The Mummy

I'm halfway through The Mummy by Anne Rice.  I predict I will have nightmares tonight.

Ramses just tested the powers of his immortality potion on a severed mummy hand.  Imagine, if you will, a shriveled, dry, blackened claw transforming to a fleshy, pink, human hand.  Then it begins scratching at the table.  Oh, and it's immortal, so you can't kill it.  So you chop it up with a knife and the pieces begin to bleed, but they are still moving.  If the pieces get close enough together, will they reform a functional hand and come after you?

Sweet dreams!
