On this day, I learned that there was such a thing as a glacier calf, but the nature of this icy thing, I still could not ascertain. Apparently they make noise?!
I learned that the Hindu take their devotion to all things Cow very seriously.
I learned that geneticbreakthroughs are coming along splendidly for those with HIV
I learned that rabies is harmful because of the swelling on the brain damaging tissues. There have been successful rabies survivors who were put into a coma until that swelling was taken down by the anti-bodies. The virus has the ability to wall itself off, so this process takes a while longer than it might otherwise.
I learned that a Rice Christian is someone who converts to gain the tangible benefits to the faith; food, shelter, etc.
