    You know, I always tried to imitate Spock from

    Star Trek, in my mind he was just waaaaaayyyyy cool! I just couldn't ever quite get it. Absolutely no muscle control at all. Nothing I could do about it. I tried for a long, long time. Maybe, I pondered, it would impress some girls or something. Well, no. And then just...

    I can raise my right eyebrow.

    It's kind of fun because it emphasizes my "Dude. Really?" Face. However, I can't raise my left by itself.

    I can see lots of people can raise only one eyebrow so I guess it makes me eyebrow ambidextrous that I can raise either. On a side note...putting my vote in to change the group pic to Mr. Spock raising the "that is illogical" eyebrow ;-)

    Cant Everyone?

    Cant everyone raise an eyebrow? I can raise either one, i never thought of it as something that some people cant do... not like rolling your tongue or doing the "live long and prosper" salute from star trek, which again, i can do both.

    I use this a lot, more

    than I should, really. My friends always say I'm a human bullshit detector, since whenever someone's lying, my right eyebrow goes up and up and up and... Well... You get the idea.

    I Can...

    ...raise one eyebrow. I think The Rock may have been the one who inspired me to do it. I watch wrestling and he wrestled when I was little. Raising the eyebrow was one of his trademarks.

    My older brother used to watch Star Trek the original series and Mr. Spock became the inspiration to try this illogical yet fascinating skill.

    And when I do, those who know me well know exactly what I'm thinking.  "Riiight! Tell me another one Spanky."  When I raise my right eyebrow, it means I KNOW you are lying to me and you have one chance to come clean before I rip you a new one!

    And I trained them both.

    They're not as prominent as Nicholson's; They're not as vixeny as Sherilyn Fenn's; and they can`t do that weirdo eyebrow snake thing that the Rock does, but I do know how to use them if I need to. After years of extensive research and testing, they can now raise much higher...

    I thought everyone had the ability to do this. Something I've always been able to do. I don't even think about it....it's a natural expression for me. Hmm...think I may have to google this & do a lil research.

    Fiddling Around With My Facial Muscles

    That's how I first learned to raise my right eyebrow singly, all those many years ago. I think I was fourteen or sixteen when I first managed it, spending time bored, sitting alone in my room, messing with my facial muscles. At first, I had to hold my left down while raising them...

    I Can Only Raise My Left Eyebrow! Xd

     Yeeeah, this is me! I always knew how to lift one eyebrow (for as long as I can remember). It often made one of my friends laugh because it looks funny. :) It's pretty easy to raise my left eyebrow, but I notice it's hard for me to raise my right eyebrow. Hahahaha.
