What is this rainbow colored plant or fungus?

The object in the linked picture was recently found on a gravel road in Northern Georgia (the US state). The picture is a cross section of something, either plant or fungi, which smelled mushroomy and has a light brown exterior. About 2 inches in diameter. I have deja-vu, I feel like I've seen or even asked this question before. I'm hoping someone who still has a good memory can tell me what it is.

Help me identify these mushrooms from my backyard

With the arrival of the rains, a patch of mushrooms of a wide variety of shapes and color patterns has sprouted around my chestnut tree in the backyard. I heard mushroom identification can be tricky so I have no plans on eating them. But I would love to know what species they are. I've tried a couple of online mushroom identification sites but haven't had much luck. Here are some pictures They are all about 2-3 inches tall. As far as I can tell they don't have any striking odors. I live in Portland Oregon.

UK fungus ID groups/materials?

I'm looking for a UK-oriented fungus identification online group or guide or website or book or Android app. Recommendations based on personal experience are most welcome. Poking around online has led me to a few places, like Mycokey, but either the varieties aren't listed or I'm just rubbish at describing what I've found. [more inside]

Are there any actual health benefits to drinking kombucha?

I have been brewing and drinking my own kombucha for years. I like the taste, I like the bubbles, and it's a fun and relatively low-maintenance hobby in the realm of brewing things (way less involved than beer, for instance). What I'm wondering is if there is any actual known proven non-woo benefit of drinking the stuff. There's so much crap online it's difficult to sort through. [more inside]

Is it safe to eat this wild mushroom?

With all the rain we have had lately, there are a lot of mushrooms growing in the woods. I started reading about mushroom hunting and some mycologists claim that Chicken Mushrooms are reasonably safe to pick & eat. I recalled that there was an oak tree nearby that had been felled by Hurricane Irene, so I walk out to it and look. Sure enough, what I am fairly certain is a Laetiporus Sulphureus growing from the snapped trunk. [more inside]

If I can't eat shiitake, what else should I avoid?

FungusFilter: I have an unpleasant intenstinal reaction to shiitake mushrooms. A nibble off of one is enough to set it off. This is a fairly new thing for me (I used to be able to eat them, though fortunately for me, I was never a big fan). Regular cap mushrooms and portobellos are fine. This leaves a lot of other mushrooms (porcini, etc) in the twilight zone. Based on this limited knowledge, are there other mushrooms I should avoid? Experimenting with every mushroom that comes along could get pretty ugly.

Do mushrooms need peeling?

My wife, and her family, insist that "white" supermarket mushrooms must be "peeled" (or, barring that, washed) prior to eating. I always ate the things right out of the package, possibly using a brush to get the black stuff (dirt? mushroom grower poop?) off, if I think of it. Do mushrooms need to be peeled or cleaned?
