    Well, excuuuuuuuse me. I just found out, so I thought some CR readers might have missed it as well.

    "God (the creator of ergot and its LSD component)"

    LSD is synthesized from ergot fungus -- it is not a component of it.

  5. I see that you are right again, Gene.

    While I had recalled correctly that lysergic acid is an ergot component, I had not realized that the diethylamide of lysergic acid was artifically synthesized from it.
