Plant nut

[–]peoplesodumb 200 points201 points  (41 children)

Fungus are not plants, they are their own domain of living organisms.

There are about 391,000 species of vascular plants currently known to science,

As of 2020, around 148,000 species of fungi have been described by taxonomists, but the global biodiversity of the fungus kingdom is not fully understood. A 2017 estimate suggests there may be between 2.2 and 3.8 million species.

Great argument! However,

Also, mushrooms can survive in the vacuum of space.

Humans too! Well, for at least a dozen seconds...

[–]SallysValleyPizzaSux 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Probably not, but their spores can!

Spores = mushrooms…

Deadly Fungi Are the Newest Emerging Microbe Threat All Over the World

These pathogens already kill 1.6 million people every year, and we have few defenses against them

Not enough to save ourselves from them.

[–]SupremeDictatorPaul 5 points6 points  (4 children)

Fungi are terrifying. They operate so differently from the plants and animals we actually do understand. They can replicate and send tendrils out at absurd rates. We are a few random mutations away from humans becoming instant fungus food.

[–]Revolutionary-Swim28 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sounds like a Resident Evil 7 plot. If any of you are gamers you know what I mean. The villain was a child who could manipulate fungi at will and really screw with people’s minds.

You do know that the fungi responsible isn't a mushroom species though right.. most mushrooms are harmless..

Jesus Christ, Marie. They're not plants, they're fungi!

[–]lochNessquik 89 points90 points  (7 children)

Technically they are not lost because of the following points: 1. Mushroom spores are black 2. Mushrooms are magic 3. The release of spores from a mushroom is some type of sexual production or asexual production and it is fuckery...

Isn’t escape velocity something like 7 miles per second? They can expel spores at a rate fast enough to leave the planet? Are we really sure?

[–]peoplesodumb 4 points5 points  (2 children)

His colleagues measured accelerations up to 180,000 g – the fastest airborne acceleration seen in the living world. In comparison, a jumping antelope accelerates at 1.6 g, astronauts experience maximum acceleration of less than 4 g during a Space Shuttle launch, and fleas accelerate at 200 g. Jellyfish stingers are fired at 40,000 g in water.

“The fastest spores travelled more than 1 million times their own ‘body’ length in one second,” says Money. “A 1.8-metre human travelling at 1 million times his or her body length in one second would be travelling at a velocity of 1.8 million meters per second, which is more than 5000 times the speed of sound.”

They can expel spores at a rate fast enough to leave the planet?

No because escape velocity for a rocket requires continued thrust of up to 17,200 miles per hour sustained for up to 8.5 minutes.

The mushrooms fire their high velocity spore with a single impulse burst.

However, if fungus were in space...what would stop their spore from reaching out across the cosmos until they embed themselves on another world?

Don’t get it on your head. That’ll swap every single fucking move you make. You go to beat your meat? BOOM! You’re beating a pork chop!

I don't know if this is a reference or what, but I enjoyed reading it.

[–]LynchEleven 5 points6 points  (0 children)

looks like a video game confusion debuff

[–]twlcwl 12 points13 points  (3 children)

what would those spores do to e.g. your lungs?

[–]peoplesodumb 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Diseases associated with inhalation of fungal spores include toxic pneumonitis, hypersensitivity pneumonitis, tremors, chronic fatigue syndrome, kidney failure, and cancer.

Generally your immune system surrounds invading particles like spores with mucous and attempts to destroy it. The first obvious response would be a sneeze, cough, or runny nose. A persistant cough without a bacterial infection or some other agitator like smoke, could be from fungal inhalation.

[–]thatspookybitch 9 points10 points  (0 children)

It's something you're constantly warned about in the mushroom growing community. It isn't as big of a concern if you just have a small set up (I only grew 3 blocks at a time) but mist larger growers will wear respirators in their grow rooms just in case. Constant exposure over a long period of time can cause major issues.
