I’m not gonna shake his hand, he could have space cooties!
For those requiring proof of my inability to accomplish the Vulcan Salute. Here’s photographic evidence of the closest I can get to it. Everytime I try to get my pinky over or move my ring finger over the rest of the fingers come with it. I just can’t do it…
Yesterday was a fun day. Been working through all the roughs for the commissons and I wrote a fun little 10-15 comic story line that I’m going to put into the book as an exclusive thing! It’ll be well worth it.
I wrote a lengthy Blog post about 3 of my favourite games of last year. Feel free to read it. I warn you though there’s some spoilers and I get pretty personal.
I can bend my fingers in ways that look like they’re broken. >_>
awesome, I wish I could freak people out like that without seriously breaking my hands.
Sushiboy, I have a friend who can do that, but they found out it is a genetic condition that causes his body to not produce enough of a particular chemical. It can lead to arthritic symptoms in the knees and hips.
As for the hand thing? Keep trying arg! It takes practice.
Eh, that swastika salute you’re doing is good enough.
you scared me for a sec there… I had actually thought I subconciously drew that.
This is highly illogical V/_
(. Y .) 8=======D – – – – – – heh…
Yeah, but lets see that logical, green blooded SOB draw a funny webcomic.
It’d be so unfunny that it’d be funny again.
“Humor dictates that I throw this pie in your face, but it is more logical that we sit down and share it.” *Forks*
That’s actually kinda brilliant. I should write a series of star trek jokes…
Funny you should say that. LM has produced a few comic books via darkhorse about 11 years ago.
If I recall it was something about a steam powered man.
Dif-tor heh smusma.

Oh that mitchell and webb look. I loved this one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HMGIbOGu8q0
Even though I cringe at broken fingers and it ranks right up there as something that turns my blood cold with anxiety, I’m strangely galvanized by those Don Martin-esque mangled fingers…
Yeah if I see a person get a paper cut I grow cold…
Paper cuts are creepy. Something that tiny should not hurt so much.
Should’ve flipped him the bird instead…
That wa sthe original panel 5… didn’t seem as funny to me…
Have you tried using two rubber bands and two car jacks?
yep! I think it’s just how my muscles are conditioned… I’d have to probably spend an inordinate amount of time just to see some improvement. Not too high on my list.
How did that work out for you? And alright, if you want to live your entire life unfulfilled, then you can do that. But know that its your fault that you never learned to do it!
The way I started being able to do the Vulcan salute was with a pencil. You place the pencil between your ring and middle finger and just practice with it there, and then remove it for a while until it comes to you.
You know, if you’re really geek enough to go through all that to do it.
PENCILS? that archaic form of drawing?? PSSSSSHAW…
My grandma loves Star Trek and Dr. Spock in particular. ‘Live long and prosper’ has been drilled into my brain since I was born and I can instantly perform a carefully choreographed hand gesture ballet with that as the star.
do you where a tutu on your wrist as well? because that would just be awesome to see.
Don’t worry, ARG, I’ll Vulcan Salute for the both of us!
Live long and Prosper!
Aww, come on. I trained myself to do that when I was, like, 4. I guess my miniature finger muscles were more malleable than your current finger muscles.
Eh, well, apparently they had to glue Zachary Quinto’s fingers together when they made the newest Star Trek movie. He was the sole redeeming quality of that movie…
I rather enjoyed that film. Nothing special but it was fun. and My favourite part was Karl Urban’s Bones.
Ha! Goddamn, that’s hilarious, I think if I’m ever confronted by a Vulcan at a comic convention I’ll have to follow suit. Thanks for the tip!
HAH! ARG can’t do something as simple as the Vulcan Salute! \//_
Here’s a tip for that Arg. During winter wear gloves and put a marble between the middle and ring finger ’till your hand gets used to it spreading like that. Thats how i learned to do this in first grade 😀
Ahahahahah I can do it just fine!
