'Alien Hand' Syndrome Turns Limbs Monstrous

And you thought your RELATIVES were fucked in the head.
  • i love alien hand syndrome. they don't mention in that article that sometimes the hands attack their owners.

    i actually used the phrase in a poem...


  • Oh, but they are.

    Hey, now I know what's wrong with them: Alien Head!
    • you have an "M" tabby too! hooray! weird seeing our icons next to each other.

      (with or without alien paw syndrome...)
  • wasn't *my* hand. honest.

    The milder form of this disassociation syndrome can occur in almost any limb. "I woke up one morning and found this -- this *leg* in my bed! This detached leg! I was grossed out, and tried to throw it out of bed, and somehow I wound up on the floor!"
    --paraphrasing from Oliver Sacks' _A Leg To Stand On_, I believe.

    And oh, the _How I Learned To Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb_ references... and that glorious Ash-vs.Hand sequence in _Evil Dead 2_.
  • from memory, so etc.

    "And this device we call the Revolutionary. The subject lies here. Will you, chatelaine?"

    And later in The Claw of the Conciliator, the "dine by night" scene is not irrelevant to CJK. One wonders.
