This observation would be very useful

if I was a hippie in Seattle craving psilocybin, but couldn’t find any. Certainly there must be some high school kids which fit this description.

not relevant to the discussion, just Alan’s phrasing, these were Erin’s.

Trust and belief in scientific research only leads to bias. Here are some useful observations, this one is not.

I believe him that they were there – both because I am confident that Pulk can ID Psilocybe cyanescens, and I have found them there before. It’s not like the world really needs more Psilocybe cyanescens photos.

If I was motivated to find_P. cyanescens_ today, I would go to “Washington Park Arboretum, Seattle, Washington, USA” based on this observation.

In science, predictive strength = value.

The exact nature of this value varies between observations with different kinds and quantities of supporting evidence. Different data points will be be of varying utility for different investigators based on the stringency of their requirements for the data they use in their investigations.
