Phineas typically does not have any trouble at work. He works on the railroad with explosives.
You gotta go to the hospital boss.
One day at work Phineas gets distracted and looks away from his explosives. The pole that blows things up slips out of hit hand.
The pole goes straight through Phineas's head and he falls down.
A pole went through my skull. You see I blow things up for a living.
This is incredible. I have never seen anything like this. What happened.
I don't know what happened doctor.
To there surprise Phineas got up from where fell and did not even look phased.
In a hurry his employees brought him to the doctors. They thought he would die on the way.
At the doctors office he has Phineas was feeling well. There was a hole through his head and the doctor asked him what happened. His men did not know what to say but Phineas insisted on himself telling what the doctor did. Phineas went to live on for another 19 years.
