Rabies bonus feature/Thank you to L. Pastuer

PHIL_4525_lores.jpg
Louis Pastuer - not just the guy whose responsible for your milk (and orange juice, beer, almonds, ciders, soy sauce, & about a dozen other products) being cooked @ high temps to make them last longer - but a brilliant scientific mind whose researches into disease prevention has saved countless lives.
The image here is an actual mosaic from Pasteur's crypt, representing the well-known episode of the shepherd Jean-Baptiste Jupille (second person ever to be vaccinated against rabies) struggling against a rabid dog.
In his honor, I sugguest we sing a rousing chorus of "Louie, Louie" while drinking our favorite pasteurized beverages - who's with me?
