Re: Can you raise only one eyebrow?

I can, but only my right. I have to push the left one down in order to raise just the right one up. So I basically furrow my brow and the lift the right brow.

Re: Can you raise only one eyebrow?

Yes. Only my right one. When I try to do the left I end up closing my right eye for some reason.

I don't have the facial features for raising an eyebrow anyways. Doesn't look at all impressive, just lopsided.

Re: Can you raise only one eyebrow?

Yes, but I can only raise my left eyebrow. My right eyebrow refuses to budge.

Conversely, I can wink with my right eye, but I can't wink with my left one.

I can also raise and lower each one seperately.

Re: Can you raise only one eyebrow?

Thanks to Mr. Spock, I sure can! As a child, I taught myself to raise an eyebrow over each eye, and to make the Vulcan greeting with both hands, just in case... for some reason, I don't know, kid logic, you know? Anyway, yes, I can raise my eyebrows independently of one another.

I saw a dude with one of those fish on his car yesterday. And then I looked closer and it had nacelles and said Trek, and I wanted to do the Vulcan greeting to him. But that was too nerdy, even for me. But I was so excited that there was another Trekkie next to me!

Re: Can you raise only one eyebrow?

I really can't raise an eyebrow without completely contorting my entire face. It's less "raising an eyebrow" and more "lowering everything else."
