Sex chatting site without making account
Curious, I followed the link in the article to another article, which linked to an abstract for a talk given almost fifteen years ago—but the journal’s site was down and all that I could access was the front page for the abstract. Holliday and Noah Soule—finding scattered stories about the abstract over the years, but nothing more concrete.
The only one which seemed to be based on an actual encounter with the researchers was an article by Ben Sostrin for the newsletter of the Oregon Mycological Society from 2002 titled “Mushrooms and Maui II: Mamalu o Wahine,” the second half of a two part series on Hawaiian mushrooms, which of course I had no access to.
“I have nothing to gain and everything to lose by discussing that paper,” he said to me flatly.
“I don’t want any attention focused on that.” Whether he wanted it or not, a bright spotlight was already shining on Holliday’s nearly fifteen-year-old work.
It wasn’t likely that such a legend would have been kept secret, she noted. There are many sexual innuendos in things like ‘ōlelo no‘eau and mele (wise sayings and poems and music).

He’d been open to interviews in the past, which made me hopeful: But Holliday wasn’t eager to talk. Somebody sent me a link yesterday, it’s some lady I don’t even know, I have never heard of her or talked to her, and she is claiming that she talked to me and I told her that it was not legitimate… That is why I don’t really want to see anything about this.” According to Holliday, he also is under a strict confidentiality agreement and therefore cannot discuss the study conducted in any way.species, I didn’t really believe him—probably because he also claimed this mushroom had some pretty implausible properties.But it was there all the same, right where he said it would be.Yet it would be ill-advised to discount the possibility of local lore identifying a bioactive plant well before modern science.After all, willow branches were chewed for centuries to relieve fever and pain before scientists were able to isolate salicin from its bark—a discovery which led to aspirin.
