    Rabies is insane. I see these videos pop up on Reddit every once in a while - just a brutal virus with a virtually 100% kill rate. This man is dead. The fear in his eyes is sad. Has to be one of the worst ways to go.

    What? No. The rabies vaccine is 100% effective (which is amazing) if given within the first 10 days.

    I’m sure he means after symptoms have started and the vaccine window is missed.

    Random rant: If you’ve grown up in the internet era and are online enough you surely know by now about how deadly rabies is if left untreated. Yet even in late 2022 every rabies related thread on the internet (like that reddit one) is full of people acting like they’re the first person on the internet to discover this and have to educate the rest of the masses.

    Hydrophobia. Not an actual phobia of water with rabies. By this point (one of the last stages) the disease cause spasms in the throat that prevents the infected from swallowing.

    It’s why people froth at the mouth with rabies. The virus has infected a significant number of the neurons in the brain and makes it so that you can’t swallow water and makes you progressively terrified of everything. So you froth at the mouth from nothing being able to go down your throat (including saliva) and you bite things out of terror. That helps the virus spread.

    Truly one of the most fucked medical things out there

    Do what?

    Moreover, uncommon symptoms and signs reflecting abnormal sexual behaviors, including frequent ejaculation, priapism, hypersexuality, and other abnormal sexual behaviors, may be the representing manifestations of rabies, which may lead to misdiagnosis.

    Did you know if you wake up with a bat trapped in your house you should go get a rabies shot out of precaution, even if you don't recall being bit or scratched.

    I read the thread and part of the explanation — if it’s accurate — the virus dies in the stomach. So it’s doing what it can prevent the host from swallowing.

    Also, if you develop a sensitivity to sunlight, garlic and/or silver, you should just eat a bullet.

    He also had another murder, but they thought evidence wasn't strong enough and took a plea deal on home invasion only. So that's cool

    Jeez….dude is a serious piece of shit and should not have been in jail.

    Parsons-Salas is already a convicted felon, released on parole in September after serving time for a 2009 home invasion in Albany Park in which two people were also shot dead.

    Parsons-Salas was initially charged with murder in that case, but pleaded guilty to two counts of home invasion.

    Five years later, then-23-year-old Parsons-Salas was charged with first degree murder, along with another man. But those counts against him were later dropped after he agreed to plead guilty to home invasion charges, which carried an eight-year sentence.

    Three months ago, Parsons-Salas was released on parole.

    The Cook County State's Attorney said in a statement Thursday, "As in all cases, this matter was litigated based on the facts, evidence, and the law. After a thorough review of the case, including the defendant's role for the crime that occurred in 2010, we concluded that the evidence did not meet the burden of proof to move forward with the murder charges for Samuel Salas. On September 19, 2018, Salas pled guilty to the felony charge of Home Invasion and was sentenced to 8 years in prison after the court accepted the defendant's plea as a resolution to this case. The Cook County State's Attorney's Office is committed to the work of justice and will continue to support those impacted by crime in our communities."

    The guy doing the branding might need to be charged with attempted murder, ffs. Hopefully he was drunk and not intentionally trying to burn a hole through his chest. Guessing a hot iron to the heart isn’t a good thing.
