Fall walkin'

Amanita muscaria
TLDR: fly "agaric" (capped, gilled mushroom) or fly "amanita" (genus containing about 600 species of agarics) – Latin musca meaning "fly". Name derived from its use as an insecticide when sprinkled in milk. Although classified as poisonous, reports of human deaths are extremely rare. After parboiling twice with water draining—which weakens its toxicity and breaks down the mushroom's psychoactive substances—it is eaten in parts of Europe, Asia, and North America. Used as an intoxicant by the indigenous peoples of Siberia and by the S├ími. Possible traditional use of this mushroom as an intoxicant in other places such as the Middle East, Eurasia, North America, and Scandinavia.
