Posted February 27, 2015 by Anonymous

RIP Spock.

  • Leonard Nimoy invented the Vulcan Hand Salute during the filming of a Star Trek episode. The gesture was borrowed from the Jewish High Holiday services. The Kohanim (priests) bless the congregation by extending “the palms of both hands…with thumbs outstretched and the middle and ring fingers parted.” Nimoy used the same gesture, only with one hand.
