothing wrong in teaching yourself through YouTube as there are many scholars and experts
sharing their knowledge there -it's a great medium if you just use some common sense and keep your BS meter set on 'high'.
I can't tell you the number of times I've saved tons of money fixing things around the 'ole stead - plumbing, electric, etc., plus gardening, car
repair, the list goes on and on... many of these activities could've been dangerous -even life-threatening as well - but I've manged them and
completed my tasks or projects with no ill-effects (and learned a lot by just DIY). I don't see how this is much different. Knowledge is power and
will keep you and your loved ones alive (or save your life). I see little difference in seeing an expert in person and one who teaches me the exact
same thing on a video. There's a reason on-line university classes and MOOC's are becoming so popular. They work, they're reliable, they can reach a
lot of people interested in learning. It's not ALL about those moronic Kardashian's out there, you know...
Keep up the good work, fellas (and ladies)!
