phrenology chart versus dermatome chart

My mom just sent me this dermatome chart (actually, she sent me this more useful chart, but the first link is prettier).

[More on dermatomes here.]

And of course the first thing that sprang to mind was: “Hey, phrenology wasn’t as bat-shit insane as I previously considered it.”

I mean, ok, it was really crazy. But in a so-close-and-yet-so-far kinda way. Ya know?

In other news, if I ever get a bicycle in the city I am sooooo getting one of these helmets.
