    We were at CDG when there was a huge explosion. The passengers hit the floor. The desk reps kept typing. We figured they'd blown up someone's unattended luggage on the tarmac. Would have been nice if they'd announced it ahead of time.

    Back on a HS trip, we snuck out from the cdg hotel to go to a terminal bar on our last night. Of course we missed the last hotel shuttle, so rather than follow the rather long route all the way around the runways, we decided to take the short route direct to the hotel - across the runway. It was prob 3 am so not much activity, but even then we barely made it past the last security fence before the waawaawaawaa came hauling ass toward us. The gendarmes were not amused.

    There are a lot of diseases that do a lot of bad things but rabies has gotta be near the top of the list for me. Obviously you just get the shot and yer fine but if you dont...you can get exposed, be fine for a year, suddenly become deathly afraid of liquid, go batshit insane, and die a horrible death, all without any idea what is happening to you.

    Hey something like 10 people have survived rabies, you might be ok.



    But the videos of people deathly afraid of water are terrifying and not at all pleasant to think about. I'd go get a shot.

    Rabies is a vaccine-preventable, zoonotic, viral disease. Once clinical symptoms appear, rabies is virtually 100% fatal. In up to 99% of cases, domestic dogs are responsible for rabies virus transmission to humans. Yet, rabies can affect both domestic and wild animals. It is spread to people and animals through bites or scratches, usually via saliva.

    You want Furious, go to a mall or airport when the draft paranoia hits and get some video that Ozzyman can edit.

    The incubation period for rabies is typically 2–3 months but may vary from 1 week to 1 year, dependent upon factors such as the location of virus entry and viral load. Initial symptoms of rabies include a fever with pain and unusual or unexplained tingling, pricking, or burning sensation (paraesthesia) at the wound site. As the virus spreads to the central nervous system, progressive and fatal inflammation of the brain and spinal cord develops.

    There are two forms of the disease:

    Furious rabies results in signs of hyperactivity, excitable behaviour, hydrophobia (fear of water) and sometimes aerophobia (fear of drafts or of fresh air). Death occurs after a few days due to cardio-respiratory arrest.
    Paralytic rabies accounts for about 20% of the total number of human cases. This form of rabies runs a less dramatic and usually longer course than the furious form. Muscles gradually become paralysed, starting at the site of the bite or scratch. A coma slowly develops, and eventually death occurs. The paralytic form of rabies is often misdiagnosed, contributing to the under-reporting of the disease.

    By the way, how did you manage to get scratched by a raccoon? You try to pet it like a cat?

    I'd think we're looking here at tetanus vs rabies. Doesn't rabies get transmitted by saliva? Did the racoon lick you after he scratched you?

    A buddy was bitten by a stray dog while jogging in Mexico a couple years ago. It was a pretty good bite and he went to the hospital for treatment. The hospital cleaned him up nice but when he got back to the states he talked to his doc and was told in no uncertain terms to get the rabies shots. They were excruciating. At one point he told the nurse he was light headed but that is he passed out to please finish giving him the shots before they tried to revive him.

    He did not get the rabies tho...

    Was it cute? Wait, no, dumb question, of course it was cute, it's a trash panda. In that case, I'm sure the scratch is all rainbows and unicorns.

    We have a family that lives around here, we often see them on our blink camera at night. I was carrying stuff out to my car (moving sucks) and saw one on the street. He was looking at me, back arched, but he was far enough away that I didn't freak, and I wasn't thinking "where's the rest of the family". One must have been under my car. As I was loading stuff into the front seat, eye on the raccoon in the street, I felt a scratch. I jumped and screamed, but it was a manly scream.

    It's not a deep scratch, very minor, but it's a raccoon scratch, so...

    Reminds me of one of the Young Brownski classics. It was probably around 1982 or so in Roseboom, NY - and yes Roseboom is upstate as fuck, maybe peak upstate - at a place called Belvedere Lake where my family used to rent a cabin for a week or two every summer. It was probably the summer between fifth and sixth grade. The cabins were all built on the side of a big wooded hill above the lake and they had decks that extended out on the downhill side. There were all kinds of critters around of course so the garbage cans were hung from the bottoms of the decks with bungees holding the tops down. One night the whole family got back to the cabin in the dark. I don’t remember if we had been at church or dinner or what but I remember it was everybody - myself, my parents, my brother and my seven sisters. So we all walk down the path from the road and we can see that one of the cans’ lid is off and there is some crap on the ground. So my dad is like “Something got into the trash. Go clean it up Brownski” I got all the dirty jobs back then for some reason, even though I was one of the younger kids. So I go down the hill, pick up a few bits of garbage, toss ‘em over the lip of the can, which is above my head. So far so go. Nothing exciting. But when I pick up the lid and reach up to put it back on the can, the raccoon that was still hiding in the garbage, being all still and quiet, hits the panic button. All I know is that something pushes back on the trash can lid and there’s this explosion of gray and brown fur out of the can. The raccoon lands right smack dab on top of my head and springboards away into the dark, shrieking like a cat as it goes. I was so surprised I fell back onto my ass, swinging my arms over my head in a panic but the fat little bugger was gone. It was over so fast I didn’t know whether to shit or go blind.
