Yep, that was one of the first things I thought of when I took the lid off the bowl today. I had never seen things grow to such an extent before on leftovers....

What an ignorant contribution to this awesome thread. Why don't you get a life and find somebody elses thread to unload your ignorance on.

And also, lets not forget the History of Mold.




Molds are present in virtually every environment that has been examined. Molds grow indoors and outdoors and, depending on the species, can grow year-round, even in winter.


Not surprisingly, I experienced that in a previous house I owned. Was a pain to get rid of when it was frozen.






Some of the products of mold metabolism have great importance. For example, a mold called Rhizopus produces fumaric acid, which can be used in the production of the drug cortisone.

Other molds can produce alcohol, citric acid, oxalic acid, or a wide range of other chemicals. Some molds can cause fatal neural diseases in humans and other animals.

Moldy bread is nonpoisonous. Nevertheless, approximately one hundred million loaves of moldy bread are discarded annually in the United States. The molds typically cause spoilage rather than rendering the bread poisonous.


Would you eat moldy bread?




Certain types of cheeses are ripened by mold fungi. Indeed, the molds responsible for this action have taken their names from the cheeses they affect. Camembert is ripened by Penicillium camemberti, and Roquefort is by Penicillium roquefortii.

The Penicillium mold has another important use, namely the production of antibiotics. Two species have been used for the production of penicillin, the first antibiotic to be discovered: Penicillium notatum and Penicillium chrysogenum.

Ah, now that we are on the topic of Penicillin...

History.


In 1928, Sir Alexander Fleming observed that colonies of the bacterium Staphylococcus aureus could be destroyed by the mold Penicillium notatum, proving that there was an antibacterial agent there in principle.

This principle later lead to medicines that could kill certain types of disease-causing bacteria inside the body.
At the time, however, the importance of Alexander Fleming's discovery was not known.

Use of penicillin did not begin until the 1940s when Howard Florey and Ernst Chain isolated the active ingredient and developed a powdery form of the medicine.



I've always wondered, that since there has been moldy items growing on food items for centuries, why hadn't ancient civilizations understand the possible benefits? Or did they....

A timeline of Antbiotics.

And...


People have been using antibiotics for nearly 2,000 years, suggests a new study, which found large doses of tetracycline embedded in the bones of ancient African mummies.

I personally think they are beautiful. Imagine that growing on a planet a few thousand lightyears away...

If we had pictures of that, you would be staring at the same thing on the front page of the NY Times.




I honestly don't think I'll ever look at mold the same way, ever again... instead of seeing something disgusting, I'm going to be staring into an old coffee mug, and imagine I'm staring at a newspaper pic of "life on another planet". O_o

There is always one who spoils the fun.

Aren't you that person who at a party stands in the corner pouting and trashing anyone who has the audacity to enjoy themselves?

On a lighter note....

If mould is life and Boncho "a" God. Is chlorine the anti-christ?

I don't know if its been mentioned yet but the black mold there can be deadly. I really hope you didn't take a big wiff as you may end up with pneumonia. I would really pay attention to your health and physical well-being over the next few days. I did this once in middle school. I never used my locker but had stored a lunch in it once and forgot about it for months, found it at the end of the year when cleaning out the locker. We had some pretty interesting discussions in my science class for the last few days as my teacher made slides for everyone to look at.

I have been seeking high and low to escape from ATS's Mickey Mouse Bull#. Y0u, D0ucheb@g f*$@ball and your a-hole tribe of alfa1, kro32, weedwhacker & others finally gave me the reason.

F & U Boncho and the douchebaq likes...


Breathe in, breathe out, wax on, was off...

Take some fresh air friend, grab a beer and just try to enjoy !!!

This has been a refreshing thread - almost puked my dinner after seeing the pics though - and it has proven to be way better than most of the doom and gloom everyday rollercoaster rides.

Cheers !!



P.S. It's called humor. You should try it once in a while, it's highly addictive !

Not just humor, but a fascinating display of how quickly lifeforms can reproduce on our little planet. Think about it, we spend billions and billions of dollars sending spacecraft to other planets looking for the the kinds of things that one can find in old spoiled pasta sauce, here on Earth.
