This is 'Hand Fixing Hand', a transhumanist version of M.C. Escher's 'Drawing Hands' (links to original) by Shane Willis. Some copy/pasted info about transhumanism while I inject coffee straight into my heart:

Transhumanism, abbreviated as H+ or h+, is an international intellectual and cultural movement that affirms the possibility and desirability of fundamentally transforming the human condition by developing and making widely available technologies to eliminate aging and to greatly enhance human intellectual, physical, and psychological capacities. Transhumanist thinkers study the potential benefits and dangers of emerging technologies that could overcome fundamental human limitations, as well as study the ethical matters involved in developing and using such technologies. They predict that human beings may eventually be able to transform themselves into beings with such greatly expanded abilities as to merit the label "posthuman".

So basically transhumanists are cyborg loving terrorists, that's what that means. Remember Luke Skywalker's robotic hand in Star Wars? I wonder what it would feel like to touch yourself with that. I bet like tearing your own penis off. I'll take a hook over that any day.

Thanks to Keith, who wants to leave this world with just as many robotic implants as he came with: two. Wait -- WHAT?!
