Mrs 4-8 was reading an article in one of her magazines the other night and came across an article where a woman had developed alien hand syndrome following an operation on her brain. According to the article her left arm developed a âmind of its ownâ and typed random stuff on the computer and hung up the phone when the woman was speaking. A quick Google confirmed this syndrome exists saying âWhilst a patient has complete control over one hand; they report, and it can be shown, that they have no control over the action of their other handâ and goes on to say âIn at least one case it has been reported that a patient was happily driving home when the Alien Hand seized the wheel of the vehicle nearly causing an accident whilst in other cases, simply trying to write one's own name is thwarted by the other hand pushing the controlled hand away from the paper being written uponâ. Now is this a curse or a blessing? And what an almost perfect excuse for getting away with stuff. Sorry officer I didnât mean to punch that Chav, grope that young lass, go shoplifting - it was my âAlien Handâ. So just in the interest of âresearchâ if you had Alien Hand what would you try and get away with?
