    I think we can know how lyssa kills by looking at how Naegleria Fowleri kills, because they both cause encephalitis, and vthe organ failure might be caused by the swelling brain compresses to the brain stem.

    Ants, and their sweet tooth cousin bees, are all girls. Angry sterile women under the command of a hormonal nightmare and insecure queen. The chicks do all the work and call the shots. Males aren't just subs, they're dead. Not my opinion, it is what it is. Food for thought.
