A 25-year-old male asked:

can you get rabies from somebody else from kissing or drinking from the same beer bottle that has been previously bitten by a dog 5 days ago?

Doubtful: The incubation of rabies usually ranges from 1-3 months. In a person exposed to a heavy mauling by an obviously sick rabid animal they might begin to shed virus in secretions in a few days. A better description of the exposure and any post exposure treatment would allow a more defined response.
