superfungus

Last week I went with some friends to a movie. There was fungus on the chairs of the cinema hall and it was STINKY. I smelt the fungus throughout the show. During the interval, I shone my cellphone torch on the chairs and showed everyone the fungus.

I was advised to stop smelling the fungus and smell the popcorn instead.

Hahahaha. Now you see how bad smelling things spoil the movie experience. Imagine my plight when some one decided to eat what smelled like smelly socks.

This is how Fungi help plants in generating more oxygen.

"Fungi are important decomposers of dead animal and plant matter. They break down dead organic matter into simple compounds that can be absorbed by the plants around it. During the process of decomposing matter, fungi returns carbon dioxide to the atmosphere. Green plants use the carbon dioxide during photosynthesis to produce food. Oxygen is released into the atmosphere during the process of photosynthesis, so animal and human life depends on the fungi for survival. Plants also benefit from fungi because some fungi settle around the roots of plants. As the fungus decomposes dead matter around the roots of the plant, it leaves behind nutrients that the plant needs. Some fungi, like mushrooms, are used as ingredients in recipes. They add flavor to meals." - http://library.thinkquest.org/CR0212089/fungi.htm
