In Hank's video on Phineas Gagenote a 19th-century railroad worker who had an iron rod pass through his head, removing a fraction of his brain and severely altering his personality, Hank shares an excerpt of the notes that a doctor took while examining Gage, said excerpt including an event where Gage threw up "half a teacupful" of brain. Hank's thoughts?
