Skunks

Arguably people will smell worse in the Primal Age, but being sprayed by a skunk will still be more than most people can handle in the smell-o-vision world. Whether it is you, you’re dog, or anything else, here is a simple cleaning solution to quickly remove the smell.

1 quart of 3% hydrogen peroxide
¼ cup baking soda
1 teaspoon of strong liquid soap such as dishwashing detergent.

Be sure to mix it in an open container, and only apply to the sprayed areas. Also, any clothing you happen to be wearing at the time is likely a lost cause. Skunks are best to be avoided at all times, however if you are trapping animals and come across one in the live trap, you want to shoot it through both lungs so that it doesn’t spray when it dies. I repeat, avoid skunks.

When it comes to mushrooms there is no old wives tale that proves true 100% of the time. Unlike Mario, it will be unlikely a randomly selected mushroom with give you an extra life or super-size, and more likely could kill you. So, when it comes to foraging mushrooms, do your research now and know which ones in your area are safe to eat and which ones will kill you. If you don’t know or aren’t completely sure of a mushroom, leave it be.
