    I sometimes greet known Barsoom fans with "Kaor."

    Nonsense. You just have a black belt in Tai Po.

    I'm right handed and can do it with both hands, but it looks much better and is easier to do with my left hand. When I do it with my right hand it is slightly painful as well. :confused:

    Probably because A. Not all Vulcans have the same dominant hand, and B. Not all human actors have the same dominant hand.

    I'm right-handed, and have no trouble doing the Vulcan salute with either hand.

    As for hand-shaking... I dislike shaking hands, but when I do it, it's with my right hand. It was very awkward on one occasion when somebody tried to shake hands with me and he used his left hand.

    I can do it with either hand, and both feet too.
