Live Long and Prosper

I guess it's one of those things that some can do and some cannot. You know, like wiggle your ears or roll your tongue.

It seems the Vulcan Salute is another one.

What's bad though is when a Vulcan cannot do the hand gesture. The new Mr. Spock, Zachary Quinto, in The Star Trek movie cannot. He either had to have his hand positioned the right way before the camera shot or skin glue was used if it was the middle of the shot.

What was the eye opener for me was to discover that William Shatner could not do the gesture either. Conan O'Brien discovered this during his Tonight Show.

Can you do the Vulcan Salute? May you live long and prosper.


  1. Omg lol I can't do the Vulcan Salute to save my life. I'm the only one in my family that can't. My two middle fingers don't want to be separated.

  2. that was so funny. I can do the Vulcan on both hands and can't figure out why it is so hard for everyone else! thanks for the laugh,
