Sorry, I did not quite get what you mean. I knew of fairy rings before I even started in school, they were plentiful in my parents garden.

So because its common knowledge to you they must be common knowledge to everyone? Amazing.

That is rather the definition of common knowledge

If not from personal experience, then there is always Google. Unless one prefers fringe web sites as main source of information. Then "common knowledge" becomes a little more subjective.

I still await the compelling Exhibit A.

The majority of the populace of course.  Common knowledge defined: something widely or generally known.

Okay maybe you didnt understand my previous post.
Lets try again.

If I know something about specific phenomenan does that mean its common knowledge?

Sorry to interrupt, but this is not a specific phenomena, its just plain and simple fairy rings. I do understand though if someone has not seen them before then they would find it strange, but personally I would have googled it first , there it would have shown that it was common in many parts and common knowledge too.

peace

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

Its not common knowledge. And its phenomenan.
Common knowledge is that Egyptians built pyramids and done mummies, that Chinese invented compass, paper, printing and gunpowder. Socrates was philosopher.
That Spainyard conquer Aztecs and Inca. That Newton discover gravity. That Eiffel tower is in Paris...

Not fairy rings. Im sure 99% people of the world never heard of it. And when you compare with number of people who heard about Egyptian pyramids or Eiffel tower Fairy ring isnt common knowledge.

I dunno, mushroom rings/fairy rings are pretty commonly known all around my area too. I wouldn't say every person knows them, but a great deal of the people do. I've never seen fairy rings quite as big as what's in the OP article, but I have seen a few that were at least 5 feet across.

Anywho, I had a thought... I don't know anything about the area to know if they have a septic tank or not, but perhaps the circle is indicative of some early septic tank problems?

99% is pretty high.
The Pyramids or the Eiffel Tower or any of the other listed above are not exactly things which pop up out of the ground at certain times of the year and then go away again in a week or so, so  maybe that is why people are more aware of them!
My point was, a google search would have shown that fairy rings are quite common and not a mystery. It does not mean that everyone has heard of them, true, but it certainly is not one of the worlds mysteries...so as for "mysterious circles".........sorry, but they are not.

Personally I never heard about mushroom rings and Im interested in all kinds of phenomenan.
