    Piper Longum

    Hey guys, Wondering if anyone has a piper longum plant (indian long pepper) theyd be willing to share a cutting or seeds from. Alternatively, if you know where to purchase in spice or seed form in QLD your wisdom would be highly regarded.

    Share the good movies youve seen

    I just watched a newish movie called THE ZERO THEORUM good watch. really quirky, colourful and imaginative and slightly depressing due to its exageration of the pains of living in a man made world https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=rae7_O_6EtU

    truffles contain 'bliss' molecule

    Perhaps the fact that we are tool users plays into it. Maybe its a desired food that is poisonous to all animals in its natural state but weve evolved with it over time.

    truffles contain 'bliss' molecule

    Haha, probably ;) Yeah we do eat a large variety of plant/ fungi.. could it be said that there are no plants/ fungi that we are able to consume that other animals can not.. (note, a big mac doesnt produce a seed)

    truffles contain 'bliss' molecule

    I guess itd also be a question of what seeds or spores can survive the human digestive tract

    truffles contain 'bliss' molecule

    Lol, I was just sitting on the couch thinkin bout this post I made and had similar thoughts. I came back to reword my question to 'I wonder what other plants rely on humans to spread their seed'. Editing.... now
  13. Heres an interesting article. http://www.bbc.com/earth/story/20141221-truffles-contain-bliss-molecule 'Maccarrone believes truffles use it to attract animals to eat their fruiting bodies, so that their spores are spread more widely and they have a better chance of reproducing.' I wonder if there are other fungi/ plants that rely on humans in particular to spread spores/ seed.
