    This reminds me of the Seinfeld episode in which Elaine gets nipped by a dog and within an hour or so develops rabies symptoms consistent with her reckoning of what rabies is. Of course, the woman here actually had some mystery sickness while Elaine was simply being Elaine. 

    I’ve read somewhere (maybe here on BB) that native Amazonians who eat bats for protein have a natural resistance to the rabies virus, and perhaps ten percent of the hunters have an outright immunity.

    Rabies is definitely funny when Chuck Pahlaniuk gets his hands on it.

    There’s an old film where Glenn Ford gets rabies in the desert.  Finding a source of water becomes a point of suspense, as Ford is hesitant to approach and drink, because you know, hydrophobia, get it?  I thought that was absurd, but as it turns out, swallowing becomes extremely difficult, so yeah, water is a problem.

    That was a good listen. My own rabies story is also funny in hindsight, but much shorter.
