Hey! Army ants are voracious, so are all ants. Why are you dismissing this theory?

Quote:For centuries, the sudden and rapid eruption of circles of mushrooms from the soil led people to believe that dark or terrible forces were at work. Lightning strikes, meteorites, shooting stars, earthly vapours, and witches have all been proposed as agents of their origin.

In France fairy rings were called sorcerers' rings and in Austria, witches' rings. A Tyrolean legend claims that the rings were burned into the ground by the fiery tail of a dragon. In Holland they were said to be the marks where the Devil rested his milk churn. In Europe, the belief that fungi were the work of evil spirits or witches persisted well into the 19th century.

In England, as their name suggests, they were places where fairies come to dance. The mushrooms around the perimeter were seats where the sprites could rest after their exertions. People in rural England claimed to have seen fairies dancing at fairy rings as recently as the start of the twentieth century.

One common theme in all these traditions is the belief that dire consequences await anyone foolhardy enough to enter a fairy ring. Trespassers would be struck blind or lame, or even disappear to become slaves in the fairies' underground realm. In Wales the rings were associated with fertility and doom, and anyone foolish enough to plow one up would incur the wrath of the fairies. It was also widely believed that if animals grazed within a fairy ring their milk would putrefy.

On the positive side, fairy rings were said to bring good luck to houses built in fields where they occur. In another tradition, the rings were sites of buried treasure, but there was a catch—the treasure could only be retrieved with the help of fairies or witches.

The name fairy ring comes from an old folk-tale. People once believed that mushrooms growing in a circle followed the path made by fairies dancing in a ring. Fairy rings are found in open grassy places and in forests.

Ya know, remember CmndrDraco? His parents live in a house where the lay-lines have shifted. It became very strange for them, some odd paranormal activity going on.
His mom put up crosses all over the house and she isn't religious.

Army ant death spiral vs. fairy mushrooms is like the movie 300 vs. the Bolshoi Ballet

The outcome is obvious. coffeetime.gif

If that doesn't settle it we usually resort to jello wrestling.

15.gif Nope. His dad is constantly driving copper tubes in the ground to attempt to force the laylines back out around the house. It's also near a fast moving stream, and that's a known factor that influences paranormal activity.

Lay-lines don't give a shït about crosses, but interesting thing is old log cabins, at least around these parts, are usually found with the points of crossing in the corners of the building. Of course lay-lines move around over the years so they will be somewhat off today. It's just something my dad taught me and is measurable.
