The following is one of the tidbits from the “Fact of the Day” service. These nuggets of erudition arrive on my mobile phone each evening at 7:00 p.m. MST. I pay two cents every day for this privilege. Hold onto your seats:

I am rendered [practically] speechless. Would you have EVER thought of such a thing without having seen this “elementary rule of mushroom collecting?”

Thank you, Fact of the Day. Oh, the lives you’ll save.
