If this is supposed to dissuade me from using the 9mm for self defense
Not trying to sound wrong or anything but how is it buried with him and viewable at Harvard at the same time? Did they dig him up?mity2 said:Oh Mr Gage's skull and his 3foot iron bar(kept the rod which damaged him throughout his life as a souvenir, and it was buried with him in death) is available for viewing at the Harvard Medical School's Warren Anatomical Museum in Boston, Massachusetts

Lighten up Dude ! (lmao)
It's just an interesting article about a lucky guy who survived a terrible incident in his home.
Also notice it was in a foreign country and they entered his home by breaking the burglar bars.

mity2 said:yes. His remain was exhumed in 1864 for whatever the reason.
His rod, which was burried with him was also exhumed.
There is an inscription on the rod that reads, "This is the bar that was shot through the head of Mr. Phinehas P. Gage at Cavendish, Vermont, Sept. 14, 1848. He fully recovered from the injury & deposit this bar in the Museum of the Medical College of Harvard University. Phinehas P. Gage Jan 6 1850."
I read about him while I was taking psychology few years back, and did little study about him
