    It Can Become Frustrating...

    I can raise both eyebrows individually, can almost do the mexican wave with them, must say i dont try that one often though. my eyebrows sometimes rule my conversations, even if i dont want to raise one, if someone says something that my brain acknowledges to be stupid, yep you...

    Can't Everybody?

    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.

    I can raise my left eyebrow,

    and I can raise both eyebrows, but I can't raise my right eyebrow. I don't know why.

    But Not The Other

    Right but not the left, and it irks me. But at least I can raise one, I know some folks who can't.

    Ambidextrous

    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 ;-)

    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.

    Just The Left

    I can only raise the left one by itself. No matter how hard I try there is no way I can raise the right one without the left one going up too, weird. :P

    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...

    Haha I So Can!

    I can raise either of them by itself, I got the idea of trying it out when I was younger I used to watch Wrestling and notice that "The Rock" does it! I rarely do it though as it's not very attractive and abit silly but I sometimes do it for a laugh and thats about it! Also not...

    The only time I really raise one eyebrow is

    when I'm listening to a story someone is telling and me questioning its authenticity. Lol

    The Right One Is Wrong

    It's really nothing but I'm proud that I can raise one of my eyebrows. Only the left one. Why won't you raise, the right one?!?!??

    Only The Right Side Though

    I don't know why, but I can only raise the right side.  I have no idea why the left side wont rise - the lazy bastard!

    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.

    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 can easily raise the left one,

    but I'm training myself to raise the right one. It takes some effort. I really think I need to find better things to do with my time. 😆

    but just like me one eyebrow, only right one can be raised.  I can only do it by my left hand.

    Yeah, Like the Rock.

    I don't know why but it's something I've always been able to do. I used to watch quite a bit of WWF wrestling and the Rock was one of my favorites. All of those guys are so over the top it's hillarious. Now, I just do it to make people laugh. Of course, I know...

    Only One

    I can only raise my left eyebrow independently from my right. I can do both at the same time obviously but when I try to raise my right it never works out for me.

    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 Never Could Before

    My mom can raise one eyebrow, too, and she was always extremely, vocally proud of it. I thought I could train myself to do it but just ended up making ridiculous faces. I was pretty well over it by high school. Then, a couple years ago, I was making this kind of sardonic "...

    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.

    Riiight....

    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!
