The man with a hole in his head


"Phineas Gage had a hole in his head,
and ev'ryone knew that he oughta be dead.
Was it fate or blind luck,
though it never came clear,
kept keepin' on year after year…"

  2. I can vaguely recall seeing the Gage skull in a museum in Pittsburgh when I was little. Went back recently - it wasn't there.
