I am a Star Trek fan, but even so, I have seen some really far-out behaviour from other Trekkies--dressing up "in character" at Star Trek conventions (I've actually seen this at two London conventions), or in the case of one guy, even remodelling his house interior into a starship.
However, I have been wondering: Has anyone, especially a Spock fan, ever gone as far as being "Spocked"--having his ears surgically altered to look like Mr. Spock's pointed ears? I can't imagine any self-respecting, professional plastic surgeon actually "Spocking" someone! (Would it even be possible surgically?) How would a "Spocked" Trekkie look to his peers--would he "hear" no end of ridicule from everyone else? I wonder if there are any actual cases of this in the medical literature--or anywhere else?
