On September 13, 1848, a 13-pound tamping iron is blown through the head of railroad construction foreman Phineas P. Gage, entering beneath his left cheekbone and exiting the top of his head. The metal bar lands 30 yards away, taking with it much of his left frontal lobe. Gage never loses consciousness, even while the doctors examine his wound. Two months later, he is well enough to return home and resume an active life of work and travel.

Tamp softly if you carry a big stick
The first elephant made to fly by a train
I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy
A good drinking song to sing along as long as you've decided on having that bottle along
