Just curious. I've always been able to do it, I didn't realise some people couldn't do it.

Do I look like a Vulcan to you? Then logically, what would you expect the answer to be?
(Hint: In the photo below, I'm wearing my traditional Vulcan Ambassador Tlor Thakal robes.)

May you live long and prosper.

I can. It is very easy on my left hand and still easy (though not as easy) on my right.

The Spock hand thing? If so I can do it very easily with both hands.

^ Most likely

I couldn't do it as a kid for the longest time, but eventually I was able to train my hands into being able to.

Can't do it, I've always felt like it was freak of nature when I saw it.

I can't whistle.

But I can do the "live long and prosper" gesture with either hand pretty easily.

Alright, I got out the Super Glue and had a go at the Vulcan thingie. Unfortunately, the walk-in clinic is closed on Sunday! I'm going to have to go to the ER and pay $300! I should have waited until Monday!

I was doing the "Vulcan Salute" when Star Trek was just a twinkle in Gene Roddenberry's eye!

There was this Jewish family down the block, and one of the kids said, "Betcha can't do this!", and I did it.

Easy as matzoh.
