May-17-18  Luke Warm: zborrsi8,

Thanks for the story of Phineas Gage. Didn't know it. It's 166 years now since the rod went though his brain. He kept the rod. The accident "transformed him from a clean-cut, virtuous foreman into a dirty, scary, sociopathic drifter."

Grave damage to the frontal lobes = something essentially human can vanish.

I guess his impulse control and planning ability suffered pretty good, too. Language, motor skills, reasoning, intelligence intact, but prefrontal damage betrays a lack of ambition, foresight, empathy, and other ineffable traits.

Lost his job.

"Post-accident, women couldn't stand to be in his presence." Well, that's normal for many men, pre-frontal damage or not.

"Historians have also noticed, not surprisingly, that myths have more staying power when they’re good stories." Duh.

  Count Wedgemore: <zborris8> I join the others in praise of that link about Phineas Gage, fascinating story!

<Luke Warm: The accident "transformed him from a clean-cut, virtuous foreman into a dirty, scary, sociopathic drifter.">

Well, if you actually read the interesting article that <zborris8> posted, this alleged transformation is now being seriously questioned by modern scholars:

<Recent historical work, however, suggests that much of the canonical Gage story is hogwash, a mélange of scientific prejudice, artistic license, and outright fabrication. In truth each generation seems to remake Gage in its own image, and we know very few hard facts about his post-accident life and behavior. Some scientists now even argue that, far from turning toward the dark side, Gage recovered after his accident and resumed something like a normal life—a possibility that, if true, could transform our understanding of the brain’s ability to heal itself.>

Getting ready the night before is fine, but that sounds a little OCD. What's it take to get those out, 20 seconds?

No, no, you don't get it. If it was OCD, he would sleep in the kitchen with the light on to save more time in the morning. I would hate to know he washes his hands the night before also.

May-17-18  Dr Winston OBoogie: I've decided that this song is above Slideaway and Waterloo sunset on my list of best ever non Beatles songs. It's simply outstanding and Billy Joel is a genius, right below Lennon and McCartney as a songwriter. It's just a joyous, uplifting anthem. Truly #GODLIKE!

Scenes from an Italian restaurant https://youtu.be/M7BliFKQ0bc

<Brenda and Eddy were still going Steady in the summer of '75

When they decided the marriage would
Be at the end of July

Everyone said they were crazy
Brenda you know you're much too lazy

Eddie could never afford to live that
Kind of life

But there we were wavin' Brenda and
Eddie goodbye

They got an apartment with deep
Pile carpet

And a couple of paintings from Sears
A big waterbed that they bought
With the bread

They had saved for a couple
Of years

They started to fight when the
Money got tight

And they just didn't count on
The tears.

They lived for a while in a
Very nice style

But it's always the same in the end
They got a divorce as a matter
Of course

And they parted the closest
Of friends

Then the king and the queen went
Back to the green

But you can never go back
There again

Brenda and Eddie had had it
Already by the summer of '75

From the high to the low to
The end of the show

For the rest of their lives
They couldn't go back to
The greasers

The best they could do was
Pick up the pieces

We always knew they would both
Find a way to get by

That's all I heard about
Brenda and Eddie

Can't tell you more than I
Told you already

And here we are wavin' Brenda
And Eddie goodbye

A bottle of red, a bottle of white
Whatever kind of mood you're in tonight

I'll meet you anytime you want
In our Italian Restaurant

Songwriters: Billy Joel>

And that's the story of Brenda and Eddie!:)

May-17-18  Luke Warm: Last night I’m watching Jeopardy and the topic “Homophones” comes up and I thought “Jeezcrise, what’s the definition of that again?” so I looked it up. The trick is that the words sound the same but can have different meanings. The spelling can be the same or different.

I picked a rose. I rose from bed.
I ate a carrot. It’s 24 carat gold.

Rose-rose, Carrot-carat.
