Live Long and Prosper - LLAP

Star Trek fans say goodbye to Spock a.k.a. Leonard Nimoy.  My mum used to watch Star Trek (1966 - 69).  I remembered watching all the movies of the original series.  I love Star Trek, too.

Spock used "Live long and prosper" with his Vulcan hand gesture a lot.  In the past, my sis used the same gesture often.  Now, we are laze to just use LLAP.  And, we use emoji for this gesture - fingers parted between the middle and ring finger in a "V" shaped \\//

I think Sheldon of The Big Bang Theory (CBS) doesn't like the young Spock from remakes of the Star Trek movies.  But I like Zachary Quinto plays the young Spock.  In this season or the next season of The Big Bang Theory, we may see Sheldon mention about Leonard Nimoy.  Sheldon loves Leonard Nimoy and Spock.  Well, the old Spock.

In Star Trek (2009), the old Spock mentioned to young Spock about he needs to create a Vulcan colony.

But he didn't need to.  It is already established, old Spock.  It's in Albert, Canada!  If you don't believe me, please search Vulcan, Albert.  Leonard Nimoy visited there once.

Leonard Nimoy passed away yesterday (February 27, 2015).  He not only misses the release of  the new Star Trek 3 movie in July 2016, also the 50th anniversary of the Star Trek franchise.  It will not be the same to so many fans not to see him in the conversions of Star Trek.

Before I end this blog post, I'd like to share a tweet from Leonard Nimoy.  "A life is like garden.  Perfect moments can be had, but not persevered, except in memory.  LLAP"

Leonard Nimoy, you will be missed.  Rest in peace.
