There’s a very good chance you’re well aware of how weird this world is, and how odd people can be; and what I’m about to show you really will staple this. All in the name of science though! So it’s fine – of course!
In the process of finding cures for all kinds of things it’s no secret that a lot of people and animals alike have fallen victim to frankenscience. There have been some great medical marvels to come from this, so it’s hard to be completely bitter.
An interesting note from the history books is the Georg Gottfried Zinke, who decided to get all his mates round one night and try some experiments on dogs ridden with rabies.
Georg wanted to show that rabies could be passed from a dog, to another dog, proving that rabies was infectious.
There’s a good chance they all ended up on the old Coca Cola because they got some of the saliva from the rabies ridden dog and injected it into hens and rabbits. Saying that, old Georg only went and proved that a virus can cross the species barrier.
In 1804, Georg Gottfried Zinke first transmitted rabies from a rabid dog to a normal one, and from dog to a rabbit and a hen, by injection of saliva.Louis Pasteur and Rabies: a brief note (2002)
