It Would Only Be Logical To Wish Spock a Happy Birthday

Leonard Nimoy is eighty years old today! Of course, portraying Spock in the original Star Trek series has immortalized him forever in the eyes of geeks everywhere. He wasn't comfortable with being typecast at first, but over the years he's embraced the notoriety. He's also retired from acting several times, and ends up in some project or another - such as the "new" Star Trek movie, Priceline commercials with Bill Shatner, voiceover work, or whatever. He's also an accomplished director - besides the Star Trek work, Three Men and a Baby is his as well. Other ventures into authoring books and music were moderately successful.

So, Happy Birthday, Mr. Nimoy! I'm gonna steal his signature closing from his tweets as @TheRealNimoy on Twitter - LLAP. Live Long And Prosper.

Eighty's nothin! Vulcans live way longer than that.
