Can you do the Vulcan Salute from Star Trek?

I can't. I wish I could.

EDIT: I can do it now. Only with my left hand though.

I can do it on my right hand, but not my left. Since I'm right handed I think that counts as a yes.

With both, simultaneously even.

CRAP! When ever I try to do it, I end up kinda flipping people off.

DAMN YOU MIDDLE FINGER!

Not good, not good at all. (sigh) I guess that would be a big NO for me.

Can do it on my right hand, but haven't practised on the left hand yet.

All it takes is alittle practise.
You need to teach yourself how to use the propper muscles. Once you know which muscles to use, it's easy.

I'm right handed, but better with my left hand actually... all those years of finger stretching for guitar scales pay off!

Nope, but seeing as how I don't really like Star Trek, its not too big of a loss.

I can do it since I was a little kid.

You can't have been a kid in the '90s and not be able to Vulcan salute. Even if you are just a 6 year old kid who doesn't give a crap about the trek, you still have to be able to do it.


The very existence of flamethrowers proves that some time, somewhere, someone said to themselves, "You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I'm just not close enough to get the job done." -George Carlin
