Mushroom - safe to eat?

edited February 2017 in Not Sports Related
Genuine question.
Wifey found this by the lake yesterday.
Safe to eat without getting sick/going cuckoo?
Can't seem to find a mushroom online which looks like this one.
Approx 4 inch diameter.

  • Might be a magic one, eat it and Roland might disappear.

    Might give you the trots though
    Definitely give you the trots if it goes yellow when scraped, otherwise looks like a field mushroom. I collect mushrooms and just make sure i know the deadly ones and stick to the ones i can positively identify. Smell of iodine is a good clue to avoiding.

    Serious question, why take the risk? What could the possible pay-off be for potentially poisoning yourself?

    Unless you really want the magic sort I don't see it as a worthwhile thing to do.
    Sainsburys is where I pick mushrooms

    Who said anything about poisoning himself?

    Have you tried a mushroom fried in butter.

    Well worth every bit of the heart attack.

    Hence the question.
    What's wrong with eating something perfectly fine, found growing in the free. Or are we living in a world where we rather prefer to pop down to the local supermarket, spending our money on mass produced stuff?
